In a move that reiterates their commitment to developing differentiated technology solutions, Delhivery Private Limited (Delhivery), a leading logistics and supply chain company in India, has partnered with Mumbai-based Startup Réseau, a specialized operator of industry-backed accelerator programs, to launch the Delhivery innovation lab. Delhivery's core business differentiator has been its consistent focus on integrating Technology in a largely traditional sector like Logistics.
The innovation lab is an extension of the company's overall objective of developing smart solutions for businesses and the sector at large. The initiative will catalyze Indian entrepreneurs and the startup community to develop smart solutions in logistics and supply-chain and tap into the massive opportunities offered by digital technology. Kapil Bharati, Co-Founder, and Chief Technology Officer, Delhivery, said, "The scale and growth of Delhivery has been achieved through investments in infrastructure, network engineering, and an extensive network of partners, orchestrated by our in-house logistics platform. We work with multiple partners from startups to tech companies, to leverage their products and prototypes to continuously improve our systems. This accelerator program is our attempt to make this process structured and open to a large community of tech entrepreneurs. Through this initiative, we are looking to collaborate with enterprising startups working on developing Machine Learning, Machine Vision, AI, and IoT solutions for pre-defined business cases."
Ajay Ramasubramaniam, Founder & CEO, Startup Réseau, said: "Delhivery is built on the backbone of technology, and we feel that this is a great opportunity for emerging tech startups to collaborate. We have identified key business areas in which we are looking for solutions that are pilot-ready. In addition to operating a structured POC-led accelerator program, we also aim to discover interesting tech solutions for the logistics and supply chain industry. We are excited about this partnership and look forward to enabling some great success stories."
The objective of Delhivery Innovation Labs is to enable technology partnerships, strategic engagements, and proof-of-concept development on pre-defined use cases with emerging tech startups. Delhivery Innovation Labs is now accepting applications for its inaugural cohort, which will go live in November 2021.
