The Delhi-based startup faced its biggest challenge in 2020 as the world went into lockdown due to Covid-19. Shipments from the company founded in 2017 dropped by as much as 95% in just a few days, according to the Hurun report.

It has raised $355 million in funding to date. It closed $185 million (₹1,380 crore) in a Series E financing round co-led by Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund Zomato, Temasek and Lightrock India, according to a
report through the economic times.

In June of this year, the logistics company also acquired a majority stake in Pickrr – an e-commerce SaaS platform for direct-to-consumer brands and SMB e-tailers for $200 million – consisting of cash, stock and earn-out. .
