Inception

In the early 1960s when Madras was a major trading centre, a dire need was felt to connect the major cities of Kerala such as Calicut and Ernakulam for easier transportation of goods and parcels with Madras. The requirement of the retail traders in these cities were realized by Kerala Roadways with Mr. V.K. Moidu Hajee. As the proverb goes, “necessity is the mother of invention” three branches of KRS were established as a proprietary concern in Madras, Calicut and Ernakulam with the idea of implementing fast transport service from Madras without any transshipment points.

Milestones
  • With the Indian Bank Association recognizing the company in 1976, the company made great progress with big companies resorting to their services in cargo transportation.
  • The proprietary concern was transfered into a partnership (retaining the same name) in 1978 when CP Kunhi Mohammed became a partner. Later in 1981,a new company, Kerala Roadways (P) Ltd was established by intergrating the assets and liabilities of the firm.
  • In 1988 under the provision of Section 40A (Turnover clause) in accordance with the Amendment of the Companies Act, KRS became a deemed public limited company. Siraj MK and Nasly Mohammed joined the Board of Directors in 1987 and 1994 simultaneously.
  • Computerization in the firm began in 1988 and within 1995 almost all the major regional branches were equipped with the prevailing computing technologies. Throughout that period, the PC-Telex interface played a crucial role as all queries were transmitted through the same.
