Our Journey in the Dynamic World of Logistics

  • Galaxy, a family-owned private limited company, took flight as air freight forwarders in Mumbai.
  • As the Indian freight market soared, so did our ambition.
  • Adapting and evolving to meet our customers’ ever-expanding logistics needs, we embraced the limitless opportunities of the industry.

Visionary Board of Directors

Founder | Managing Director

Fardeen Malbarwala


Founded by Mr. M. Afzal Malbarwala, who started as a young entrepreneur with a passion for freight forwarding, the company has grown into one of India’s leading logistics providers. With over four decades of experience, Mr. M. Afzal Malbarwala’s vision is now carried forward by his son Fardeen, who leads the marketing efforts and product development initiatives. Together, they continue to drive Galaxy’s success by delivering high-quality solutions and fostering strong client relationships. The legacy of the late Mr. Tayeb Ismail Malbarwala, who laid the foundation of the company’s values, lives on through the team’s passion and dedication to excellence.

What can a father-son duo with a relentless passion for business do?

Mr. Tayeb Ismail Malbarwala and his son, Mr. M. Afzal Malbarwala, rolled up their sleeves against all odds to launch a cargo business in 1989 when there were only a handful of cargo operators in India.

The journey from a single, tiny establishment to a global leader in logistics has been remarkable. Today, Galaxy Freight spearheads a new logistics movement worldwide driven by trust, transparency, and efficiency.
