Delhivery launches all-women hub in Sikar, Rajasthan

Delhivery, a leading logistics service provider, has launched a 100% women-led hub in Sikar, Rajasthan. This initiative follows the success of Delhivery's Moga facility and is part of the company's broader strategy to promote greater female participation in the logistics industry.

The Sikar hub will be fully operated and managed by an all-female staff, representing another milestone in Delhivery's efforts to advance diversity within its workforce. With women already constituting a significant portion of the workforce at other locations, such as Tauru (Haryana) and Bhiwandi (Mumbai), Delhivery aims to replicate this success and establish more all-women hubs across India.

Suraj Saharan, Chief People Officer and Co-founder at Delhivery "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 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,” he further added.

At the Sikar hub, women will oversee all aspects of operations, including administration, security, and logistics functions. Delhivery offers diverse opportunities for women, including roles traditionally perceived as male-dominated, such as driving battery-operated pallet trucks (BOPTs) and loading/unloading trucks.
