Introducing SARAL by Shiprocket – A One-Stop Mobile App for Hyperlocal & Intra-City Delivery

Recently, Shiprocket forayed into the world of hyperlocal delivery services. We enabled a platform for sellers to perform hyperlocal deliveries within a radius of 50 km at the rate starting at Rs.37. 

Shiprocket hyperlocal services enable you to ship products such as groceries, food items, personal and baby care items, and many more with multiple hyperlocal delivery partners that include names like Shadowfax, Wefast, and Dunzo.

We got an overwhelming response from our sellers who found this service to be extremely useful for their small scale business. Especially during the lockdown, hyperlocal deliveries worked great for sellers who wanted to continue shipping to nearby buyers. To make hyperlocal deliveries much more accessible and convenient, we present to you our Android app for hyperlocal delivery – SARAL.

Let’s quickly have a look at what is SARAL and what it has in store for your hyperlocal and eCommerce business-

A Closer Look at SARAL 

SARAL is the hyperlocal delivery Android app by Shiprocket. It is a dedicated app that lets you ship hyperlocal orders within a short geographical area. 

For instance, if you have a small store from where you sell groceries and want to deliver products within a radius of 20 km, you do not need to download the Shiprocket app to carry out hyperlocal deliveries.

With SARAL, you will be able to conveniently add hyperlocal orders and ship them, all through the dedicated mobile app. With this, you will be able to eliminate all the unnecessary steps that were followed to schedule deliveries and process them. 

Saral is a multilingual app designed to function in English and Hindi. It breaks the barrier of language and helps you process orders faster in your comfort zone. 

Here are some benefits that you can reap from this application. 

Benefits of SARAL

Wide Area Coverage 

You can ship within an area of 50 km with the Saral app. Provide your buyers with their orders within a few hours or the next day. Increase your user base as you deliver to a wider area. 

If you are a Kirana seller, who only sells products to nearby customers, you can expand your business by selling to individuals who stay at a distance of 20 or 30 km also.

    do you have an iOS app in the making? do you have a website with the same functionality as your app? does this platform have API integration with Shopify (as does your sister concern Shiprocket) which will read/write shipping/delivery details?
