History[edit]

Blue Dart was founded by Tushar Jani (chairman) and his friends Khushroo Dubash and Clyde Cooper in November 1983.[11][12] In its early years, Blue Dart had a business agreement with Gelco Express International, UK, for the operations of international air package express services from India.[13]

In 2010–11, it introduced ′cash on delivery (COD)′ to its 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.[14]
