Competition

Delhivery’s major competitors include Ecom Express, GoJavas, DotZot, among others. Among the traditional players in the space are FedEx, DHL and Blue Dart, who are facing stiff competition from these new entrants who have built their business focusing and riding upon the e-commerce wave in India.

Delhivery has so far emerged as the leader in this space both in terms of revenue as well as funds raised. Offering a unique value proposition of Plug-and-play to all kinds of online retailers and providing tools to manage their end to end operations, Delhivery seems all set to dominate this space.
