The demand for affordable and same-day delivery services is growing day by day with customers increasingly opting for online buying across services like grocery and food, fashion, home décor products, electronic goods and essential items, such as medicines. But there are not enough effective delivery options available for customers, and Borzo is bridging the last-mile gap in this particular space.

A focus on Pune

Increased focus on Pune is a part of a long-term expansion strategy of Borzo to integrate city markets in various States and UTs which comes at the back of Borzo’s phenomenal growth in India.

“We have been serving Pune for a few years at a moderate level. Now, we see immense potential in Pune and hence we will ramp up our investments to grow exponentially in Pune which paves the way for us to expand further in Maharashtra. We are targeting and expanding in high potential including upcoming metros, Tier II and Tier III cities. Beginning Q3 FY22-23, Borzo will target Pune’s B2B and B2C markets by increasing marketing spends, onboarding delivery partners, API integrations and Tech support. We expect that our strong focus in Pune in the next four quarters will contribute 10 per cent to Borzo’s India growth” said Eugene Panfilov, General Manager, Borzo, India.
