Blue Dart Expands Network In Kerala
M/s S. K. Associates and Blue Dart Express Limited, India's largest integrated air express and logistics company, have signed up an agreement today to offer value-added services catering to the special requirements of the Khozikode region in Kerala.
Malappuram is a town located about 65 km from Khozikode. With a majority of its people employed in the Gulf, travel business has seen an upsurge. Much of the packages will therefore comprise travel-related documents. Ayurveda Vaidyashata, providing traditional treatment and medicines, is another significant activity of this town in Kerala. It has a considerable following globally and attracts a floating tourist population. Shipments of both medicines and documents have become routine and reasonably attractive to bring in the organised sector of the courier industry. Having entered a strategic tie-up with M/s S. K. Associates, Blue Dart will now be able to offer its complete range of services to this segment.
Commenting on the alliance, Gopi Menon, Senior Vice President (South), Blue Dart Express Limited said, "M/s S. K. Associates has a good track record and, with its support, we would now service new businesses operating in these regions. Our new partner has a wealth of experience in the local express business and we look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship."
Pioneering the concept of Regional Service Participants (RSPs), Blue Dart today extends its support to the economic activity by providing services to locations across regions otherwise considered remote.
Increasing RSP arrangements across the country has lead to rapid expansion for Blue Dart, which has consolidated its already dominant position. Blue Dart currently has a 38% share in the domestic market, and its continuous commitment towards understanding the needs and concerns of the customer has enabled it to provide unmatched standards of service quality with over 99.95% reliability levels in the express industry. Over the years Blue Dart has continuously pioneered and established itself as an industry leader. Blue Dart is one of the largest Global Service Participants of FedEx, the world's largest air express transportation company.
