Delhivery Launches All-Women Hub in Sikar, Rajasthan to Drive Diversity in Logistics

Delhivery, India’s largest fully integrated logistics service provider, has rolled out a 100% women-led hub in Sikar, Rajasthan. The entire operations of this Sikar hub will be managed by an all-female staff.

This is another step towards Delhivery’s objective of promoting greater enrollment and empowerment of women in the logistics industry and also advancing overall diversity within the company. The company had earlier successfully scaled women’s participation at its gateways 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 these successes, many more such all-women hubs are in the pipeline.

Suraj Saharan, Chief People Officer and Co-founder at Delhivery, said, “We are very excited with the launch of this all-women hub at Sikar. This is yet another step towards our objective of growing female participation in our industry. Delhivery is proud of what our women colleagues are able to accomplish when given the right platform. They not only have a great impact but also contribute towards lower attrition and absenteeism while directly boosting our efficiency and productivity. 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.

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.”

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