Mumbai : May, 25, 2010:
Blue Dart, South Asia's premier number one express air and integrated transportation, distribution and logistics Company, has launched an innovative packaging solution for its domestic customers -Express Pallet (Domestic).
Express Pallet is a unique, weather-resistant, safe, secure and affordable door-to-door packaging solution, ideal for heavier shipments. It is 'built' to accommodate shipments ranging from 30kgs to 100kgs. The design and structure allows the same box to be adjusted into three different sizes with capacities of 50 kgs, 75 kgs and 100 kgs.
Express Pallet is fitted with specially designed in-built wood-free pallet base for smooth and safe transportation via a forklift. The sturdy packaging ensures additional safety of the shipment. The heavy-duty corrugated weather-proof cardboard box is further strapped to provide additional protection.
The Express Pallet is a suitable packaging option for transporting material in most businesses - Banking & Finance, Automotive, Pharmaceuticals, Ready-made garments, Hi-tech etc. It is also a great packaging solution for students who are shifting their base from home to hostel or back and need to carry their baggage along.
The Express Pallet is also very attractively priced. For example, a 50 kg shipment from Mumbai to Delhi would cost Rs. 4340 via Air and Rs. 1700 via Road, a 75 kg shipment would cost Rs 6060 via Air and Rs.2100 via Road, while a 100 kg shipment would cost Rs 7780 via Air and Rs.2500 via Road (all exclusive of applicable fuel surcharge and service tax).
