Jugnoo adds bicycles in its delivery vertical for last mile deliveries

Hyperlocal delivery and on-demand startup Jugnoo has announced addition of bicycles in its delivery vertical, starting with three cities- Chandigarh, Noida, and Gurgaon.

The Chandigarh-based company said that currently 50 bicycles are in the system that are doing deliveries with close to 300 daily deliveries by these bicycles. Going forward, Jugnoo will add electric bikes to the current fleet, said Samar Singla, CEO and Founder of Jungoo in a statement.

Why? Jugnoo said in a statement that the addition is made in an attempt to lower the cost of deliveries while choosing the eco-friendly and a sustainable mode of transport for deliveries within shorter distances. After starting deliveries via bicycles Jugnoo has reduced the cost per delivery by 30%, it added in a statement.

Jugnoo Delivery was originally started in March 2015 but was shutdown after eight month of operations for unknown reasons. The company then restarted the service in May last year. Under its delivery vertical,  Jugnoo delivers items like groceries and food using its network of autorickshaws, followed by addition bikes and commercial vehicles later on.  Initially, the service was restricted to delivering vegetables and fruits through the company’s network of autorickshaws. Eventually, it rebranded into a meal and tiffin delivery service. The company said that this business segment already involves around 7000 daily deliveries with 900 active merchants, with  clients like KFC, Burger King, Pizza Hut etc. It is already present in 19 cities across India and aims to increase its geographical presence in Tier I and Tier II cities across India.

Founded in 2014, Jugnoo is essentially logistics, last-mile delivery and auto rickshaw aggregation company, which has expanded its business into different verticals in last three year into on-demand and hyper-local space.  Currently, the Chandigarh-headquartered company is operational in 35 cities, and has a userbase of 4.3 million registered users. The company also provides B2B logistics solutions to over 17,000 clients across 150 countries, which is a major revenue source for Jugnoo. It claimed to have turned EBITDA positive in Q1 FY17.
