Indian online retailer Flipkart has expanded their Smart Fulfilment programme by including nearly 100 sellers in the programme. The Smart Fulfilment programme helps reduce the number of steps needed to ship an order, thereby providing a cost benefit for logistics, apart from speeding up delivery.
The investment helps the seller expand efficiency of picking; reduce mistakes, thereby reducing returns, with the return on investment visible in six to eight months. The online retailer ranks sellers in various categories like gold, silver and bronze; based on their number of orders, quality of products and fulfilment criteria. Flipkart aims to add many more retailers to their online initiative.
