Mahindra Logistics and Flipkart team up for integrated line haul solutions

Mahindra Logistics announced on Friday that it would collaborate with Flipkart to develop integrated solutions to improve operational efficiency at the e-commerce company and strengthen both companies’ commitment to innovation.

Mahindra Logistics will support Flipkart’s nationwide operations with a dedicated fleet of heavy commercial vehicles, help with route management and network operations, and cutting-edge analytics. In association with Daimler India Commercial Vehicles, it will operate the vehicles for Flipkart, which will travel across India. Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and other features will be included in the vehicles to enhance driver comfort and safety.

Mahindra Logistics, one of India’s largest integrated third-party logistics service providers, will mainly facilitate Flipkart’s e-commerce parcel movement.

“We are pleased to collaborate with Flipkart and provide these pan-India dedicated line haul transportation solutions. These solutions expand our current line haul offerings for Flipkart, enabling them to reduce their total cost of operations and improve service,” said Rampraveen Swaminathan, managing director and chief executive officer of Mahindra Logistics.

According to Flipkart, the collaboration with Mahindra Logistics will help leverage its capabilities as it works to improve the efficiency and consistency of its line-haul operations.

“As India’s home-grown e-commerce marketplace, we have always believed that our actions should resonate beyond operational excellence and benefit the larger supply chain and logistics ecosystem in India. Their (Mahindra Logistics) dedicated fleet management, expert route management, and advanced analytics will enable an optimal way of load consolidation, route planning enabling efficient, faster, and sustainable deliveries,” said Hemant Badri, senior vice-president and head of supply chain, customer experience, Flipkart Group.

The Mahindra Logistics control tower is equipped to track fleet productivity by integrating connected vehicle technology. The method reduces the total cost of operations and boosts customer satisfaction while accelerating turnaround times and providing higher-quality services.
