The journey of Ghatge & Patil began when Mr. Vasantrao Ghatge who was then a Botany professor at Shivaji University and Mr. J. B Patil was a freight carrier with 2 second-hand trucks transporting goods between Bombay and Solapur. One fine day, when the two friends were roaming the streets of Kolhapur, Mr. Ghatge asked if he could borrow a truck from Mr. J. B Patil for carrying his brother's goods. Mr. Patil agreed to help immediately. After completion of the job in the middle of 1944, the idle trucks poked an idea of forming Ghatge Patil Transports Pvt. Ltd., and ever since that moment, the two never looked back. Owing to the sheer grit and dedication, the two formed the backbone of the organization which is the flagship transport organization of the Ghatge Group with a fleet of over 400 vehicles now
