“Our aim is to create a brand that online sellers use for anything and everything related to logistics. The company’s goal is to help become growth drivers to their sellers and not just logistics service providers.” – Rhitiman Majumder (Co-founder and CEO, Pickrr)

It is India’s number 1 exponentially growing end-to-end logistics and technology startup that acts as a courier aggregator and gives access to all leading courier providers in India.

FOUNDATION OF THE COMPANY
Gaurav Singla, the current Co-founder and CTO of the company used to work in Ironway where he met Ankit Kaushik, the Co-founder, and COO of Pickrr. Rhitiman Majumder, Co-founder, and CEO also used to be a manager in Ironway. After leaving Ironway, Gaurav and Ankit founded a company dealing with hiring but they sold the idea and came to Delhi where they met Rhitiman and decided to start Pickrr as a pick-pack delivery service. Initially, Pickrr existed as a hyperlocal delivery model but the focus was later shifted towards sellers- SME and MSMEs. After that, Pickrr never looked back and is constantly growing at a fast pace.
Ankit handles the operations and logistics part, Rithiman looks towards business, sales, and finance part while Gaurav focuses on the product part. The company’s operation mainly started in Delhi, Gurgaon, and Noida, and then it expanded to Jaipur, Bangalore, and Mumbai. The company is planning to grow more in the coming years.

CHALLENGES FACED BY THE COMPANY
Pickrr faced a lot of challenges in the initial phases. When it was launched, in one to two months, it partnered with 1mg, India’s one of the largest pharmacy networks. Pickrr did not have a license for distributing medicines and it was realized after delivering 10,000 packets. So, it faced a lot of problems and even ended up losing money because of unawareness.
