Consulting, a research based advisory firm focused on achieving excellence in
the consumer internet market, reveals that the delivery performance metrics
(Order to Delivery Time and Compliance %) across major Saudi Arabian cities is
better than in India.
the Indian E-commerce market is much more competitive and mature (in terms of
well-funded players) than Saudi Arabia, deliveries across Riyadh and Jeddah are
still much faster than Mumbai, Bangalore and Kolkata; while deliveries across
Delhi are half a day faster than Saudi Arabian cities.
for all Saudi Arabian cities is 100%, even though majority of orders are
non-warehouse fulfilled; compared to around 88% across Indian cities.
Commenting on the finding of the research, Sandeep
Ganediwalla, Managing Partner, RedSeer Consulting said,
“The simplified (read no interstate transfer tax) tax regime across Saudi
Arabia, has led to check-post free travel, leading to a faster supply chain. Whereas
in India, 65% of logistics move by road and time spent at interstate check
posts due to the difference in taxes between states accounts to idle time (60%
of total journey time). This is despite the Indian market being more
competitive and mature.”
