“DHL Ex­press has been ser­vic­ing SMEs across In­dia, in­clud­ing Udaipur for over 35 years now. Over the years, the pace of glob­al­i­sa­tion and its ef­fects on SMEs and en­trepreneur­ship has evolved. We see that there is a strong cor­re­la­tion be­tween im­proved business per­for­mance and cross-bor­der trade sug­gest­ing that there is a clear ben­e­fit for SMEs in go­ing global. In In­dia, lo­gis­tics costs ac­count to 1213 per cent of business cost, com­pared to six- seven per cent glob­ally. By pro­vid­ing ef­fi­ciency in this area, DHL can support SMEs in be­ing even more com­pet­i­tive in the global vil­lage,” said RS

SME units in In­dia to­day em­ploy 60 mil­lion peo­ple and gen­er­ate 1.3 mil­lion jobs each year. This is the vi­tal role that SMEs and en­trepreneur­ship play in the growth and de­vel­op­ment of the In­dian econ­omy. We want to make the process of trade more ef­fi­cient and will con­tinue to tai­lor our ser­vices and so­lu­tions to help SMEs grow and com­pete in the global vil­lage,” said San­deep Juneja, Vi­cePres­i­dent, Com­mer­cial, DHL Ex­press In­dia.
