Integrating Environmental and Social Concerns
CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Without a sense of Caring, there is no sense of Community.
We at Agarwal Packers and Movers Limited have carved a comfortable niche in Transportation and Logistics sector, which is a result of our hard work, determination and the supreme quality of moving services. No matter how successful we get day by day, we will sincerely feel it as our responsibility to participate and contribute, to make the community, the society, the country, nature, and the world, a better place to live and thrive.
Taking care of our surroundings is our prime concern!
We, as a family of stalwart members, have been encouraging philanthropic activities, by taking initiatives to conquer community's challenges, supporting and promoting various social causes, by lending an important hand to drive the country's economy at a successful rate and funding the moving sector's drives for innovation. In addition, our processes are developed in line with conservation of natural resources, which also exhibits the fact that our team of packers and movers gets trained on various predetermined parameters that guide them to do the optimum utilization of resources with the minimum wastage.
We also understand that we cannot proceed any business without considering the future of our society and planet. Hence, we believe that it is our responsibility to apply our collective knowledge, talent and energies to the challenges that we all face at our workplace, and within our communities. We remain committed to make a positive impact on the world by investing financial and human capital in the issues that matter to the society as a whole.
Agarwal Packers and Movers Ltd feels it as its moral duty to care for less & under-privileged people and provide support to them. We donate warm clothes, blankets and other necessities to tribal people and other poor, deprived sections of our society. We work towards their welfare in a relentless manner and grab every opportunity to come at a service to them. Our purpose comes down to become a useful resource for the underprivileged society.
Ekal Vidayalaya Yojana is based on the thought "Wake up Bharat! Enlighten the world!"
Agarwal Movers Group believes in an old saying "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime". So, our motive behind joining the Bharat Lok Siksha Parishad is to contribute in educating poor/rural children for preparing them further to reap the fruits in future.
As a part of CSR Activity, Agarwal Movers Group had pledged 100 schools in year 2013-14 to resolve the plight of the masses living in remote and tribal regions of the nation through education. We have again vowed to take another 100 schools for the year 2014-15 though Bharat Lok Siksha Parishad's premier movement started as EKAL VIDYALYA EDUCATION which aims to educate and raise the masses for nation's development. As Swami Vivekananda once said "A nation is advanced in proportion to education and intelligence spread among the masses", so we are up to.
Empowering Drivers of Our Country
As an initiative to ensure the safety and security of drivers, we have launched one-of-a-kind driver seva kendra called the APM Driver Seva Kendra, first ever in the country at Dudu, Jaipur (India)
Did you know the fact that about 1,39,000 people die in road accidents each year out of which 26,678 people are killed due to sleep deprivation while on roads? This happens, because drowsy driving is still an elusive highway dilemma for the truck drivers during transit. The pain they experience is beyond the expectation. Realizing the issue, Agarwal Movers Group came up with, Driver Seva Kendra in 2012, a facility center for drivers. It's a place where they feel like being at home. The warm welcome and respect they get at the center by washing their feet makes them feel pleasant and elated. At the seva kendra, they sleep and refresh themselves. These elementary essentials at present are being used by 450- 500 truck drivers each day amounting to 15,000 trucks drivers in a month. If we count on the ratio then the results are overwhelming as this single Driver Seva Kendra has been able to save 468 lives in a single year through a simple concept of "Nindra daan" (Sleep) as a part of our Company's CSR activity.
Sleep deprivation and stress are the two prime factors which lead to fatal road accidents by truck drivers. For survival of Indian truck drivers, Shri Ramesh Agarwal has taken an initiative by building an APM Drive Seva Kendra at National Highway 08. This Seva Kendra provides a relaxing environment to them, where they can sleep peacefully and get all the basic facilities like laundry, health check-ups, barber, and wash rooms etc absolutely free of cost.
In the support of “Beti Bachao Beti Padhao” national campaign, our group’s Mentor, Shri Ramesh Agarwal has started a Bicycle Distribution program. On the 21st of every month, bicycles will be distributed to needy school-going girls, so that they don’t face any difficulty in commuting to their school regularly.
This campaign has been initiated by him in the memory of his mother, Mata Sunheri Devi, who always favored girls to be educated and self dependent.
As an initiative in the area of Training & Development, Agarwal Packers and Movers Ltd. has started a small Training Institute at Toshan near Hisar in Haryana to train the local young villagers, and transform them into professionally trained loaders, packers & computer operators especially for the logistics industry. This institute, which is an extension of the training school in Hisar, has now been shifted to DUDU due to the surge in the requirement for truck drivers.
This institute not only provides theoretical classes and practical training of driving to the drivers but also gives them motivational & behavioral classes. These well-trained and expert drivers are then offered jobs in Agarwal Packers and Movers Ltd. and are also assisted in finding jobs in other organizations if they have the interest to do so. The scope of training covers areas like maintenance of trucks, following traffic rules and to handle any unforeseen situations like accidents, vehicle and goods' theft, etc. The training is for 3 months, and during these 3 months, they are exposed and trained in all aspects and verticals of driving at a very affordable and concessional cost.
Regular medical check-ups awareness and counseling camps are organized for various diseases including AIDS/ HIV and other health related issues.

