Flipkart Partners With Mumbai’s Dabbawala; Also Launches Crowd-Sourced Logistics

Flipkart tied up with one union of dabbawalas in Mumbai for last mile delivery of goods ordered on its portal. The partnership currently includes delivery of only prepaid orders, and cash on delivery orders will be included later.dabbawala
As part of the partnership, Dabbawalas will collect shipments from Flipkart’s delivery hubs and will deliver it the customers, while picking their dabbas. The dabbawalas will not be interacting with sellers at this stage.
Given that Flipkart is launching grocery delivery service, will this partnership be a part of the pilot?
Flipkart has also launched a crowd sourced delivery option called on-demand logistics, that aims to connect local sellers and buyers through voluntary delivery personnel, reducing the order to delivery time
Amazon too has partnered with Kirana stores.
