Sitics inks its second acquisition deal with Udgam Logistics

This is the second acquisition by Palakkad-based Sitics, only three months after it acquired a majority stake in tech-enabled logistics startup Quifers.

Third-party logistics company Sitics Logistic on Tuesday announced the acquisition of Udgam Logistics, a Delhi-based cold chain and distribution startup.

The company did not disclose the deal amount. However, it claims that the deal gives Sitics an entry into the $25-billion cold-chain market

It is the Palakkad-based company’s second acquisition inked only three months after acquiring a majority stake in tech-enabled logistics startup Quifers in May 2021.

While Quifer acquisition boosts its goal of digital transformation from a solution-based service provider to a technology-based service provide, Sikander AM, Founder and CEO of Sitics Logistic said the current deal will help Sitics target a new segment and add value to its clients.

“Sectors like Pharma, QSR, HORECA, Agriculture, Dairy, and Marine are rapidly growing and in need of a world-class temperature-controlled supply chain, which we will be able to provide through Udgam’s expertise, experience, and processes,” he added.
