Global logistics provider, DHL Express, has expanded its gateway facility in New Delhi to handle 10 million shipments per annum and double exports from India.
The company has committed of over Rs 100 crore for the facility that will handle 60 per cent more imports and is by far the largest capacity for the company in India.
The expansion is aimed at clearing shipments at a faster pace from North and East India to global markets.
RS Subramanian, Senior VP and Country Manager, DHL Express, told PTI, "In terms of this gateway, going forward, we have a commitment of about Rs 100 crore including CapEx and operational expenses for the facility."
The company said that with the new gateway, export clearance capacity will increase by 100 per cent and imports by 60 per cent.
Ken Lee, CEO, Asia Pacific, DHL Express, said, "The global CEO has made a commitment of 250 million euros to India by 2020 across business units, which shows there is a significant focus on infrastructure."
The company already has a gateway in Delhi but it is short of required processing capacity as there is higher demand.
Subramanian said, "We are present in more countries than Coke and Pepsi are present and that's the kind of network we run."
