Motilal Oswal’s research report on VRL Logistics
VRL Logistics (VRL) is an established logistics operator primarily focusing on the high-margin LTL segment (90% contribution from LTL and 10% from FTL in FY21). VRL is one of the largest asset owners in the industry and is well placed to capitalize on the growth opportunity presented by the logistics sector. VRL derived ~90% of its business from the Goods Transport (GT) segment, followed by 7% contribution from the Passenger Bus Service segment in FY21. Unlike its peers, VRL operated its own fleet of 4,687 trucks (capacity: 69,011t) and 280 buses at end-2QFY22. VRL uses biodiesel (15-25% of its fuel requirement) which helps it reduce fuel costs by INR3-4 per liter. Being the owner of a large fleet, VRL is able to negotiate for spare parts and maintenance-related costs better and provide enhanced service to its well-diversified client base. With robust volumes, expanding branch network and the improved cost efficiency measures, we expect VRL to clock a revenue/EBITDA/PAT CAGR of ~19%/22%/56%, respectively, over FY21–24.
We reiterate our BUY rating on the stock with a TP of INR580 premised on 30x FY24E EPS, implying 33% potential upside.
