BackgroundEdit

Blue Dart was founded by Tushar Jani (chairman) and his friends Khushroo Dubash and Clyde Cooper in November 1983.[9][10] In the early years, Blue Dart had a business agreement with Gelco Express International, UK, for the operations of international air package express services from India.[11]

In 2010-11, it introduced ′cash on delivery (pod)′ to customers, as an additional payment option for its courier services. Khushroo Dubash initiated studies on a "Hub and Spoke" concept for the company's distribution networking.[12]
