"This state-of-the-art facility has a storage space of 70,000 sq. ft. enabling faster supply chain management and quality control. The warehouse will revolutionise the way Drools serves its customers by sharing fresher inventory straight out of their manufacturing unit. It has already established primary routes across the state and will serve the expanding customer base across key cities such as Mumbai, Nashik and Thane," says an official release.

The warehouse features advanced technology and equipment that will streamline the loading and unloading process, reducing the time it takes to unload an 18-MT vehicle to just three hours and to load an LCV in just one hour. It further will be able to load and unload five vehicles at once, reducing billing and delivery time to just 48 hours, the release said.

“The inauguration of the largest CNF warehouse in this industry marks a significant step ahead for Drools," says Shashank Sinha, CEO, Drools.
