Jugnoo, the hyperlocal on-demand aggregator announces the addition of bicycles in its Delivery vertical. The addition is made in an attempt to lower the cost of deliveries while choosing the eco-friendly and a sustainable mode of transport for deliveries within shorter distances. Jugnoo Delivery was originally started by making auto rickshaws as its logistics partner and soon added bikes and commercial vehicle to it as well.
Currently 50 bicycles are in the system that are doing deliveries in 3 cities - Chandigarh, Noida, and Gurgaon. With 300+ daily deliveries by these bicycles, Jugnoo has reduced the cost per delivery by 30%.
Commenting on this move, Samar Singla, CEO & Founder of Jungoo said, âThere is an increasing number of vehicles on road which contribute towards pollution, global warming and traffic jams. Therefore, we thought of switching to bicycles for short distance deliveries. Bicycles are proving effective in reducing cost per delivery and we are making continuous improvement to make our system efficient yet eco-friendly. In future, we plan to introduce electric bikes to the current fleet.â
Jugnoo Delivery is an on-demand hyperlocal B2B logistics arm of the company.
