Blitz | Same-day Delivery Platform
Started by Gaurav Piyush, Yash Sharma, and Mayank Varshney in 2021, Blitz is a same-day delivery platform enabling faster delivery for sellers at efficient costs.
The startup offers same-day delivery for sellers for orders placed before 3 p.m. Using the platform, sellers can predict and store inventory near their customers in Blitz’s dark stores, offer 4-hour delivery to buyers, and fulfil all orders on the same day.
Speaking about the development, Mayank Varshney, Co-founder and CEO of Blitz,
“We believe in challenging the status quo of the e-commerce industry. With simple-to-use products and high levels of operational excellence, we enable enterprises and medium-size brands with the ability to orchestrate faster deliveries at efficient costs – providing their management and logistics team with visibility and higher controls.”
The firm wants to make a dent by thinking differently and, at the same time, help sellers grow their business with simple-to-use products.
With the freshly raised funds, the startup will solidify its position as the go-to solution for the fastest and the most reliable delivery partner at an efficient cost for sellers and brands across India.
Commenting on the development, Anand Lunia, Partner at IndiaQuotient, said,
“The ecommerce logistics industry has not evolved in the last 10 years to meet the needs of omnichannel brands, although consumers and businesses have both evolved. There is a need to merge prediction sciences and smart logistics networks to meet the 24-hour delivery expectation with logistics as an extension of the CAC funnel. Blitz is a fabulous solution and a great team.”
As per a report by the RedSeer Strategy Consultants in April this year, the e-commerce logistics market in India saw total shipments reaching 4 billion in FY23. The segment is on track to cross 10 billion shipments by FY28 at a compound annual growth rate of 20 percent.
