Safexpress gets logistics park in Amritsar
The ultra-modern logistics park that has been unveiled in Amritsar will help drive industrial growth in the Punjab region and will be an important supply chain and logistics centre.
Safexpress has launched its ultramodern logistics park at Amritsar. The development of the facility has been initiated on a land area of 25,000 square feet. The establishment of the park aims to drive the economic growth in Punjab. Vineet Kanaujia, Vice President – Marketing, Safexpress, said, “Amritsar is an important centre for textile and chemical industries and also engages in food milling and processing, silk weaving, tanning, canning, and the manufacture of machinery. A prominent feature of the industrial scenario of Punjab is its small-sized industrial units. The city of Amritsar holds a place of prominence in India in the production of woollen fabrics, like worsted, tweeds, blankets, shawls, etc. Despite the presence of many medium and large scale industries, Amritsar does not have adequate warehousing and logistics infrastructure. Safexpress Logistics Park at Amritsar will help in bridging the infrastructure gaps and serve the supply chain and logistics requirements of the entire region.”
He further highlighted, “We have made a significant investment to set up this ultra-modern logistics infrastructure. This will help the industries in the Amritsar belt in having access to our world-class supply chain and logistics services, which would contribute heavily in the economic growth of this entire region.” Kanaujia said, “We have taken special environmentfriendly initiatives at the Logistics Park by investing in rainwater harvesting, developing a special green zone and using natural sunlight during the daytime to conserve energy. Our park is strategically located close to NH 1. The operations are highly streamlined, ensuring the country’s fastest transit time from Amritsar to over 620 destinations across India. The dedicated bays and docks provide an uninterrupted and unidirectional flow of inbound and outbound goods.”
“For the last decade, Safexpress has been driving a 3PL revolution in the country in anticipation of GST. Our park is the 31st Logistics Park launched by our firm in the country. It will be operational 24x7, 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 Amritsar to all over India,” he concluded.
