Jugnoo announces ‘Dodo Deliveries’ for logistics segment

New Delhi : Auto-rickshaw aggregator Jugnoo announced its foray into B2B logistics segment with the launch of Dodo Deliveries to provide an omni channel, on-demand, hyper-local logistics service enabling vendors to deliver products to their customers.

This is a dual concept that not only adds to the myriad of services offered by Jugnoo, but also aids the local merchants and vendors to scale their businesses.

Complementing its recently launched hyper-local grocery delivery service, Fatafat, the launch is aimed at further augmenting its services. Furthermore, Dodo is integrated with Jugnoo, which gives the drivers an additional source of income by taking delivery requests when they are not taking any ride.

Apart from optimally exploiting its existing auto rickshaw fleet, Dodo has also aggregated other means of deliveries such as two-wheelers and commercial vehicles.

“After launching ‘Fatafat’, tapping the B2B segment was apparent as we had to associate with various vendors to source goods. Therefore, conceptualizing and actualizing Dodo Deliveries was a natural progression – from only grocery delivery to a comprehensive logistics service as well that adds great value to our overall service,” said Founder and CEO Jugnoo, Samar Singla.

“Both the ventures viz. ‘ Fatafat’ and ‘ Dodo Deliveries’, under the aegis of Jugnoo, are interrelated and complement each other. Additionally, we have the fleet of vehicles and are also aware of the demand for delivery services. There is an urgent need for end to end logistics solutions in the market and Dodo aims to be the next piece of the jigsaw in the hyper-local marketplace,” added Samar Singla.

Dodo is currently doing 200 deliveries per day and aims at delivering more than 500 orders per day in the next one month. Talking about the business model; there is no stipulated size for minimum order and charges for delivery start from as low as Rs. 30 per delivery.

Currently operational in Chandigarh, the services will be implemented in Indore, Gurgaon and Noida in two weeks’ time. Moreover, Jugnoo intends to launch ‘Dodo’ in more than 15 cities in the next two months. (ANI)
