Strategic Location

Gk Power is head quartered in Nagpur. Nagpur popularly known, as Orange city of India is also known as the second capital of Maharashtra. It is the third largest city by population, of Maharashtra. The city is located in the north eastern part of Maharashtra and India's geometrical centre, the "zero mile" lies within the city.

Proximity to Mumbai, the commercial capital of the country, has made Nagpur a favorite destination for commercial activities. Nagpur airport is set to become the country's first national air cargo hub. MIHAN - Multi-modal International Cargo Hub and Airport at Nagpur is the biggest economical development project currently underway in India in terms of investment and spread over an area of 4354 Hectares.

Nagpur is very well connected with major cities in India. It is equidistant from all major metros like Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai and Kolkata located apart by approx 1000km and is within 24hours reach by rail or road. The major highway NH-6 connecting to Mumbai-Kolkata and NH-7 connecting to Delhi -Hyderabad passes through the city. The east-west and north-south corridor of golden quadrilateral also passes through the city making it directly accessible to virtually every city in India. There are international flights from Nagpur to UK and USA and domestic flights connect directly to major cities like Mumbai, Kolkata, Delhi, Hyderabad, Goa, Indore and Bangalore.

In future with elimination of central sales tax (CST), most companies would prefer to consolidate number of warehouses in India. Major industries like apparel, 3PL, consumer durables and auto spares would want to set up national distribution center (NDC) close to India’s geometric centre for serving entire India. Other industries like retail, FMCG and pharmaceutical will have demand for regional distribution centre (RDC) to serve local markets. Nagpur becomes obvious choice for serving local markets or entire India due to its strategic location. This would lead to growing logistics activity in Nagpur and the city will emerge as the country's most important logistics centre.
