Parcel Monitor: Embracing Hyperlocal Delivery in the E-Commerce World

Recent years have seen a rise in the global hyperlocal market, with more and more businesses rushing to offer hyperlocal delivery as part of their services. Hyperlocal delivery, in the broadest sense, is the process of delivering goods directly from a seller to a customer. As opposed to the conventional last-mile deliveries that can take anywhere between 12 to 16 hours, customers can expect to receive their orders within 2 to 3 hours with the hyperlocal model.

As part of their “Unpacking E-Commerce Logistics” Series, our media partner Parcel Monitor invited Suharto Chatterjee from Xpressbees to talk about hyperlocal delivery in e-commerce. Key highlights of the episode include:
i) How hyperlocal delivery differs from traditional ones,
ii) Benefits of hyperlocal delivery for both consumers and businesses,
iii) Common obstacles to expect when adopting a hyperlocal delivery model.
