Faridabad is India’s rapidly growing industrial area with close proximity to the international airport, making it a strategic investment for DHL Express. The investment is part of DHL Express’ commitment towards upgrading infrastructure in tier-two markets. The expansion will support the growing business from automobile industry, garment exporters, banks and other B2C customers in the region.
John Pearson, CEO of DHL Express, commented on the expansion: “Even in these volatile times, our well-connected global network, focus on infrastructure, and dedicated people have paved the way for our growth.
