80% of Snapdeal’s sales now shipped through its own fulfilment centres
Snapdeal announced that more than 80% of its sales are now shipped through its own fulfilment centres called SD+ Centres. Orders shipped through SD+ have end to end trackability and have helped Snapdeal deliver faster than anybody else.
Speaking about the milestone achievement, Rohit Bansal, Co-Founder, Snapdeal said “Managing a majority of our shipments through our own fulfilment centres is part of our mission to provide a reliable and frictionless customer experience. Shipping through SD+ gives us the opportunity to screen quality of products and the quality of packaging. We also have end-to-end visibility on all products shipped through our fulfilment centres and this enables us to promise and deliver faster than anybody else. We have built this capacity rapidly – in January 2015 only 7% of our sales were shipped through SD+ and in May 2016 this is 80%. More than 95% orders from SD+ are fulfilled on time and with zero errors.”
Snapdeal has 63 SD+ centres across 25 cities in India. Sellers who avail of SD+ services get a complete solution for all their logistics needs, including packaging and tracking of shipments.
