DHL Express, the world’s leading international express services provider, has launched its service centre in Rajkot. This is its fourth service centre in Gujarat, further enhancing the company’s network capabilities in the state. Located in the Saurashtra region, the 2,518 sq. ft facility, which will support the growing demand for international express services in Gujarat, was inaugurated by Mr R. S. Subramanian, Country Manager, DHL Express India and Mr P. G. Jadeja (CMD, Jyoti CNC Automation Ltd, Rajkot).
Speaking on the occasion, Mr Subramanian said: “Setting up our service centre in Rajkot is a significant step towards strengthening our network capabilities in order to support our customers’ growing business needs. With Rajkot set to become one of the largest automobile zones in Asia, and exports from Jamnagar and Morbi on the rise, the opening of this facility reinforces our commitment to connect Gujarat to the global market.”
The new service centre will help customers with an extended cut-off time by an hour, thus ensuring that majority of the shipments are connected and despatched from Rajkot, Jamnagar and Morbi on the same day. Export customers will benefit by the routing of export express clearance shipments through Ahmedabad, thereby leading to a large volume of shipments getting cleared and forwarded for connection on the same day. Import customers will benefit through minimal coordination and deliveries being attempted on the same day of arrival. Overall, customers will benefit through better handling of shipments and improved transit time performance.
