Paperfly Plans Big F-commerce Logistics Push
Ecommerce focused logistics startup Paperfly has announced a host of new facilities targeting F-commerce companies – digital commerce companies that operate using Facebook pages as their online shop, reports the Prothom Alo.
The company says it aims to provide smart logistics services to the smaller digital commerce companies in Dhaka. Among the new services it announced are 40 taka delivery charge within Dhaka, same-day delivery, one-week return policy, smart return policy without charge, and warehouse facilities. The company says it is working on opening up delivery hubs in 80 locations in the country.
Up until now, Paperfly has largely been focused on serving large scale ecommerce companies, this would be the first time the company made an explicit announcement regarding its ambition to get into serving smaller digital commerce companies.
Reading between the lines: Of all the announcement Paperfly made regarding its move to getting into f-commerce delivery, offering warehouse service is the most important one. For many small digital commerce services companies, the warehouse is a key challenge. Integrating warehouse and logistics could add a competitive advantage to Paperfly. Previously, eCourier launched a similar model in Dhaka.
