Don’t be surprised if you find yourself clicking a selfie with this delivery boy. He could be Sachin Bansal, the Flipkart founder. Recently, during the big five day festive sales, Sachin Bansal and other top executives of Fliplart became the delivery boys.

This is not a new concept, though. Many startup entrepreneurs, their friends or/and families chose to hop onto the delivery van themselves because of the following reasons.

  1. Low on funds: They may be short of funds, especially in the early days of the startup journey.
  2. Number of customers / Frequency of delivery: The number of customers or the frequency of delivery (weekly/ monthly) might be lesser, so it might not make sense to hire a delivery boy.
  3. Meet customers: It helps the entrepreneurs understand and get a first hand insight into the psyche of customers.
  4. Understand logistics: An efficient logistics chain, especially in doorstep customer services, is crucial. It gives the entrepreneurs a way to figure out what are the pain points of logistics and what challenges the delivery staff face.
