Before I started working at Speedbox, my knowledge about the world of logistics was limited at best. I did not give a second thought (or frankly, cared) how all my impulse purchases from my decidedly mild online shopping addiction “magically” appeared at my doorstep. Mandatory Business School classes had succeeded in painting logistics as a mind-numbing, boring field at best!
However, working at Speedbox — a logistics startup based in Mumbai — has helped me understand the challenges and innovation in this industry. What’s important to understand is that with the massive outbreak of E-commerce in India, there arose a significant need for growth (more startups!) in associated/related growth fields, like logistics. These start-ups emerged to fulfill the immense shipping needs that arose from the boom in e-commerce. The world of logistics that was predominantly offline has started to evolve and grow into a more online and contemporary model to match these needs. Speedbox is one such start up that seeks to revolutionize shipping by a fusion of logistics and technology.
Here’s why Speedbox might just be the solution to all your logistics needs:
