February 23, 2021: Gati-KWE, the express logistics firm and an Allcargo Group company, has announced that it will launch its largest surface transhipment centre (STC) in Delhi, in June this year which is spread over a 1.5 lakh sq ft area.

Gati-Kintetsu Express (Gati-KWE) is a joint venture between Gati and Japan's Kintetsu World Express that provides express distribution service and supply chain solutions in India.

To build the facility, Gati-KWE has taken up space at Allcargo Logistics’ 1.8 million sq ft logistics park at Farukh Nagar. "Located on Western Peripheral Expressway in Delhi, the tech-enabled STC will offer superior transit time, accuracy in cargo delivery and high locational advantage of access to all major National Highways," says the release.

The company has plans to come up with four more STCs shortly.

Apart from consolidating Gati-KWE’s logistics operations on the outskirts to decongest the city, the STC adheres to the green belt requirement.

Short-haul, long-haul connectivity
Bala Aghoramurthy, deputy managing director, Gati, said, “We are setting up our largest STC in Delhi because the region has been witnessing robust economic growth. The STC will have the capability to process and transport a massive volume of cargo thanks to the technology integration in the operations and time-defined short-haul and long-haul connectivity."

The facility has been designed to process cargo loads of almost 100 trucks a day. Thanks to the tech-enabled, automated and paperless process, there will be a significant reduction in dwell time including the time taken for loading, unloading and moving cargo to the final destinations.

Vehicle tracking system
The tech-powered and artificial intelligence-driven round-the-clock vehicle tracking system at the STC will offer real-time updates and forecasting to facilitate informed, real-time decisions for unloading and sorting of cargo. The technology backbone also uses deep analytics which guides trucks to take the best possible routes while entering the facility as well as leaving the premises for completing deliveries to the final destinations.

Facilities
The express logistics facility also offers a user-friendly online interface through which Gati-KWE’s express logistics customers can raise queries and get regular updates on the movement of their consignments. The STC is equipped with multimodal transportation, catering to customers across industries. It is also equipped with all the essential amenities for truck drivers like washrooms, rest areas and cafeterias and residential facilities.
