Approach

Shadowfax devised a 2 pronged approach to create an omnichannel last miledelivery
Model around local kiranas
Approach 1

Shadowfax gave the electronics company the flexibility to choose between air and surface movement, based on their needs & lanes.

Approach 2

End-to-end integrated services provided to the brands. Shadowfax picks up the shipments from the plant and brings it to Shandowfax distribution centres, from where it is forwarded across multiple channels including - exclusive outlets, mobile and electronics outlets, e-commerce warehouses, and other core distribution network.

The details

Our tech also enables labeling activities on the plant floor, the very first touch point of any shipment so each piece of shipment can be tracked from the first mile to the last mile. Shadowfax provides additional layer of box packaging with a tough protective layer of vinyl box covering called the blue box.

To make the model feasible, Shadowfax did the following:
  1. The company can track the end-to-end movement of the shipment on the client portal and real-time proof of delivery updates as per the audit compliance.
