Motilal Oswal said, “We maintain our positive stance on Transport Corporation as it is expected to benefit from: a) strong automotive demand, coupled with the addition of new clientele, driving 3PL growth, b) sustained thrust on demand for coastal shipping, c) traction in multimodal Logistics and, d) increasing contribution of LTL in the Freight segment, which will be margin-accretive.”

The financial services firm expects a growth in revenue/EBITDA/PAT of 18%/13%/13% over FY22-24, accounting for an increasing share of less than truck load (LTL) services in the overall freight revenue, new clientele in 3PL, and sustained trust for coastal shipping.
