When a 3PL logistics company thinks of building a warehouse in India, they have to look at various factors from being an excellent connected location to having surplus manpower, as these two are main important factors to start a warehouse. 20 Cube logistics has many warehouses across India, and all of them at the best locations from Gurugram to Chennai.
In this article, we are going to talk about choosing Bhiwandi as the warehouse location. Bhiwadi, a populace area, located on the outskirts of Mumbai is touted as one of the best warehousing locations. In the last few years, it has become a warehousing and distribution centre hot-spot for some of the popular ecommerce majors like Amazon, Myntra, Peppefry etc., due to its close proximity to JNP and International Airport of Mumbai. Let’s look at the reasons why 20Cube chose to have a warehouses in Bhiwandi:
Strategic location & connectivity: As Bhiwandi is located at the border of Maharashtra and Gujarat on the Mumbai-Nashik Highway, it enjoys several location advantages. Another good thing about Bhiwandi is that it is closer to the international airport and major ports which offer seamless movement of goods. Besides that, the public transport provided by the State Transport and Navi Mumbai Municipal Transport is remarkable.
Availability of manpower and talent pool: There is a abundance of manpower that is skilled as well as unskilled in Bhiwandi and neighbouring areas. This helps to get labourers easy for jobs that are urgent and require proactive delivery.
Space to expand: Sometimes due to some unforeseen reasons, an expansion is required and Bhiwandi provides enough space to make operations easy. There is enough space to stall the fleet of trucks in a large open space.
Easy availability of resources: As Bhiwandi is becoming a hub for top companies for its warehouse requirement, many construction companies are cropping up to provide raw materials for construction of shed and industries, so transporting of raw material to construct a warehouse is reduced to a minimum. With a warehouse in Bhiwandi, 20Cube has easy access to labour, and with rail and road connectivity; consignments can be easily transported from warehouse to port or any other destination as needed. Bhiwandi, being closer to the commercial capital of India, Mumbai is an added advantage which works in its favour.
