Godrej Consumer Products Ltd opens first mega warehouse in Punjab, strengthens supply chain across North India

Godrej Consumer Products Ltd. (GCPL), a leading emerging markets company that is a part of the Godrej Group, announced the opening of its first mega warehouse in Tepla, Punjab. This state-of-the-art facility has a storage space of 2.4 lakh sq. ft. and 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.

This is GCPL’s first mega warehouse and is the result of a consolidation of warehouses across Chandigarh, Ambala, and Kundli (Sonipat) into one mega centre. The Tepla warehouse has the capacity to load/unload 90+ trucks and handle more than 80,000 cases per day. In alignment 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.
