E-com­merce boom perks SpiceJet cargo

Cargo Talk - - Aviation -

With a boom­ing e-com­merce mar­ket, SpiceJet plans for a big push in the cargo busi­ness. The air­line plans to buy 100 mini trucks and open around 40 ware­houses across the coun­try to pro­vide fast de­liv­ery op­tions to the click-happy In­dian con­sumer who in­creas­ingly buys ev­ery­thing from gro­ceries to ex­pen­sive gad­gets from e-com­merce plat­forms.

The air­line is plan­ning to launch a door-to-door cargo de­liv­ery ser­vice as it seeks to ex­plore other rev­enue streams amid a turn­around plan. With an eye on steady rev­enue flow, SpiceJet plans to fo­cus more on the cargo and an­cil­lary busi­ness in line with many global car­ri­ers.
