Jugnoo launches Dodo Deliveries

jugnoo

Autorickshaw aggregator Jugnoo has launched its on-demand B2B logistics service Dodo deliveries.  The service is currently operational in Chandigarh tricity, and will be expanding to Indore, Gurgaon and Noida in two weeks’ time. Jugnoo intends to launch ‘Dodo’ in more than 15 cities in the next 2 months. There is no stipulated size for minimum order, and Jugnoo charges for delivery starting from Rs 30 per delivery. The company claims that Dodo is currently doing 200 deliveries per day. It aims to deliver more than 500 orders per day in the next one month.

Jugnoo recently restarted its hyperlocal delivery business “Fatafat” in Chandigarh. The service was then restricted to delivering vegetables and fruits through the company’s network of autorickshaws, with a few auxiliary items like dry fruits and frozen products. Dodo appears to the B2B version of this: it is integrated with Jugnoo, and allows drivers to earn additional money by taking delivery requests when they are not taking any ride. Note that Jugnoo has also aggregated other means of deliveries such as two-wheelers and commercial vehicles, apart from its existing auto-rickshaw fleet.

Chandigarh-based, Jugnoo was established in 2014 and has its presence in 35 cities. It claims to have over 12,000 autos at present with 35,000 people transacting per day. In April this year, it raised $10 million in series B funding led by Paytm, Snow Leopard and others. In June 2015, it had raised $5 million in a series A round of funding from Snow Leopard with participation from Paytm.

Last Month, Jugnoo had tied-up with personal assistant platform Helpchat to enable rickshaw booking from the latter’s app, enabling Helpchat users plan and book end to end journeys with a combination of local buses and trains, auto rickshaws and cabs etc.

In April, Paytm backed logistics data analytic firm LogiNext had acqui-hired Mumbai based last mile delivery startup YourGuy for $1.5 million. The same month, Hyperlocal delivery startup PepperTap had shut its grocery delivery operations, and announced plans to become a logistics company.

In October last year, Grofers had acquired the B2B logistics service provider Townrush for an undisclosed amount.
