Ten years ago, no one was able to recognise the potential of warehousing in India. Today, logistics cost contributes 13-17 per cent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in India and Warehousing contribute approximately 25 per cent of logistics cost. The explosive growth of retail markets and the E-commerce industry, the emergence of international players, a renewed focus on manufacturing led by the government’s “Make in India” campaign and the impending implementation of GST in the country – are driving a paradigm shift in the industrial, light manufacturing and warehousing sector.
Embassy is committed to bringing quality Grade A industrial, light manufacturing and warehousing spaces in close proximity to leading consumer and industrial clusters across India.

Having realized the potential of the selected consultants and architects for this business they have given them a free hand at:
- Bringing to the table their innovation and creativity at the core while envisaging and designing the

The first & foremost relevant agenda on board was to secure land positions which allowed expandability & flexibility for our customers. Embassy Industrial Parks is a highly customer centric service company, so this was very essential to us. Today we can buy land & construct anywhere in the country at a pace 30 % percent faster than the market. Making tenants aware about the benefit of ‘’A’’ grade warehouses was taken as one of the key initiative. Also, among other challenges, was to understand the government policies for various processes of statutory approvals to funnel down to single window clearance, it was envisaged and successfully done for our project locations. As the expectations in the market are increasing day by day, the challenge also remains to keep the project at cost and rent as per market dominated by local/unorganised player. It needed strong persuasion and marketing strategy.
