Managing Director | Frontline Group

Great things start with humble steps. A beginning by a team of few family members, Frontline Logistics have grown and expanded to 10 countries with 21 offices and 500 plus employees within a period of 11 years. Kuwait being the founding office and UAE being the corporate office, Frontline Logistics have also proved its strong existence in KSA, Qatar, Iraq, Bahrain, Oman, Lebanon, Afghanistan and India. An ultra-modern back end office, that accommodates 150 people, built in the Malappuram district of Kerala, provides round the clock support to all other office locations of the company.

It is time for Frontline Logistics to step into the educational arena. I understand that the investment in knowledge pays the best interest. By the inception of Frontline Academy Of Logistics, I dream to lead people to a better quality life. Changes will not happen unless proper knowledge is provided. Imparting proper knowledge develops a better perspective on how we look at life. It develops the powers of reasoning and right judgement. Education lends a hand to develop technologies in different areas like health care, construction, logistics, military and other business.

In all my travelling, I have had several opportunities to meet so many different people and hear their uplifting and interesting stories of life. This made me brood on how to reach out and contribute more to our society. Education was one word that sprang to my mind. Being an Educationist is a noble profession. This is a calling that keeps us going.

When many of the corporate companies have their hubs in various metropolitan cities like Delhi, Bangalore, Mumbai, Chennai etc, I always dreamed of bringing up my place, Eramangalam, to be a logistics hub and support my fellow beings to become ‘highly in demand’ Logisticians. I am of the opinion that if I could fly to this height, then my fellow villagers including the younger generations can. Having a social commitment and responsibility to my people, I take this opportunity of starting Frontline Academy of Logistics as a blessing showered upon me by the Almighty.

Frontline Academy of Logistics is open to all those who value and desire to attain knowledge for a bright and prosperous tomorrow.
