Allcargo Gati (formerly GATI), one of India’s leading express distribution and supply chain management company, has launched a state-of-the-art and tech-enabled surface transhipment centre and distribution warehouse (STCDW) at Mayasandra, Hobli, on the outskirts of Bengaluru, Karnataka.

"Located 5.5 kms away from NH 44 (Bengaluru-Hosur Highway) at the border of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka, the STCDW is spread over 3.5 lakh sq. ft. and it has a 1.5 lakh sq. ft. Grade A warehouse. An upcoming Hosur outer Ring Road is just 1.5 Km away from the STCDW, offering superior accessibility and connectivity. Because of the proximity to railway and international airport, the advantage significantly reduces transit time and enables businesses to deliver products faster to their customers. Mayasandra STCDW is the fifth super hub launched by Gati," says an official release.

Mayasandra STCDW has 70 truck bays for managing more than 500 vehicles per day, the release added. "The STCDW is equipped to deliver daily throughput of 1,600 tonnes and monthly throughput of 40,000 tonnes. STCDW will cater to multiple industries including automotive, apparel, heavy engineering and retail."

Phil Sarkari, MD and CEO, Gati Express and Supply Chain says: “We are pleased to launch the multi-user STCDW at Mayasandra which offers massive cargo handling capacity and superior connectivity due to its strategic locational advantages. The tech-enabled STCDW will pave the way for greater customer centricity at Bengaluru, the Silicon Valley of India and a key consumption centre of the country. With advanced infrastructure, ramped up cargo processing capacity and environmentally sustainable initiatives, the STCDW will strengthen our position in the express logistics space. In the next phase of infrastructure development, we are in the process of setting up STCDWs with Grade A warehousing facilities across India."

Gati has set up STCDWs in Farukhnagar (Gurugram), Nagpur, Guwahati, and most recently in Bhiwandi (Mumbai). As part of Gati’s ESG initiatives, Gati aims to convert its entire pickup and delivery fleet of more than 2,500 vehicles into alternative fuel vehicles by 2025, the release added.
