Unveiling the latest distruptor in the India market – SmarTrucking, was a milestone not just for Deutsche Post DHL Group (DPDHL) but also for Malcolm
Monteiro, CEO, DHL eCommerce India. Government has stepped up in terms of regulations, investments, and the logistics department under the Ministry of Commerce has more focus and given it an infrastructure status, states Monteiro. DPDHL will start with 10,000 smart trucks over the next decade. Technology can actually bring the inventory cost down. Quality trucks on the road mean reliable service. Skilling is required for truck drivers. The service will enable fastest transit time for the customer. Tier II and Tier III cities in India are growing faster than the metros.
