The Goodrich story started in the year 1997, when the promoters of the company T. Venkataraman and R. Gopal incorporated a company called Goodrich Maritime Pvt. Ltd., in Mumbai, India. The objectives before the promoters were to provide Shipping Agency services to the Indian trade. In the 24 years’ of its existence, this company grew in a formidable manner, to encompass within its scope, activities ranging from various spheres of shipping and logistics services.
It expanded geographically from a small presence in Mumbai to various ports and ICDs in India and overseas. Today Goodrich has a very strong presence in overseas locations like China, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand. Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, Ivory Coast, Senegal and the USA, along with a cumulative employee strength of around 1000+ people. It is recognized by the Asian trade as “The Most Versatile and The Fastest Growing Logistics Company.
From a predominantly India-centric operation, Goodrich today has multiple global operations. The Goodrich Management has never believed in having an unlimited number of group companies needlessly, but always believed in creating additional companies in the group, with a clear-cut strategy in mind. Sometimes geographical and at other times activity-oriented!
The parent company, Goodrich Maritime is already ISO 9001-2015 certified, and along the way the Dubai outfit Goodrich Maritime LLC has also been similarly accredited by DNV-GL. Goodrich is also moving towards other product specific certifications.
