Startups eye delivery space: Young firms like Delyver, Grofers deliver a whole range of services
Big cities in India are increasingly witnessing the emergence of a new bunch of startups eager to deliver a whole range of services to people at their door step. Startups like Bangalore’s Delyver and Gurgaon’s Grofers deliver groceries and meals. Scootsie (formerly known as Meals on Wheels) in Mumbai specialises only in restaurant deliveries for now but are keen to expand into hypermarts. However, Prahlad Tanwar, director for transport and logistics at KPMG, is cautious regarding the scaling up potential of these ondemand companies, saying that these startups are operationally intensive activities and there are low-entry barriers to the market.
