A new delivery service platform called Pathao has been launched recently in Dhaka. The service, available via an app, promises same-day delivery of your packages within Dhaka city and also offers tracking options, and ensures verified delivery people for security. However, we could not find more details about the service. We’ve reached out to the Pathao team to learn more about this but have yet to get a response.
Sending things is difficult in Dhaka. Moreover, there is a growing base of ecommerce companies that also need delivery services. There are existing services and few of these services are pretty good but there are scopes to play in this space. Especially, if you are promising same-day delivery which is difficult in Dhaka given the traffic conditions and cash-on-delivery mode of ecommerce businesses. However, it seems Pathao is aiming for a B2C market in this space and looking to deliver more small items like flowers instead of going for ecommerce delivery.
