Pawan Jain and Rubal Jain

Watch their inspiring entrepreneurial journey


Pioneers of a future-ready logistics sector

Pawan Jain and Rubal Jain have earned a reputation as visionaries in the complex logistics sector in India. This reputation comes from the fact that this father-son duo worked on a shared vision which is simply to focus on staying a few steps ahead of the present.

The entrepreneurial journey of Pawan Jain started in 1975 when he moved from a small town in UP to Delhi with a meagre capital of INR5000. After the success in his first venture, he established Safexpress Pvt Ltd in 1997, which has since gone on to become India’s leading B2B logistics and express distribution company. Rubal, after completing his engineering at Columbia University, and his MBA at Stanford University, joined the company in 2006. With a finger on the pulse of India’s changing economy, they expanded their services to meet the growing demand in e-commerce, healthcare, consumer electronics, automotive, and many more.

With their primary focus on covering every square inch of India, Pawan and Rubal Jain aim to enable their customers increase the reach of their products across the nation. They have invested aggressively and strategically in technology, in a warehousing network, and in their partners to ensure that a nation-wide network is ready for Indian businesses. With over 75 logistics parks, a fleet of over 9000 trucks and delivery centres in over 735 cities, Safexpress continues to aim to be a partner in India’s economic growth journey.

With Pawan Jain and Rubal Jain at the wheel, Safexpress is well on the way of becoming Indian logistics’ future-ready face.
