DHL Supply Chain, the global market leader for contract logistics solutions, announced an investment of Euro 100 million to further strengthen its logistics infrastructure in India.  This will include development of 8 world class Multi-Client sites (MCS) across India and upgrading its current fleet with technologically advanced transportation vehicles to meet the growing customer demands from various sectors.  The new MCS facilities will add a further 5 million square feet of warehousing space, and will be located at prime cities such as, Mumbai, Gurgaon, Delhi (NCR), Bengaluru, Nagpur, Chennai, Kolkata and Ahmedabad.  

“In 2010 the Indian logistics market was at USD 82.1 billion, with a projected growth of 9% in 2011.   With government investments in infrastructure on the rise coupled with streamlining of regulatory policies, we are enthusiastic about the fast paced growth in the logistics market,” said Paul Graham, Chief Executive Officer – Asia Pacific, DHL Supply Chain. “DHL is strongly committed to investing in markets of growing importance. Looking to 2015 and beyond, India, China and other emerging markets are expected to be the key drivers of growth. With these new warehouses and our continued investment in our people, we are taking another step in the right direction to pursue DHL’s global strategy and support Indian business development,” he added.
 
The 8 new MCS sites of DHL Supply Chain in India have been designed to enhance speed-to-market, with operational processes being optimized to improve efficiency and reduce costs.  Built along DHL global standards, these MCS facilities are designed with best-in-class operational processes which include  loading docks and dock levelers, RFID technology for barcode scanning and fully secured warehouses equipped with CCTV, electronic access controls, intruder alarms and traffic management systems.
 
“By setting up world class infrastructure and improving our existing network of facilities in India, we will be in a strong position to meet the increasing logistics and warehousing needs of corporates in India,  thus enabling us to effectively  tap into this expanding  market,” said Oscar de Bok, Chief Executive Officer – South and South East Asia, DHL Supply Chain.
 
The global environmental protection program GoGreen – run by DHL’s parent company Deutsche Post DHL – is also implemented across the MCS facilities: “All our sites will use green technology like LED lighting and wind assisted ventilation in line with the company’s commitment to improving the carbon efficiency of its own operations and those of its transportation subcontractors by 30 per cent by 2020, compared to 2007 levels’, said Vikas Anand, Chief Operating Officer - India, DHL Supply Chain.
