The overwhelming response that we’ve seen in just a year of our operations, owing to safe and reliable delivery by a dedicated and well-trained delivery staff, even during pandemic, we are confident to speed up our expansion plans and chart new growth. For Pidge, Mumbai was the obvious choice after Delhi-NCR region, given the similar dynamics complexities. We are excited and optimistic that we’ll be able to delight businesses and consumers in Mumbai the same way as we did in Delhi and NCR region.”
He added, “We also remain committed to our passionate and trusted team of delivery executives. As we expand, we continue to look out for team members who resonate Pidge’s value. We will continue to hire people on company payroll, continuing to give them an opportunity to grow and enjoy insurance benefits like white collar professionals.”
“In Pidge, we have found partners who not only seek to provide top quality services but are also passionately committed to achieving it. The entire team is open to learning all the time, which is a great sign that the owners are seeking to build a long lasting and rich legacy. The true brand ambassadors of Pidge are their riders, and every little thing – from their personal turnout to the extremely polite customer dealing – makes the company shine through!” said Aseem Grover, Founder of Big Chill.
Pidge has been popular among its customers for timely, safe and reliable delivery by a dedicated and trained delivery staff and one of its USP has been its tamper-proof packaging that enables customers and businesses to place as many items as the package can fit, with no maximum limit. To double up the security, the package is packed and sealed by the customers themselves and Pidge follows it up with live tracking of the package in transit and a one-time password (OTP) process as soon the package is delivered.
Arman Sood, Co-Founder, Sleepy Owl Coffee commented, “It has been amazing working with Pidge. I’m really happy with the service as well as the efficiency with which the system works. The team has supported us to ensure that the deliveries to customers are as per our requirements and customisations.”
Pidge is expecting to reach around 25x deliveries in the upcoming festive season and intends to have 1500 delivery executives to its rider count in coming months.
