DHL Express has expanded its Gujarat operations with the launch of a new service centre in Vadodara. This is the third facility of DHL Express in Gujarat, along with those in Ahmedabad and the recently opened facility in Surat.
The Vadodara Service Centre caters to Vadodara city and the surrounding areas of Savli, Halol, Waghodia, Por and Padra, covering a radius of approximately 45 km.
RS Subramanian, Senior Vice President and Country Manager of DHL Express India said: “For DHL, the state of Gujarat represents a huge growth opportunity – our continuing investments in Ahmedabad, the recent facility in Surat and now this new service facility at Vadodara – are testimonies to its potential. Vadodara is also strategically located to take advantage of the developing golden quadrilateral highway network that will connect Chennai, Kolkata, Mumbai and Delhi”.
The 8,500 sq ft facility has been set up to focus purely on international shipments, and will offer extended cut off times for the pick-up of documents and parcels; real time checkpoint visibility of shipments; and reduced transit time for inbound shipments with a same-day delivery commitment.
DHL’s major customers in Vadodara will include banks, engineering and manufacturing units, pharmaceuticals and traders.
