D2C logistics aggregator Shiprocket launched its own fulfilment centres across four cities including Bengaluru, Delhi NCR, Mumbai and Kolkata. They plan to expand the network across 15 locations in the coming year.
The startup claims these warehouses will help it be on par with ecommerce giants like Amazon and Flipkart, who deliver in three days. At least 70% of the D2C orders usually take five days to reach customers.
Shiprocket Fulfillment (SRF) offers end-to-end warehousing and fulfilment solutions to D2C sellers and brands selling through various channels including e-commerce platforms, social media and their brand websites, according to a statement.
The goods are stored at Shiprocket’s fulfilment centres and will be delivered within or less than 48 hours once the order is placed, the company claims.
As of now, the company delivers packages to over 25 million customers annually and has witnessed a three-fold growth year on year.
Launched in 2016 by Goel and Gautam Kapoor, today, Shiprocket has on boarded 1.5 lakh sellers in the country.
