The dynamics of commerce are set for a paradigm shift from a cash based system to a system that is cashless. Small and medium businesses are yet to cope up with this sudden shift as they find only a small percentage of their consumer base savvy with cashless transactions. Though many players in the ecommerce industry have “cashed” in on this sudden change, they find that they are missing out on a large customer base that is yet to crossover. And when they crossover, which is bound to happen, they would see a sudden avalanche of business pouring in. As a courier and cargo service provider for ecommerce, we understand the need for beefing up and staying ahead of the game.
The needs of the courier and cargo industry are changing rapidly along with the changing demographics. The industry has diversified into separate directions with one end of the service spectrum becoming totally technology enabled and the other end specializing in providing micro level services.
The journey of the courier and cargo industry to its contemporary stage had first started with its investment in IT. This enabled the industry to handle volumes that were unimaginable previously. With Big Data, and IoT, the logistics industry has attained new levels of accountability and safety. While these technological improvements have certainly aided the operations for the higher end of the spectrum, the needs at the micro level have slightly changed.
The average individual does need premium services of a courier in different ways than before. A large contributor to this has been changes in the demographics. People have more and different needs today, and many courier and cargo companies don’t have customized solutions for these needs.
As Gati has made it to the second place in the top ten courier companies in India as per market capitalization in BSE, we realize that this growth has been a direct consequence of our interest in both the ends of the spectrum. We have specialized enterprise class solutions that cater to the industry at a much higher scale and customized solutions for all your clients who have special needs.
