Safexpress, the 20-year old strong leader in India’s burgeoning supply chain & logistics industry, on August 5, 2017 launched its 32nd ultra-modern Logistics Park in Hyderabad. According to the company sources, spanning over an area of 4,00,000 sq ft, this world-class facility is strategically located close to National Highway 44. This Logistics Park is expected to help in augmenting economic growth in Telangana region, especially at this post-GST era as the Logistics Park to fulfill the warehousing needs of companies located in and around Telangana.
“Hyderabad is one of the largest and most rapidly growing cities of Telangana, and is home to more than 1300 IT and ITEs firms. Over the years, Hyderabad has evolved itself from a traditional manufacturing city to a cosmopolitan business hub. Hyderabad is also a very crucial location from the point of view of logistics connectivity of Southern India with the rest of the country,” underscored Mr Rubal Jain, Managing Director, Safexpress, while speaking at the press conference organised on this occasion. He also emphasised on ‘advantage Hyderabad’ which is vital for accelerating investment decision in this region. “The World Bank Group has ranked Hyderabad as the second best Indian city for doing business. The city and its suburbs contain the highest number of special economic zones among all Indian cities. With the development of Hyderabad Logistics Park, we will be able to further boost our leadership position in the supply chain & logistics industry,” Jain added.
According to the MD, Safexpress, the economy of Hyderabad is based on traditional manufacturing, the knowledge sector, and tourism. He also pointed out the fact that Hyderabad is among the global centers of information technology for which it is known as Cyberabad or HITEC City. In addition, Hyderabad accounts for approximately 20 per cent of India’s total pharma exports.
Significant boost by Safexpress
“Hyderabad has been a global trade center in multiple business domains. However, despite the presence of many medium and large scale industries, Hyderabad does not have adequate warehousing and logistics infrastructure. Safexpress Logistics Park will help in bridging these infrastructure gaps. It will also enable us to provide clients with cutting edge transhipment as well as 3PL services,” asserted Mr Jain. He shared that Safexpress has made a significant investment to set up this ultra-modern logistics infrastructure in Hyderabad with an objective to help the industries in Hyderabad belt and across Telangana in having access to its world-class supply chain & logistics services. “It would contribute heavily in the economic growth of the entire region,” he stressed.
Strengthening Green Logistics
According to Jain, this facility is a perfect mix of environment-friendly initiatives and technology. “We have invested in rainwater harvesting, developed a special green zone and robust IT systems to support operational efficiencies and inventory visibility,” he informed.
Mr Jain also maintained that in the GST era, most companies are adopting newer business and supply chain models. “We at Safexpress, offer our clients with path-breaking innovations alongside customized services. Safexpress is leading the GST revolution and is helping numerous companies in scaling up their business faster than ever. Most companies are now resorting to outsourcing their supply chain & logistics needs to a GST compliant 3PL service provider like Safexpress, while keeping their own warehousing and hub infrastructure to minimal levels. Keeping these factors in mind, we have hugely augmented our 3PL network by creating 32 ultra-modern Logistics Parks spread over 13 million square feet. Hyderabad Logistics Park will be operational 24×7, 365 days in a year to provide time-definite deliveries. Due to our non-stop operations, we will be providing the fastest transit-time for deliveries from Hyderabad to all over India,” he concluded.
