The women operating across three shifts reside within a 6–9 km radius of the facility and are well supported through the reliable transportation connectivity provided by the company.

Delhivery has transformed its facility in Punjab’s Moga into an all-woman-run hub, the leading integrated logistics service provider said in a press release on Friday.

The company plans to establish similar types of all-women-run facilities in other regions of the country, including Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan.

With the new announcement, end-to-end hub operations will be orchestrated by an all-women workforce, including BOPT operations (battery-operated pallet trucks), inventory management, and loading and unloading of trucks.

Women-only housekeeping and security staff have also been deployed to support the facility 24×7. The young women recruits aged 18–30 have undergone focused training on processes, shipment handling, and key metrics, the company said.

“Before Delhivery, our new joiners at Moga were working in unorganized set-ups. Their transition to the formal logistics sector ensures a steady income and makes them eligible for social security benefits such as PF and ESIC,” said Suraj Saharan, Chief People Officer and Co-Founder at Delhivery.

“Punjab is an enterprising state, and its women, too, are highly self-motivated and aspirational. Through our interactions with the female staff, we were pleased to know that they harbour big growth ambitions. They are at the right place—the growth opportunities at Delhivery are endless,” he added.

Saharan said, “We value diversity and are continuously striving to onboard more women colleagues across operations and corporate roles. Our women’s workforce strength has grown five times over the past three years across all our operations facilities.”

The women operating across three shifts reside within a 6–9 km radius of the facility and are well supported through the reliable transportation connectivity provided by the company.

“We are determined to enable them to achieve their professional and personal milestones through our training and mentorship programs in a safe, inclusive work culture,” he added.

“Delhivery has achieved significant milestones in inclusivity and diversity in recent years, such as a 90% participation ratio at the Tauru Mega Gateway in Haryana and a 100% women participation ratio at the Jaipur Gateway.”
