Delhivery, an integrated logistics provider, has partnered with Bengaluru-based software solution provider eSamudaay to enable rural businesses to scale by serving customers across India.

The Bengaluru-based firm has launched a tech-enabled platform called TyohaarForever Platform to curate a vast range of hyperlocal products produced by local artisans.

Through the partnership, eSamudaay aims to utilise Delhivery's extensive pan-India delivery network to make these local products produced by artisans accessible nationwide.

Delhivery has a nationwide network covering over 18,400 pin codes, the company provides a full suite of logistics services such as express parcel transportation, partial-truckload (PTL) freight, full truckload (TL) freight, cross-border, supply chain, and technology services. 

It claims to have successfully fulfiled over 1.7 billion shipments since inception and today works with over 28,000 customers, including large and small e-commerce participants, small and medium enterprises (SMEs), and other enterprises and brands.

The first set of cross-country orders for Himalayan Honey from Tenacious Bee Collective, a start-up supporting local beekeepers, have reportedly been fulfilled through the platform.

"A Delhivery field executive picked up the products from Jia valley, located in the Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh, to ship to Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore," the company said in a statement.

The company further added that the coming together of Delhivery and eSamudaay, network partners of Open Network for Digital Commerce (ONDC) can effectively broaden the footprint of local products and aligns with the government of India's plans of 'Make in India, for the world’.

"ONDC aims to bring the smallest of sellers onto the network and provides them with a level playing field. I'm delighted to see two network participants, Delhivery and eSamudaay, enable 'Tenacious Bee Collective,' a small company from Kangra, Himachal Pradesh on-board onto ONDC to take its products to customers across India," said  T Koshy, managing director and chief executive officer (CEO) of ONDC. 

"We are excited to collaborate with ONDC network enablers such as eSamudaay to open up new vistas for delivering value and creating wealth at the grassroots level using digital technologies," said Ajith Pai, chief operating officer (COO) of Delhivery.

"With Delhivery's technology-enabled, fully-integrated logistics solutions, entrepreneurs and businesses from the remotest villages and settlements can serve customers across the country. India has huge demand from different tiers of the economy, and ONDC will truly unlock the growth potential of digital commerce in India," Pai added.
