Twill, a digital freight forwarder designed to make shipping simple, has taken its first customer booking in India. Initially identified as one of Twill’s target export countries, later this year India will also be made an import country on the platform.

Twill is now present in eight countries, and alongside this continuous roll-out the platform is constantly being improved and updated. Different countries have different requirements and the flexibility of Twill means that the platform can be added to and adapted on an ongoing basis.

Troels Stovring, CEO of Twill commented: “The reason we’ve selected India as our next export country is simple: our customers were asking for it. Damco’s existing footprint in India is huge, and therefore offers us a lot of opportunity. We’re super excited to be continuing our global journey and have no doubt that including India will enable our customers to get much more value from using Twill. This is our first new country for 2018 – and there’ll be many, many more!”

Vishal Sharma, CEO India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka at Damco added: “Twill is the future of freight forwarding – we absolutely need something like this in today’s market if we are to come up with a value proposition that makes the whole shipping process easier for our customers. Twill’s focus is primarily on providing an excellent customer experience and we are delighted to be able to take part in such exciting developments here in India.”

Damco employs over 370 people in India across five offices, headquartered in Mumbai.

The Twill platform will continue to expand over the coming months, offering export and import services from even more locations. Experience just how simple shipping can be and sign up to make your first booking here:
