~6th state to be covered in full after Delhi, Haryana, Tamil Nadu, Telangana and Goa~
~Opens 1000th Delivery Centre in Machilipatnam~
Ecom Express Private Limited, a leading ecommerce logistics solutions provider, today announced expansion of its delivery network to cover full-state in Andhra Pradesh with the opening of its 1000th Delivery Centre (DC) in Machilipatnam. By adding Andhra Pradesh to its full-state coverage programme, the company now boasts of 6 states with 100-percent full-coverage map including Delhi, Haryana, Goa, Tamil Nadu and Telangana.
The expansion of the 100 percent full-state coverage programme further cements Ecom Express’ position as a leading logistics solutions provider with end-to-end logistics capabilities. The company currently reaches around 10,000 pin-codes through 1000 plus delivery centers across India.
Commenting on the announcement, T.A. Krishnan, Chief Executive Officer, Ecom Express Private Limited said, “This development marks our commitment to act as catalyst to the industry growth and being an integral part of building an eco-system with industry focused solutions. It also brings us closer towards our strategic goal of extending full state coverage to over 23 states and 80 percent pin codes of the country within the next 2 Years. Andhra Pradesh, a newly carved out state with immense potential, has been under-served and the company has had a great deal of interest from customers and consumers in providing services to the state. With our services reaching extended areas of the country, ecommerce companies now have access to more locations where they get demand from but were not able to deliver the products.”
In conjunction with the expanded coverage, online shopping brands will now have access to additional 1420 pin codes in Andhra Pradesh by utilizing Ecom Express’ network of over 170 existing DCs in the state, including its 1000th Delivery Centre in Machilipatnam.
Ecom Express had raised $133 million from Warburg Pincus in June 2015 which is the largest round of funding raised to date in the Indian logistics sector.
The Company offers a variety of capabilities such as Prepaid Services, Cash on Delivery Services, Cash before Delivery Services, Dropship Services, Oneship Services, Reverse Logistics Services and Other Value Added Services.
