How Pickrr is reimagining the logistics industry with tech innovation
Entertainment, hospitality or transportation – technology has completely transformed these industries by changing the paradigm of how they function. And logistics is no exception. With the entry of disruptive startups in the sector, the focus is now on automating the processes for D2C brands to enhance the entire pre- and post-purchase experience of a consumer.
In a bid to achieve the fastest possible deliveries and smooth last-mile operations, the logistical industry has made customisation and user optimisation possible to offer a personalised consumer experience.
India’s logistics sector is set to expand at a compound annual growth rate of more than 10 percent, from $200 billion in early 2020 to at least $320 billion in 2025, according to the McKinsey Global Institute.
Enabling convenience for sellers and consumers
With new and emerging technology solution providers in the sector, the challenges associated with reverse logistics, RTO, and warehousing have been resolved and e-commerce brands can focus on their core product offerings without any hassle.
Not only e-commerce brands but also consumers have benefited tremendously from a revamped logistical industry with better transparency in terms of real-time updates of their packages. Processes like exchange or return have become much easier and faster now. Trends like Q-commerce are making it possible for products to reach faster than ever before.
Lastly, better warehousing conditions are enabling e-commerce brands to offer superior customer service with timely delivery, ensure efficient packaging and processing to grade goods as per the legal and consumer requirements, improve risk management by protecting against price fluctuations and also provide safe storage for perishable goods.
In this rapidly growing industry, where numerous companies are trying to enter, leading tech-based logistics company Pickrr has been taking the logistics sector by storm.
