The growth of e-commerce has boosted the rise ofseveral startups in India. Many are now taking the plunge of starting their own business. The ecosystem is only becoming more supportive by the day, and unfriendly policies are also being relooked into. Everyone is happily paying for the convenience that doorstep delivery service brings to them. It’s no wonder that businesses are capitalizing on the same.
Many startups consider building a delivery team to ensure that the product reaches their end customer. However, with the rise of logistics firms which provide these delivery services, startups are now preferring to outsource them. From express cargo delivery to your day-to-day courier, they have your back. Over the years, there has been a tremendous rise in logistics parks in India, all thanks to the e-commerce boom and in case you’re just starting up and are planning to delve into logistics, here’s how outsourcing your delivery services may benefit you:
Reduced Transport & Personnel Expenses
Logistics firms take care of your company’s shipping concerns! You don’t need to hire people saving personnel cost. You also save money on fuel, maintenance & repair costs along with vehicular costs.
Increased focus on core business
Outsourcing your delivery gives you more time and resources that can be diverted towards the core business, improving productivity, efficiency and most importantly, profitability. It is for this reason why we can see a rise in the number of warehouses for rent in Pune, Mumbai, Delhi and other cities.
Transfer of Liabilities
The company or firm responsible for a product delivery is liable for any damage or loss. Therefore, if the condition of the package is not suitable, the company may have to pay the losses incurred. By outsourcing the same, a startup saves up on such accidental costs, along with any costs associated with insuring the product.
Setting up an in-house delivery team takes time. The operations for the same are fairly complicated. Integrating an already established service is far easier and saves up on a lot of time for the company managers, and time is extremely crucial for young businesses.
Connecting with a reputed brand with proven performance can boost your company’s image as well. Fast, effective deliveries is what every customer wants, and having the same kind of performance associated with your brand only increases customer satisfaction.