We have the best of professionals working with us who are capable of working with the team spirit and even with the people having different set of capabilities and talent.

Rights to Women to Enlighten India

We are always confident that if there is a balance in the Leadership Team of Men & Women, organization would march to the new heights of success in near future.
The theme of "conservation of natural resources" is seamlessly blended into our ways of thinking, planning and working. We strive on saving fuel by choosing the shortest routes to the destination point and taking the maximum advantage of shared transportation. We, thus, came up with a revolutionary concept of transportation via our humongous specially-designed Household Carriers, which allow two consignments' transportation at a time to the same destination place. Our drivers are trained in such a way that they use the minimum required oil while driving the trucks, so that there is no wastage of natural resources in any possible way.
Our strategy, since the beginning, has been revolving around the maximum conservation of resources; that is why we are making use of Trendy Bags and Fabric Sheets (made of artificial fabric cloth) in the Packing process, our other researched outcomes. These packing materials are robust and can be used and reused a number of times that saves the cost by 26% while upraising the quality by 260%. That is how, we ensure that the use of paper is kept at minimum while executing the Packing stage.
Go Green - Save Our Planet
The company has taken numerous steps towards "Green Revolution". We have been encouraging our employees to plant trees everywhere for preventing pollution and the problem of "Global Warming".
We are an equal opportunity employer, and irrespective of gender, caste and creed biases, encourage people from all parts of the society, and believe in eradicating crime by giving an opportunity to prisoners of Tihar to rehabilitate them in society and live a respectable life.
We are proud to have a successful employment record of such recruitment, and continue to be a part of 'Tihar's Campus Recruitment Drives' conducted regularly by Jail Authorities.
We strongly believe that discipline learnt and practised throughout their career with defense services, the ex-servicemen contribute to a great extent in delivering the maximum benefits to the society and the organization. So, we regularly participate in 'Placement Drives' organized by Defense Services Placement Cell, and are being benefited by their dedication towards work and organization.
We at Agarwal Packers and Movers Limited feel that it is our responsibility to come ahead at once for the society in trouble or undergoing pain, to provide the real-time assistance and help. At the time of 2013 Uttarakhand disaster, we, as the APML family, extended our helping hand to offer contributions and relief to the disaster-stricken areas and the victims and their families. We always understood our social responsibilities as a Corporate and made our Carriers and team members readily available to assist the people who were trapped in the flood-affected regions of the state. We sent our trucks with life-saving materials like food, medicines, drinking water etc. to the people on disaster locations in Uttarakhand to save the precious lives. As it was not possible for everyone to go there and help them, so we provided free and consolidated logistic support to those individuals who wanted to contribute relief materials to help the sufferers. Moreover, we are always on the heels of the calamitous events such as Haryana and Orissa floods, which are recurrent year by year and pose a lot of disturbances and threats to many lives, in order to provide a relief and support as much as we can and whenever the need arises.
Also, whenever our country faced an alarming situation after the terrifying terrorist attacks or any depressing activities, we have felt it as our prime duty to provide our services to the country and to all our brothers and sisters affected by such attack. Thence, post 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, we offered our free-of-cost services to move the household goods of the families who suffered the effects of the attacks.
Agarwal Packers and Movers Ltd provided free Logistics to send relief material to Uttrakhand in 2013 at the time of devastating disaster.
Agarwal Packers and Movers Ltd provided free Logistics to send the relief material to Kerela at the time of destructive disaster.
APML provided free logistics support by sending trucks to deliver the relief materials initiated by Delhi High Court in a Kerala Flood Relief Fund Camp for the flood sufferers.
We are continuously in the service of mankind by successfully organizing the Blood Donation Camp and collecting blood from the volunteer.
