Shipments are secured using the state-of-the-art features such as air suspension trailers with smart locks, GPS and CCTVs to capture and monitor the shipments' journey.

"The introduction of CBT will allow us to offer the fastest, safest and most cost-effective transport solution to support intra-SAARC trade in the entire supply chain. Our expertise will allow us to identify the shortest routes possible, and carefully manage resources.
