With a promise to deliver happiness at the click of a button, the e-commerce logistics company Xpressbees has decided to expand in the Northeast.
The Pune based company will now reach the small towns of Northeast by using its Rs 85 crore capital, raised from present investors. They are planning to open some service centres or pick up points, where the customers can go and collect their ordered goods.
On a similar note, Flipkart has entered a tie up with Apollo Pharmacy, as the healthcare group has agreed to offer themselves as a collection center for the goods ordered online.
Amazon, the world’s largest online shopping portal has partnered with Vakrangee in 2015 to deliver goods in the rural and semi-urban areas.
FirstCry, the baby care products portal is also planning a tie up with e-commerce partners to enter the seven sister states. Retailers of these states are also considering this step as a business opportunity.
Since the top notch e-tailers have agreed to pay the shipping costs, they are becoming a major attraction for the third-party logistics companies who have willingly offered their help in creating a network in the northeast region.
At present, Xpressbees has successfully delivered around 10 per cent of 100,000 orders approx. to the small towns of the Northeast.
