Pet food and nutrition provider Drools India recently announced the opening of the largest cost net freight (CNF) warehouse in the pet food category in Bhiwandi, Maharastra, India. The top-notch facility has a storage space of 70,000 sq.ft. enabling faster supply chain management and quality control. This means that Drools will be able to move out 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.

“The inauguration of the largest CNF warehouse in this industry marks a significant step ahead for Drools. We are excited to unveil this new state-of-the-art warehouse, which will significantly improve our supply chain and customer experience. It will provide a direct upgrade to 2500+ retail outlets, pet stores and shops.

It further will be able to load and unload 5 vehicles at once, reducing billing and delivery time to just 48 hours.

This new facility marks the 7th warehouse in the state and the 38th in India. The facility has more than 50 warehouse associates and support staff working here.  Export led growth has been a dominant paradigm for Drools and the company has seen exponential growth in the last decade.
