Can you brief us on the history of your company?

Rapid Delivery started with an aim to modernize the logistics market which runs with a traditional backbone. We first started by building the necessary software to optimize our operations. This enabled us to make the overall operations process much more organized and efficient. We set up our base in Mumbai and provided an array of courier services. We then settled down into providing forward, reverse and hybrid (Reverse + Forward) services. Now we are focused on helping the entire eco-commerce ecosystem become organized by providing an end-to-end solution which will cut through the traditional systems and will help us and our vendors get their entire operations streamlined on one platform.

How is your company positioned in the recent market scenario?

Our company competes with the traditional courier companies. We currently offer specialized logistics services to our clients like a pick + pack model and the peer to peer model apart from the traditional forward and reverse modes. We currently cater to 100 clients in Mumbai and have just opened our operations in Surat. We plan to rise from the competition by providing an end to end solution which will help make the E-commerce supply chain healthier that will form a part of our differential offerings to our vendors.
