Disseminating knowledge on time
The Indian print book market is upwards of USD 5 billion and growing at above 20% per annum for the last 5 years. It is the sixth largest market in the world and poised for fast growth. A significant part of this industry continues to be highly seasonal with academic cycles governing the demand. For such an industry, any unforeseen delay in transit can lead to significant revenue loss for the consignor. With our reliable technology-enabled logistics network, our publication partners are assured of 100% delivery in time, in turn strengthening their availability and presence in the market.
- Faster time to market: We offer a significantly reduced transit time by 50-70% compared to alternative mode of transportation.

This enables availability of the product at the right time of requirement, during new academic year, examinations, new book launches etc.
