Domestic express logistics major Blue Dart, part of Deutsche Post DHL Group (DPDHL), is eyeing to establish its presence in over 19,000 pin codes by December 2018. The move is in response to rising B2C and B2B demand from tier 2 and tier 3 locations in the country. The company had set afoot an initiative early this year to pursue the pin code expansion objective and today is reaching out to customers in over 17,000 pin codes.
According to a company release, by the end of this month, Blue Dart will achieve 100% pin code coverage in 16 states and union territories which includes Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Delhi, Punjab, Goa, Telangana, Gujarat, Jharkhand, West Bengal, Pondicherry, Daman & Diu, Chandigarh and Dadra & Nagar Haveli. Anil Khanna, Managing Director, Blue Dart said, “We are aggressively expanding our network to reach every Indian home by December 2018 to enable fast, efficient and reliable deliveries for both B2B and B2C customers. We are well on our way to cover all pin codes in India, with already 17,677+ pin codes and 100% pin code coverage in 16 states and union territories.“.
