As India takes forward steps to ensure the ease of doing business by launching the much awaited and much applauded National Logistics Policy, it’s up to various logistics entities to propel the move to making India a USD 5 trillion economy. Allcargo Logistics, India’s own homegrown global logistics conglomerate has been making it easier for enterprises to do business by offering end-to-end, integrated services across the complete spectrum of logistics in India, and multimodal cargo movements in 180 countries across the world. Adding another feather to its cap is the recently commemorated, state-of-the-art logistics park in Malur Karnataka.
The logistics park is already accelerating economic growth and infrastructure development in Karnataka, enabling the state to become a logistics hub that seamlessly connects India to the southern states of Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu, making it a desired destination for big businesses.
The preferred choice for businesses
Strategically located along the Bengaluru-Chennai economic corridor, the logistics park is especially beneficial for the many e-commerce players, engineering and auto-ancillary industries, and manufacturing and logistics entities that populate the area.
The park has already witnessed solid demand from e-commerce and quick commerce players such as Amazon, Flipkart and French sporting goods giant, Decathlon. Decathlon has taken up 900,000 square feet of space, while Flipkart has taken over 500,000 square feet, and Amazon has taken up 300,000 square feet in the logistics park.
Having launched similar facilities simultaneously in the NCR region and in Hyderabad, this facility was developed in record time in a build-to-suit model, as per the requirements of the different businesses.
The world-class facility has been constructed as per international benchmarks of quality, safety, and sustainability standards in construction. The 100-acre park spread over two million square feet, the built-to-suit facilities that incorporate emerging technologies like Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, further provide impetus to sustainable warehousing in the state. The park has immense potential to bring in enhanced efficiencies and productivity in logistics through digitalization, augmented warehousing capacity and robust physical infrastructure.
From an environment perspective, it is also an IGBC Platinum certified building – the first warehouse in Karnataka to be certified for its sustainable practice of water conservation and use of solar power.
Asset par excellence
Moreover, the logistics park is also creating employment opportunities directly on-site, by creating over 5000 jobs.
The logistics park was commemorated on 3rd October 2022, in the presence of various state dignitaries such as a Member of Parliament, a Member of Legislative Assembly and Members of the Legislative Council, Indian Administrative Service officers, a senior police official, and industry leaders. In his address at the event, Allcargo Group Founder and Chairman, Mr. Shashi Kiran Shetty, dedicated this park to the various customers for whom this park has been made: “At Allcargo Group, we believe in the potential of India, its aspirational young workforce, the traditions and culture in which we all are brought up. Our ethos is to build world-class businesses. We are very proud to dedicate this world-class facility to our valued customers who stood by us during the COVID-19 pandemic, by signing on and by believing in our assurance that we will achieve all clearances required for operating this facility. Today, we are so happy that we delivered all that, and more”
The excellent state-of-the-art logistics park is already unleashing value for businesses and will further accelerate economic growth and infrastructure development in Karnataka. It is also an important milestone in Allcargo Group’s ambitious plan to expand its nationwide warehousing footprint and build more such facilities across India.
