Update: Click here to see the detailed rates of Zepo’s AVN Logistics Tie Up.
Logistics is a very integral part of an e-commerce business. And we don’t want to screw up your customer deliveries. Like they say,
“One happy customer tells 2-3. One unhappy customer tells 10.”
In our endeavor to help you with a complete e-commerce solution, we have tied-up with AVN to extend a culmination of different domestic courier providers, rolled into one, at special rates.
Why AVN logistics services?
- Tie-up with 2 Major Courier Service providers – FCouriers + Gati
- Lower rates without any minimum commitments
- Wider pincode coverage (delivery as well as pick-up)
- By 12th February, 2014, we would do a full-fledged automated integration of this service – with your Zepo dashboard. With this integration, you would be able to schedule a shipment with just one click
