India’s largest supply chain and logistics company, Safexpress on Wednesday launched an ultra-modern logistics park at Rudrapur in Uttarakhand, strategically located on National Highway 109. With this, Safexpress now owns and operates a chain of 54 logistics parks across the country.
The state-of-the-art facility is spread over 1 lakh sq ft and enabled with best-in-class logistics infrastructure for transhipment and 3PL operations. The facility was jointly inaugurated by the company’s Vice President SK Jain, Regional Manager Piyush Jain and Area Manager Mohit Rai.
Being one of the largest industrial hubs of Uttrakhand, Rudrapur is home to several well-known brands that have their manufacturing plants located in the region. The Safexpress logistics park will serve as a nodal point for supply chain and logistics requirements in the region and will boost industrial growth by minimising the infrastructure gaps.
The Rudrapur logistics park enables loading and unloading of over 100 vehicles simultaneously and has a columnless span of over 80 feet, ensuring smooth and uninterrupted movement of goods and the fastest transit time from Rudrapur to over 1,131 destinations across India. Safexpress has developed robust IT systems to increase operational efficiencies and gain total inventory visibility—from the facility to the store shelf.
To enable all-weather loading and unloading of goods, the logistics park is equipped with 16 feet wide Cantilever Shed, as well as state-of-the-art firefighting equipment and trained manpower to adequately deal with any emergency.
Safexpress has also taken special environment-friendly initiatives at the facility by investing in a rainwater harvesting system, developing a special green zone, and using natural sunlight during the daytime to conserve energy.
