The 136,000-square-foot facility, located in Attibele in South Bengaluru, was built to meet the growing customer demands of various sectors from this region, and to provide them with a competitive edge and better value.
According to the Bangalore Times, Levis Strauss VP of global distribution Richard Kuether said, “Having worked closely with DHL Supply Chain over the past five years, we are pleased to see our operations move into their new multi-client centre as it supports our ambitious growth plans in India, over the next few years. We see tremendous potential for expansion of our product range and its essential to partner with a supply chain specialist who can offer us innovative solutions which help us with faster delivery and reliability.”
The building was built following international standards, with a height of 12 meters, 11 loading bays and modern energy saving devices equipped with security features to ensure end-to-end supply chain services.
Managing director at DHL Supply Chain India, Vikas Anand said, “In 2012 DHL Supply Chain had announced an investment of € 100 million [$125 million] to strengthen logistics infrastructure in India. With a sound focused approach and a consistent strategy, the company has been steadily investing in facilities across the country. Bengaluru is the fourth largest multi-client site to be inaugurated, with similar facilities having commenced operations at Mumbai, Pune and Gurgaon. Plans are on track for three more multi-client sites to be constructed at Chennai, Kolkata and Ahmedabad, which will be operational in 2015.”
