- TCI Express is in the business of express logistics (1% of the logistics industry). Express logistics relates to time bound delivery of cargo, which generally charges a premium over other logistics services (first mile, last mile, FTL, LTL). TCI express is 95% B2B and 5% B2C. B2B business largely relates to the line haul operations that requires specific skills and is generally considered to have a stronger moat than B2C business (competitive and mainly relates to last mile delivery). SME comprises 50% of the revenues, rest 13%, 11% and 26% contributed by the Automotive, Pharma and Others (Engineering, telecom, Consumer durable and Lifestyle) respectively
- FY21 has begun with a completely new landscape for the logistics business while April was largely spent in addressing the on-ground challenges (hiccups in interstate movement, greater micro-management of trucks), May is largely been seen as a phased wise pickup in manufacturing and related supply chain activities. The management indicated that in May, operations were at 35% of pre-Covid level, which has increased to ~ 70% of pre-Covid levels in June. Revival of the SME sector remains key to the fortunes of TCI Express. The company is expected to tide over the current crisis by continued automation and enhancing technological capabilities and reducing field footprints. We expect it to report a revival in revenue growth from FY22 driven by new branch additions and expansion of clients in the SME segment. On the EBITDA margin front, we largely expect it to remain rangebound at 11-12%, going ahead.
