Ecommerce service provider Shadowfax launched Flash—its on-demand delivery service app—which facilitates instant delivery services within cities. The newly launched app competes directly with Dunzo by offering 30-minute deliveries with fast, reliable, and cost-efficient last-mile delivery solutions. 

With a presence in over 50 cities, Flash by Shadowfax provides on-demand convenience, allowing users to request pickups and drop-offs as needed. 


The platform has introduced the concept of milk-run deliveries, enabling businesses to optimise efficiency and reduce overall delivery costs by consolidating multiple shipments on a single route.


The app integrates advanced GPS technology for real-time tracking, ensuring customers have full visibility into the delivery process.

"We are thrilled to introduce Flash by Shadowfax. In an era where speed, reliability, and cost efficiency are paramount, Flash by Shadowfax addresses the evolving needs of businesses and consumers alike. This service aligns with our commitment to innovation and customer satisfaction, providing a solution for efficient, on-demand logistics," says Praharsh Chandra, Co-founder and Chief Business Officer at Shadowfax.
