Logistics unicorn Delhivery has raised ₹558 crore from Lee Fixel’s Addition, according to the company’s latest MCA filings.

The logistics company has allotted 1,46,961 Series 1 CCCPS shares to Addition at the premium of ₹37,900 per share. In the past few months, Delhivery has raised a $100 million funding from FedX Express and another $275 million funding from Fidelity Management and Research company. The company is also eyeing a public listing by early next year.

Delhivery is an end-to-end logistics and supply chain services company, with a nationwide network covering over 19,400 pin codes.
