Mr Ashok Goyal, MD, BLR Logistiks, announced with pride recently that subsequent to its 14-acre logistics park at Panvel, the company’s bond warehouse operations at Bhiwandi-Thane, Maharashtra has Gone Live.

A release stressed that the facility would be a GAME CHANGER for importers and the e-commerce market place, especially given the current Covid-19 situation where business is majorly being operated remotely. The digital world needs logistics support in real time, it stressed.

  • Reducing supply chain lead time
  • Formulating last mile sales strategy in real time, the same day
  • Generating sales invoice and sending products directly from BLR adjoining fulfillment centre on JIT basis to reduce multiple storage cost
