Pandemic years have transitioned consumer behavior towards urgency that has created a surge in demand for quick delivery services which has in-turn led to several players entering 10-minute delivery and same-day delivery segments. Today what we see as a game-changer, Borzo (erstwhile WeFast), a global logistics player has been acing it since 2012.
With growing customer preference to order products from platforms that promise faster delivery and dissatisfaction with longer service delivery, Borzo addresses this challenge by equipping and empowering SMEs with fast, precise and same-day delivery serving all the pincodes of a particular city.

“We at Borzo believe that the SME segment forms the core of the Indian economy. It has been our philosophy to enhance ‘Ease of Business operations’ for SMEs and become partners in their growth. Fast internet and smartphone access have changed customer perception about deliveries. Now, Local businesses have to equip themselves to fulfill the growing same day delivery demand by being fast, precise and cost-efficient.

Our initiatives will precisely do that by adding value to business operations” said Devesh Gangal, Country Marketing Manager, Borzo India.
