India’s logistics services provider Blue Dart, which is part of Deutsche Post DHL Group, has revealed plans to deliver to all Indian homes by December of this year. The company currently distributes to 17,677+ pin codes but aims to expand this to all 19,100+ pin codes by the end of the year.
The expansion follows rising demand for deliveries in tier II, III & IV towns in India. The initiative was first launched in January of this year with the company initially distributing to 6,164 pin codes. Blue Dart has achieved 100% pin code coverage in 16 states and union territories which includes Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Delhi, Punjab, Goa, Telangana, Gujarat, Jharkhand, West Bengal, Pondicherry, Daman & Diu, Chandigarh and Dadra & Nagar Haveli.
Anil Khanna, managing Director of Blue Dart Express Limited, said the company was intent on extending its reach. “As India’s leading logistics company, we are committed to delivering only the best for our customers. We are aggressively expanding our network to reach every Indian home by December 2018 to enable fast, efficient and reliable deliveries for both B2B and B2C customers,” he said.
As part of the expansion, Blue Dart has opened over 939+ new facilities (called NBDO – New Blue Dart Offices) to cater to the large consumer base in rural and remote locations.
