DHL Express has strengthened its network in the Delhi-NCR region with the expansion of the Faridabad service centre. Inaugurated by John Pearson, CEO, DHL Express, this is DHL Express India’s eighth service centre in Delhi/NCR region and 53rd in the country.
The sustained expansion is in line with the company’s commitment of EUR 250 million towards infrastructure development across the country.
DHL Express has been serving customers in Faridabad since 2014. The company has now expanded its Faridabad service centre into a 9000-square-foot facility to meet the significant trade volume growth in the last five years. This augments DHL Express’ current service offering to customers, as it meets the growing export and import demands.
Faridabad is India’s rapidly growing industrial area with close proximity to the international airport, making it a strategic investment for DHL Express. The investment is part of DHL Express’ commitment towards upgrading infrastructure in tier-two markets. The expansion will support the growing business from the automobile industry, garment exporters, banks and other B2C customers in the region.
“Even in these volatile times, our well-connected global network, focus on infrastructure, and dedicated people have paved the way for our growth. Our recently released DHL Trade Growth Atlas tells us that India is on track to more than double its trade volume growth rate in the next five years, and we are uniquely positioned to support this because of our unrivalled expertise. Investments like these in the country will allow us to provide best-in-class service to our customers and make us a reliable partner.”
~ John Pearson, CEO of DHL Express
“We are committed to supporting India’s economic growth and facilitating international trade. To meet this commitment, we have invested heavily in people, processes, and infrastructure across the country in recent years. The Faridabad service center expansion is part of the growth strategy. The region has seen a 70% increase in shipment volume over the last three years, necessitating infrastructure expansion to meet rising demand. We will continue to focus on being a key trade facilitator for businesses, making it easy for them to do business globally.”
