Bangalore-based express delivery service platform, Hipship, has raised an undisclosed amount from Inara Capital and Scootsy founder Rishi Khiani led consortium.
The startup plans to use the funds to further strengthen its technology backbone and expand operations across the country.
Founded in 2013 by Ankit Sethia, Hipship, is a logistics startup that offers door-to-door pickup and delivery for customers and SMEs across the country.
Hipship, on the other side, allows consumers to use pickup and delivery service based on price, date of delivery, choice of vendor and other filters ensuring a hassle free process.
The startup presently aggregates delivery services provided by express distribution companies. The startup offers service in over 90,000 pincodes across India.
Hipship co-founder Ankit Sethia said, “The process of shipping has never been an easy one for the customer. Right from choosing a vendor to sometimes physically having to drop the package/documents off at the desired location, the entire procedure was riddled with problems. Often, it would also end up eating into a customer’s time and money. The company was founded to specifically address the inherent difficulty that consumers face while arranging shipments from the comfort of their home/office. The Hipship app is literally a four-click solution to all kinds of logistics needs.”
