Jugnoo, an auto-rickshaw aggregator, has launched its B2B logistics arm, Dodo Deliveries, in Gurugram. The service was first launched in Chandigarh.
Dodo Deliveries, an on-demand, hyper-local service, aims to create a marketplace enabling vendors to deliver products to their customers when, where and how they want to while ensuring a seamless delivery experience. It is a dual concept that not only adds to the myriad of services offered by Jugnoo, but also helps the local merchants and vendors to scale their businesses.
“Gurugram being a rapidly flourishing market and a corporate hub offers a lot of potential for businesses in the B2B logistics segment. Considering the growing demand in the segment, we intend to fully utilise the existing auto-supply in the region with this launch. Even though there is a lot of existing competition in the city, we are confident that Dodo can create a niche for itself and provide great value proposition for businesses, ” Head of Dodo Deliveries, Zorawer Singh, said.
He further added that the company is looking to serve a diverse range of clientele beyond just food segment, “We are not limiting our services to the food space and are serving a host of other vendors like hardware shops, grocery stores, pharmaceutical distributors, retail outlets, chemists, and even florists.”
Notably, Jugnoo’s network of auto-rickshaws in Gurugram currently executes 5000 transactions a day in the region and thus launching Dodo in the city is certainly a lucrative move for the company. Businesses can start using Dodo’s services by downloading the Dodo Deliveries App (available on Android & iOS) and registering themselves. The comapny has added two-wheelers and commercial vehicles to their fleet in Gurugram, making it an omni-channel service through which vendors can customise their delivery experience.
Going forward, Dodo plans to expand its presence. The services will soon be operational in Noida, Indore, and Surat. Eventually, the service will be introduced across all locations in India wherever Jugnoo is present.
