Delhivery reports net loss of Rs 69 cr


Delhivery, a leading logistics and supply chain solutions company in India, has reported a net loss of Rs 69 crore for the fourth quarter of the financial year 2020-21. This comes as a setback for the company, as it had managed to turn profitable in the previous quarter after consistently reporting losses for several years.

The company’s Chief Business Officer (CBO), Sandeep Kumar Barasia, attributed the loss to various factors, including the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on its operations. Delhivery’s revenue was also affected by the nationwide lockdowns and restrictions imposed to curb the spread of the virus. The company had to deal with disruptions in its supply chain and delivery network, which led to increased costs and reduced efficiency.

Delhivery’s journey towards profitability has been a challenging one. The company was founded in 2011 by a group of entrepreneurs with a vision to revolutionize the logistics and supply chain industry in India. It started as a small logistics startup, but quickly expanded its operations and gained a strong foothold in the market. However, the company struggled to achieve profitability due to intense competition, high operating costs, and the lack of a sustainable business model.

In 2019, Delhivery raised significant funding from investors, which allowed it to invest in technology and infrastructure to improve its operations. The company also focused on diversifying its service offerings and expanding its presence in the e-commerce and retail sectors. These efforts eventually paid off, as Delhivery managed to report a net profit in the third quarter of the financial year 2020-21, marking a significant milestone in its journey.

However, the recent setback in the fourth quarter highlights the challenges that Delhivery continues to face in a highly competitive and rapidly evolving market. The company will need to reassess its strategies and operations to navigate through the uncertainties posed by the ongoing pandemic and other market dynamics.

Moving forward, Delhivery remains optimistic about its long-term prospects and is committed to driving innovation and efficiency in the logistics and supply chain industry. The company aims to leverage its technology capabilities and network infrastructure to meet the evolving needs of its customers and partners, while also focusing on cost optimization and sustainable growth strategies.
