Quickshift - About and Vision

Quickshift (QS) offers a complete suite of fulfillment services for any D2C brand that wants to scale up quickly while offering the best customer service. A challenge for a D2C brand today is how to fulfill in a cost-effective manner within a time frame of same-day or 1-2 days if they get an order from another part of India typically 2000 km away. If the brand does not service, then they risk disappointing the customer, and cannot build scale, thus increasing their Cost of Customer Acquisition further. This is where QS steps in. Through its tech-enabled, multi-city warehouses and integrated shipping, it offers- transparent order management, storage, shipping, COD, RTO, Non-Delivery Receipt (NDR), and ultimately customer delight.

QS wants to be the company of choice for any brand marketing its products digitally. It wants to be recognized for its tech-leadership, building inefficiency in the post β€˜buy’ phase of the customer, a critical time when the Post Purchase Dissonance sets is and the same can be lost.

QS’s team believes in the Indian consumption story. It seems tremendous opportunity in the consumer value chain that technology presents. These would start forming as the endeavor grows.

Quickshift - Idea and Inspiration

The business model has been functioning of research as well as evolution. QS in its very early days was offering fleet as well as fulfillment, it realized the need for technology and the substantial difference it would make in Order Management, right up to the customer and then the payment process. Hence QS started integrating the full value chain. Once brands onboarded, they got the advantage of integrated processes. They no longer had to talk separately to tech enabler for Order Management, a warehousing company (and multiple ones for different zones), a logistics/courier partner for the last mile, etc., steps that increased the no. of transactions and created complexities. Instead, QS was answering that. The brands themselves asked QS to open more centers to enable their fulfillment go pan India, and hence came the multi-city distribution plan.

Quickshift - Product/Service and USP

QS has built integrations with all leading marketplaces like Amazon, Flipkart, Nykaa, Ajio, etc as well integrates with any own developed e-com platforms like Shopify, Woocommerce, Magento, etc. On the shipping side, Quickshift can reach out to 30000 Pin Codes across India through its affiliations promising same day and next day TAT's. It has its own fulfillment centers in Mumbai, NCR-Delhi, Pune, Bangalore, and Kolkata, all tech-enabled to manage the process efficiently and in a cost-effective manner. It provides a dashboard to its customers that offers them to have a birds-eye view of its stocks across warehouses, its orders getting processed, despatches, COD’s and also insights into its sales and inventory. Β 

  • QS reduces the costs of fulfillment by over 35%
  • For a brand, it provides a single point of contact for Warehousing, Order Processing, Shipping, and Technology
  • In addition, to International brands that would like to create a distribution network to tap the Consumption potential in India, QS provides a one-stop-shop to establish its reach within India
