Allcargo Logistics today announced the appointment of Adarsh Hegde as the managing director of Gati-KWE, one of the key arms of the recently acquired Gati Ltd.

Hegde, who took charge on October 5, will oversee the strategic and operational aspects of all the businesses at Gati-KWE. He will also be involved in implementating and executing a transformation project that is currently underway, said AllCargo Logistics in its release.

Gati-KWE is 70:30 joint venture between Gati Ltd and Kintetsu World Express (KWE) of Japan. Alongside, Hegde will continue to be the joint managing director of Allcargo Logistics.

“I see great potential in Gati-KWE’s expertise in the business as well as the team’s passion for delivering excellence,” the release quoted Adarsh Hegde, joint managing director at Allcargo Logistics, on his appointment.
