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.
