Godrej Consumer Products Ltd. (GCPL), announced the opening of its first mega warehouse in Tepla, Punjab. With a storage space of 2.4 lakh sq. ft, this state-of-the-art facility will connect the company’s factories in the Northern part of India. The mega warehouse has already established primary routes across the country and will serve the expanding customer base across key states such as Haryana, Punjab, Uttarakhand, and Himachal Pradesh.
A first for GCPL, this mega warehouse is the result of a consolidation of warehouses across Chandigarh, Ambala, and Kundli (Sonipat) into one mega center. The Tepla warehouse can load/unload 90+ trucks and handle more than 80,000 cases per day. Aligned with the company’s commitment to sustainability, it is equipped with automated fire alarm systems, rainwater harvesting drainage, ridge ventilation, and insulation sheets for maintaining desirable temperatures inside the warehouse.
“The inauguration of our mega warehouse in Punjab marks a significant step ahead for GCPL. As a consumer goods company, it is essential for us to consider options that allow easy movement of products from the warehouse to retail outlets, and ultimately to consumers. The Tepla mega warehouse is designed in a manner that it becomes the focal point of our operations in key states across North India while taking into account the company’s commitment to sustainability.”, Pallavi Wad, Head – PSO (India & SAARC), Godrej Consumer Products Ltd (GCPL)
The mega warehouse took nearly a year to complete, from planning to execution, including the construction of required infrastructure, obtaining licenses, digital remapping of distributors, and stock shifting. The facility has more than 75 warehouse associates and supports staff working here. GCPL will ensure stocks from this mega warehouse will reach distributors in Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, and Haryana.
