The World Logistics Passport (WLP), a loyalty programme established to increase trading opportunities between emerging markets, is expanding its network in India – with Hyderabad registering as a hub and two subsidiaries of the GMR conglomerate registering as partners, both operating in Hyderabad airport.
More than 10 countries are now part of the major policy initiative – trading nations include Brazil, Indonesia, and South Africa, amongst others. Also, major multinational corporations including UPS, Pfizer, Sony, Johnson & Johnson, and LG are also engaged with the WLP.
After Mumbai, Hyderabad is the second WLP Hub registered in India. The strategic location of the city is important for the country’s international exports of goods and services, totaling approximately $21 billion. With trade routes to Mumbai and New Delhi, as well as to the WLP’s global network, Hyderabad’s trade infrastructure includes Rajiv Gandhi International Airport, the company said.
Earlier this year, the WLP signed Mumbai International Airport (Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport), Nhava Sheva International Container Terminal (Mumbai), and Nepal as partners.
India, as one of the first countries to engage in our programme, showed a clear commitment to thinking differently about how goods and services move round the world.”~ Mike Bhaskaran, CEO, WLP
WLP creates opportunities for business across Africa, Asia, Central and South America to improve existing trading routes, and develop new ones through worlds first logistics loyalty programme for freight forwarders and traders.
