Lookup, a messaging app connecting local merchants with customers, has launched deliveries across Bangalore, Mumbai and Delhi in association with Roadrunnr. With this association, any store keeper who wishes to provide deliveries can now do so when they get an order through Lookup, the company said in a press release.
Lookup enables customers to message local shops, restaurants, hotels, and retail outlets to make reservations, ask questions, or make purchases.
“Logistics has time criticality and optimum routing challenges and this can be solved only through an approach augmented with excellent operational skills. By partnering with Roadrunnr, we can enhance our technology platform, expand nationally and build a dense delivery network that will benefit all our retailers and customers with quick access to everything,” says Deepak Ravindran, CEO of Lookup.
There is no minimum order and users can order anything from their local stores ranging from food, groceries, medicines, electronics and much more. The link for tracking the delivery will also be sent in chat.
Roadrunnr is a Bangalore-based startup which caters to merchants, restaurants and e-commerce companies in managing their deliveries and now plans to take this model across India and develop the largest fleet of on demand hyperlocal delivery carriers in the country.
“We see Lookup as a serious player in the hyperlocal e-commerce space. Lookup’s customer experience coupled with Roadrunnr’s P2P logistics is a game changer,” says Mohit Kumar, co-founder & CEO, Roadrunner.
