Door deliveries entail cohesive networks and people to perform the entire chain of operations, right up to the customer’s doorstep. Identifying a vacuum for a more predictable, organized and time-definite delivery of documents and packages, Blue Dart commenced operations in 1983. 

Blue Dart, South Asia’s premier courier and integrated express package Distribution Company, positioning, since inception, has been of differentiation. Adhering to this, it introduced a robust cargo airline infrastructure in 1996, and for over a decade, has been the nations’ sole successful freighter operator. Today, it is an irreplaceable part of the supply chain for key market players like DELL, Citibank, HSBC, Nokia, and HCL etc.

Aircraft Fleet

Blue Dart operates six freighters (Boeing 757), supported by sophisticated security systems and x-ray machines. The airline meets the intensive maintenance rigours and has a ‘lean and mean’ maintenance team that can conduct up to ‘D’ level check. It is equipped with a structure repair shop, wheels and brake shop, avionics and radio labs with highly qualified technicians and engineers. 

Safety Records

Blue Dart has maintained excellent safety standards over the years with nil accident on record since 1997. Frequent Audits and transparency amongst the departments is the key to this aspect

Recent Developments

Blue Dart inducted two Boeing 757 in June 2006 and increased its capacity from 166 to 300 tonnes per night to service the growing demand. Its charter capabilities within the country have also been fortified. The route network was extended to 60 with the addition of 21 route connections to the earlier 39. To further strengthen its air infrastructure, an aviation hub at Ahmedabad, and an outbound gateway in Hyderabad were also connected in June 2006.

Blue Dart’s quality and services have been authenticated repeatedly with its selection as a Superbrand in 2004, 2005 and 2006-07. It was awarded the Brand Leadership Award at the Indian Brand Summit in 2003 and was conferred the Reader’s Digest’s Most Trusted Brand Gold Award in 2006.
