Introducing Shiprocket’s Hyperlocal Delivery Services!

How many times has it happened that a nearby customer ordered a product from your store, and you couldn’t deliver it because you did not have delivery agents? This problem persists with most grocery stores, chemist shops, online pharmacies, food delivery shops, home cooking ventures, etc. Many sellers lose out on customers who live close to the store because they cannot deliver the products on time, or they do not have the necessary resources.

Today, no buyer is interested in waiting for more than 24 hours or a maximum of 48 hours to get their products delivered. Moreover, if a buyer needs to purchase groceries, he wouldn’t want to wait for more than a few hours to get the items at his doorstep. Hence, it becomes necessary to be able to have a system in place that can help you provide these products timely and efficiently. 

To ensure that sellers can reach out to maximum customers directly without the delays of pick up, processing, and delivery Shiprocket has come up with their new venture – Hyperlocal Delivery Services

What are Shiprocket’s Hyperlocal Delivery Services?

Shiprocket’s hyperlocal delivery services are for eCommerce sellers who want to deliver their products within a radius of 50 km from the pickup location. Sellers can sign up on the shiprocket platform and ship their hyperlocal orders with a range of delivery partners.

As of now, we are active in 12 cities across India (you can find the list of cities in further sections), and you can ship with the experienced hyperlocal delivery agents of Shadowfax Local, Dunzo & Wefast. Soon, we will have more delivery partners delivering your orders too.

For Shiprocket’s hyperlocal delivery to function, the pickup pin code and delivery pin code must be in a range of 50 km.

How are these Services Useful for Your Business?

Hyperlocal delivery services can be a game-changer for your business if you sell items like grocery, pharmaceuticals, food products, cosmetics, medicines, etc. Here are a few benefits – 

Faster Delivery

You can provide the same day or next day delivery to people staying within a 50 km radius. This lets you unlock various opportunities and also build valuable customers who repeatedly choose your store. 

No Hassles of Volumetric Weight

You do not have to calculate the volumetric weight of each order. The only condition is that the product must not be greater than 12 kgs so that the delivery agent, who is delivering on a two-wheeler can easily carry it.

Decreased Shipping Cost 

You can ship at a starting price of Rs.79/5 km. Also, the return order charges will be the same as the forward order charges. This will give you an edge over businesses, and you can conduct more deliveries. 

Experienced Agents

Shiprocket gets you the best delivery agents of experienced partners like Shadowfax Local, Dunzo, and Grab. They have ample experience in the field, and you will not need to train them separately.

    I have a query about the point “You can ship at a starting price of Rs.79/5 km”
    Does this mean per order within 5 km of pickup, it will be 79Rs OR
    Per shipment can contain multiple orders to different locations within 5 kms of pickup location?

    • Srishti Arora Reply

      Hi Rahul,

      It means that for every order within 5 km of pickup. Also, our rates keep getting revised as new courier partners are being added.
