LogiNext buys last mile delivery specialist YourGuy
Logistics software provider LogiNext has bought the Mumbai-based last mile delivery specialist YourGuy. YourGuy’s staff and delivery personnel will now be absorbed by LogiNext’s own last mile delivery service, Sprint.
According to local sources, YourGuy delivers around 4,000 orders a day for a range of customers. On its website, YourGuy said that it “delivers products like meal boxes, medicines, important documents, clothes and a bunch of other items; all across Mumbai within a few hours from pickup, starting at 6am until midnight”. The company added that it “uses bikes, vehicles and all forms of public transport that the city offers”.
In a notice posted on its Facebook page yesterday (25 April), LogiNext said: “We welcome team YourGuy to the LogiNext Family. The move is expected to increase LogiNext’s delivery network and volumes by 100%.”
Dhruvil Sanghvi, CEO of LogiNext (which has offices in India and the US), commented: “We will be using the Sprintr platform to on-board regional last-mile delivery players who use our tech and pay us a share in the commission. LogiNext will also direct business to these regional players to incentivize the association.”
Sanghvi added: “Apart from Mumbai we are also looking at acquiring a last mile delivery player in Delhi-NCR to strengthen the Sprintr vertical.”
