Shiprocket, a leading tech-enabled logistics aggregation platform, has launched a free shipping service as a relief measure, where the platform will be providing free shipping of essential items for NGOs and Non-Profit Organizations that are looking for assistance.

Organizations working to deliver items such as groceries, vital medication, medical equipment, and personal protective gear will be eligible to avail Shiprocket’s free shipping services to supply the goods to hospitals or those in need. Available in all the cities across the country, the service has a 4-step registration process. NGOs and Non-Profit Organizations that wish to register will have to first fill in the request form post, download the Shiprocket app, and complete the KYC registration. Consequently, post-verification, 10,000 shipping credits will be added into the organization’s account that can be used to avail free shipping.

Speaking on the initiative, Saahil Goel, Co-Founder, and CEO of Shiprocket said, “Shiprocket has launched free shipping services for NGOs and Non-Profit Organizations that are looking to deliver COVID-19 essentials to those in need. Apart from free shipping, we will also be offering any logistical assistance that these organizations require to ensure that the goods reach their respective destinations safely. We hope the country recovers from this crisis, soon.”

Registered organizations will be required to submit the company PAN Card and Company Incorporation Certificate/12A Certificate as part of the verification process. All the shipments will be shipped in adherence to the Government of India’s COVID-19 shipping guidelines. Organizations can register on https://www.shiprocket.in/covid19-relief/
