Must Read

Delhivery, India’s logistics service provider, has rolled out a 100% women-led hub in Sikar, Rajasthan. The entire operations of the Sikar hub will be managed by an all-female staff. With this move, Delivery’s objective is to promote greater enrollment and empowerment of women in the logistics industry and also expand the diversity within the company.

The company had earlier successfully scaled women’s participation in Tauru (Haryana), Bhiwandi (Mumbai), and other locations in India. Women already constitute 66% of the total workforce at the processing center in Tauru. Following the success of these centers, many more projects are in the pipeline.

Suraj Saharan, Chief People Officer and Co-founder, Delhivery, said, “We are very excited with the launch of this all-women hub at Sikar. In the last one year we have accelerated the recruitment of women in our team, with their headcount increasing by ~60% in FY24 as compared to ~15% in FY23. We are committed to providing a favorable and safe work environment, skills training, and the right HR policies to enable our women colleagues to succeed.”

At Sikar, women will be responsible for all functions, including administration, operations, and security. They will also be provided diversified opportunities in non-traditional roles like driving battery-operated pallet trucks (BOPTs), loading and unloading trucks.
