Patel Roadways Ltd.

In 1959, Asgar Patel started Patel Transport Corporation and purchased his first Truck. He drove it himself and ultimately later in 1962, he transformed Patel Transport Corporation to Patel Roadways (P) Limited and expanded the business and network as the Managing Director of the Company. Patel Roadways went on to become one of the biggest Road Transport companies in India and was converted into a Public Limited Company on 29th October 1993. This Transport company, carrying cargo worth Rs.60,000 million annually, was proud of a clientele in the likes of Glaxo, Unilver, Lipton, Parke Davis, Brooke Bond, to name a few. Later, “Patel Retail” was launched with a view of offering customers door pick-up - door delivery and time bound service packages at considerably lower rates than currently available. With its brand new fleet of trucks and the installation of the “WebXpress System” commissioned to enable clients to trace their shipments on the various stages of it's journey, Patel Retail carved a niche for itself.

The company became one of the largest logistics conglomerates in India offering unified solutions through surface transportation, Door-to-door Express service all over urban and rural India, besides offering services in warehousing and secondary distribution.

In 2019, the company divested the business to Stellar Innovative with the aim of shifting focus towards more lucrative business of Air Freight.

Having completed 50 glorious years, this Company earned the reputation of offering the finest services with strict adherence to delivery schedules.

Instant Cash - Another House of Patels Initiative
With the increasing number of expatriates overseas, the remittance business was bound to increase and so 'Instant Cash', a Global Instant Money Transfer Service was launched. When it comes to money, everyone's concern is safety & security, thus it was important to create a product which customers would be committed to and for which they were willing to pay a price. Instant Cash was another brand whose business was focused on the core brand values of trust, speed and efficiency. Another key component of the Instant Cash business was its pricing strategy - in comparison to banks, Instant Cash was the cheapest mode of money transfer available.

Wall Street Exchange Centre

In 1982, the House of Patels crossed national boundaries and entered the Foreign Exchange and Money Remittance business with the launch of Wall Street Exchange Centre (WSEC) in the U.A.E. Some of its products included buying and selling of bank notes as a Wholesale business, issue of Drafts to Expatriates worldwide, Instant Cash and Instant Draft. This chain of Exchange Centres soon extended to cover the globe with the formation of Wall Street Forex London Ltd. in London and Patel's Wall Street Exchange Ltd. in Hongkong.

In 2005, as part of his strategic alliance, Asgar Patel brought in Empost, a Company owned by the Federal Government of UAE, as a strategic investor, by selling his 60% Shares. The synergy of these two Institutions provided great convenience to the public utilising money exchange and money remittance services in the U.A.E. This alliance offered tremendous convenience to customers through a one-stop single window service for small as well as large customers who would like to change money, send or receive a remittance, buy a draft or simply post a letter or send a parcel to any location worldwide. With the aim of expanding his other businesses and venturing into new businesses, the Company was sold to Emirates Post in 2012.

Wall Street Finance LLC, USA

The success of the Money Exchange & Remittance Business in UAE, saw House of Patels enter the US market in the new millennium. With the setting up of Wall Street Finance LLC in New York, the Company had Remittance Licences from the State Banking Departments of New York, New Jersey and Georgia. The company had strategic tie-ups with other Money Transmitters like RIA who have licences in all the 50 States of the USA. Regular external compliance audits, training of staff and agents and software upgradation helped the Company to establish firmly as one of the leading players for Remittance Business.
