DHL Global Forwarding has opened a new logistics services facility in the Special Economic Zone (SEZ) near Chennai.
An international provider of air, sea and road freight services, DHL Global Forwarding is a division of DeutschePost DHL Group,
Located in Swarnbhoomi between Chennai and Puducherry, the site developed by the New Chennai Township Pvt Ltd is close to the electronics, automotive and IT hub.
According to a press release, currently occupying 33,500 sq ft with the option for further expansion, DHL Global Forwarding’s SEZ logistics services facility will eliminate a leg of transportation between the customer’s factory and the destination market, leading to considerable savings in distribution costs for customers.
“Customised value-added services such as packaging, labelling, embossing, sorting, inspection, strapping, kitting and assembly of complete and semi-knocked-down kits will be offered at the site. Flexible storage options and single window customs clearance will also ensure streamlined and quicker processing of the stored cargo,” it added.
The release also stated that manufacturers will benefit from the availability of consolidation at the new facility for export on behalf of overseas buyers and easy re-export options, while importers stand to gain the benefit of just-in-time supply and duty deferment.
