Sprintr: Hy­per lo­cal last mile on de­mand de­liv­ery

Cargo Talk - - Technology -

LogiNext has launched its maiden last mile de­liv­ery plat­form, Sprintr, to of­fer an in­no­va­tive, ro­bust and tech­driven plat­form to both clients and de­liv­ery part­ners. The clients can eas­ily push or­ders and de­liv­ery re­quests via the plat­form. It has a pan-In­dia de­liv­ery net­work. The de­liv­ery part­ners may sign up in­de­pen­dently at the mo­bile app. The plat­form bun­dles dif­fer­ent or­ders on the ba­sis of the lo­ca­tion, ca­pac­ity, re­source avail­abil­ity, time pref­er­ences, traf­fic and weather pat­terns, dis­tance and many other pa­ram­e­ters and hence sav­ing costs and im­ple­ment­ing unit eco­nomics.

Dhruvil Sanghvi, CEO and Co-Founder, LogiNext So­lu­tions said, “We cater to bun­dled de­liv­er­ies within a lo­cal­ity across dif­fer­ent ver­ti­cals, in­clud­ing ap­par­els, gro­ceries, food and more. With 250 de­liv­ery per­son­nel cur­rently work­ing with us, man­ag­ing over 5,000 daily de­liv­er­ies, we hope to ex­pand and serve more clients.” In­dian Ports Act 1908, Bill of Lad­ing Act 1856 and Coast­ing Ves­sels Act of 1838 ap­proved dur­ing the time of Ba­hadur Shah Za­far.”

Ad­dress­ing the gaps in phys­i­cal achieve­ments of in­fra­struc­ture projects, in­vest­ment and trade fa­cil­i­ta­tion, Gau­tama, says, “If a pa­per is re­quired for a trans­ac­tion, then some­where there is a fail­ure in im­pro­vi­sa­tion. To­day, ship­ping lines is­sue e-BLs and even e-DOs (De­liv­ery Or­ders), stamp duty be­ing paid on­line, long­stand­ing con­tain­ers and aban­doned car­goes should be dis­posed of speed­ily.”

Any suc­cess­ful model over­seas that can be fol­lowed?

Gau­tama an­swers, “We need to em­u­late the mod­els used in Hong Kong, Shang­hai, Sin­ga­pore, Rot­ter­dam, An­twerp where ports and ter­mi­nals are just used for load­ing and dis­charg­ing con­tain­ers. A port like Shang­hai has a through­put of about 30m TEUs. In­dia’s com­plete through­put for year end­ing 31 March 2015 was 11.54m TEUs. If con­tain­ers are to be trans­shipped, no more than a sim­ple list should be needed. Reg­u­la­tory

The devel­op­ment of Viz­ing­ham port has a po­ten­tial to make a trans­ship­ment hub, how­ever mak­ing In­dia a mar­itime hub is a long drawn out process

pro­cesses should give way fa­cil­i­ta­tion pro­cesses.” to
