List a few things that stood out for you during 2021? Business, Personal or life-changing? 

2021, taught us all that life is unpredictable and full of challenges. As they say, if life gives you lemons, make lemonade; make the best of it and enjoy what you enjoy. Lockdown was difficult for every organization. Companies struggle to transport their goods due to a shortage of trucks.

Though the government has permitted the movement and delivery of essentials goods, accessibility remains a challenge since the logistics were not moving at a fast pace because of many restrictions in place. There was a shortage of drivers since almost all of them have moved back to their hometowns.

Unavailability of sufficient labour at loading and unloading points was also hampering the logistics operations in the country. However, Antariksh Group as a team handled this time and headed towards the achievement of the organization goal.
