Snapdeal network expanded to 27k


E-commerce platform Snapdeal has expanded its network by 1,300 pin codes in 2020, to now cover 27,000+ pin codes across the country.

The network, said a press release, was powered by more than 30 regional logistics players who have expertise in serving their local markets.

The selection of regional players is a conscious one with the intent to boost the capabilities of smaller players by giving them a chance to work directly with large platforms, rather than only as sub-vendors to large logistics companies, said the release.

The choice of local partners for the network was triggered by COVID-related disruption, which saw online orders grow from smaller cities, it added.

A company spokesperson said, “We want to empower the local logistics players with technology and create a service quality which is better than self-owned logistics networks.  The addition of local courier partners is a conscious choice to ensure that the gains of e-commerce are limited not only to buyers and sellers, but also create opportunities for local service providers to grow their businesses.”
