DHL invests in the Smart City of Indore
DHL, the world’s leading international express services provider, has invested in the industrial hub of Madhya Pradesh as it opens its first facility in Indore. This service center will cater to Indore and its nearby towns such as Dewas and Pithampur - a major Special Economic Zone (SEZ) and one of the largest hubs for the manufacturing industry in the country.
The facility was inaugurated by RS Subramanian, Senior Vice President & Country Manager, DHL Express India along with Dinesh Patidar, Chairman, Shakti Pumps India Pvt Ltd.
The service center is in the heart of the city and close to the airport. Covering an approximate radius of 15km, this will reduce the transit time for the import and export of shipments.
