‘Minimum Order Amount’, ‘Maximum Delivery Area’, and ‘Delivery Time’, these terms are very familiar to anyone who frequently orders food, but what if you were told that these terms are no longer required when it comes to home delivery of not only food but almost everything deliverable. What if you are sick and need to get your medicine? Do you walk all the way to the chemist or would you love to get it delivered to your place? The second option sounds a little off track, but this is now possible. With VDeliver, you can get anything from food and groceries to even medicines delivered at your doorstep.
Sensing the necessity to deliver without any restrictions, Chennai-based VDeliver with the tagline ‘anything, anywhere, anytime’ was launched in April 2011. It is a hyper local logistics service which serves 50+ businesses across various industries and its major clients include some big names like Titan Eye+, Gifting Happiness, and Startup Leadership Program.
The Quest behind VDeliver
A quest for Idly delivering restaurants and sickness in a new town is all it took for the founder, Srinivas Madhavam to start VDeliver. A mechanical engineer by profession, Madhavam was suffering from fever in Chennai and wanted to get a couple of idlis delivered to his place. Being new to town, he had no help and none of the chemists was ready to deliver him medicines and he couldn’t manage to get the food delivered because the order was either too small or out of delivery area. To put an end to these restrictions, he came up with the idea of VDeliver.
The founder, Srinivas Madhavam, hails from Kadapa, Andhra Pradesh and takes care of the overall growth and marketing of the company. Co-Founder A S K Chaitanya Reddy, a Childhood Friend of Madhavam, joined full time in March 2014 and has been heading the operations and technology of the company ever since. The current team has 22 members including the two co-founders.
