E-commerce logistics services provider Delhivery has raised $85 million in a Series D round of funding led by Tiger Global Management and participation from existing investors including Multiples Alternate Asset Management, Nexus Venture Partners and Times Internet Limited. The platform will use the funding to build infrastructure and design new services for e-commerce, hyper-local commerce, C2C commerce and other verticals with specialized requirements like reverse logistics, furniture and grocery. Delhivery had previously raised $35 million in a Series C round of funding led by Multiples Alternate Asset Management, and participation from investors Times Internet and Nexus Venture Partners. Prior to this, the platform had raised close to $5 million in Series B investment from Nexus Venture Partners in September 2013, and Times Internet had bought a minority stake in the company for an undisclosed amount in June 2012. Interestingly, Delhivery had claimed to be present in 180 towns and cities across India when it last raised funding, and had said then that it had plans to expand to 260 cities by the end of 2014. However, as indicated by its website, the service seems to be present in only 150 cities as of now. Founded in May 2011, Delhivery provides logistics solutions for e-commerce companies. This includes solutions like last mile delivery, third party warehousing, reverse logistics and multiple payment collection and processing options. It also provides vendor-to-warehouse and direct vendor-to-customer shipping solutions.
