What our clients say

As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility initiative and also to lend a helping hand to the Government in this crisis, where there is severe shortage of life saving medical oxygen in the midst of the COVID 19 pandemic, Vedanta Group decided to operate the Oxygen Plant in our factory premises in Tuticorin and supply the Oxygen free of cost to the Government of Tamil Nadu.

In this regard, we required critical components needed for running the Oxygen Plant. Since these components were critically required and the time-frame was limited, we appreciate the professionalism and agility shown by the HTL team in organizing the carriage of this shipment in the most effective manner.

Vedanta Group is having a business association with HTL Logistics for close to two decades now and we certainly look forward to continuing the same for many more years to come, relying on HTL logistics to be one of our trusted logistics partners.
