Joining the 'Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav' initiative, Blue Dart, South Asia's premier express air and integrated transportation & distribution company will be strengthening its presence by introducing 15 new retail stores across the country. The stores will be launched on 15th August and they will be located in Odisha, Assam, Haryana, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Gujarat, and Madhya Pradesh.
The new stores will widen Blue Dart's presence in tier I & II markets in India. The expansion will act as an advantage for customers enabling Blue Dart to cater to 55,000 plus locations. With around 700 retail stores(with DHL) across India, Blue Dart offers the most reliable, resilient, and responsive service providing a quick turnaround time and an enhanced direct reach to pin-codes in the country.

Integrating with the 'Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav' and the 'Har Ghar Tiranga' campaign, Blue Dart has planned multiple activities which will be executed at all stores. On the occasion of India's 75th independence, 75,000 flags will be distributed at all Blue Dart stores in the country.

Blue Dart was reportedly among the first to set a quantified carbon-efficiency target. In 2011, Blue Dart was the first in the country to launch an end-to-end GoGreen Carbon Neutral Service, on all its products; domestically and internationally. To add to this achievement, this year on World Environment Day, 5th, June 2022, Blue Dart also signed the Climate Neutral Now pledge, an initiative by the UNFCCC toward achieving a climate-neutral future.
