Zipaworld - About and What it does

Zipaworld is a logistics service provider but the digital way, or a digital logistics platform. The team calls Zipaworld – The Logistics E-mall. The concept of E-mall is applied here, that is, a single-window portal that displays several catalogs, products, or vendors providing their products and services. The idea is to provide a single-window solution to the customer who is otherwise required to go from pillar to post for their requirements.

In the logistics arena, there has been a dire need for the centralization of processes and single window sources, as currently, the customer must go to various vendors and service providers. The concept of e-Mall for logistics was coined by the founder, Dr. Ambrish Kumar, and named Zipaworld. As the name suggests, Zipaworld provides various logistics services to the numerous zip codes of the world. This includes multi-modal transportation, other freight forwarding services through air, ocean, rail, road freight along with the other aspects of the supply chain.

Zipaworld is an online platform that provides automated solutions for domestic and international courier services, air freight, ocean freight, road/ rail freight, door-to-door services, first/ last mile pick-ups and deliveries, express services, warehousing services, customs brokerage services, and other logistics services. Zipaworld offers a seamless digital experience with features like freight query management, freight rate comparisons, online booking, prompt freight forwarding, automated freight documentation, live tracking, instant invoicing, online payment gateways, e-dockets for storing and archiving e-documents, and so on.

Zipaworld Integration Process

The vision for the next few months is to integrate more than 25000 zip codes of India into the platform and integrate the same with the global zip codes connecting them using the various modes of cargo transportation. The idea is to provide a seamless convenience to the end consumers like manufacturers, distributors, exporters, importers, traders to avail transparent logistics services at their own ease without much interference by the multiple mediators. The concept of delivering anything and everything will be achieved by the end of this year. The company plans to expand outside India on a large scale in the coming couple of years and become a global player with a virtual presence in more than 150 trading countries. It plans to create a huge network in the supply chain integrating all stakeholders for smooth movement of trade.

The long-term vision of Zipaworld is to use the latest technology like Machine Learning, AI, IoT to automate the complete logistics processes and bring in blockchain technology in the logistics and supply chain. The idea is to turn the tables for the supply chain bringing in sheer visibility, mitigating risks, reducing the demand and supply gap, consequently reducing the logistics cost which is currently very high.

Zipaworld - Logistics & Supply Chain Industry

The logistics and supply chain sector in India is the second-fastest-growing sector after e-commerce. The growth of the sector is phenomenal and contributes to more than 14% of the GDP. The worth of the sector stands at USD 170 billion currently and is expected to grow up to USD 250 billion at a CAGR of 10.5% in the next 5 years. This was the prediction pre-COVID, but the prediction has not changed much post-COVID as well. As the global trade is increasing and the dependency of the various nations on one another is also increasing, logistics is a sector that is getting benefitted. The Indian logistics market is one of the most significant ones in the global logistics and supply chain market which is worth $ 4.3 trillion.

Also, India is set to become a global investment hub for production and manufacturing, warehousing, and a potential trans-shipment hub and gateway for trade movement from the nearby countries. The supply chain and logistics sector in India is also the largest employment provider, with more than 8 million people employed across India. However, there are several drawbacks that keep the logistics cost at 14% of the GDP.

The major reason being the unorganized, disintegrated, and fragmented processes and players across the whole supply chain ecosystem. Only 15% of the players have an organized and integrated working model. Other reasons include the under-developed infrastructure of ports, cargo terminals, not up to the mark road and rail network, an uneven network of warehouses, lagging cold-chain facilities, lack of multi-modal transportation, issues pertaining to first and last-mile connectivity, decentralized customs procedures, and most of all non-availability of centralized and single-window logistics platforms.

Zipaworld's Ideation Journey - How it Started

The founder of Zipaworld, Dr. Ambrish Kumar is a hardcore logistics professional who has grown from ground level and held senior-level positions in various levels of the supply chain like, ports and terminals, shipping lines, freight forwarders, etc. He is also SAP qualified and always was inclined towards technological advancement, artificial intelligence, and human development. As he has experienced several loopholes in the conventional logistics processes that still exist with manual workflows and heavy paperwork, he realized that automation and integration are the need of the hour.

He, along with a team of logistics and IT experts had developed a prototype model of a logistics platform in his previous company where he held the position of CEO. However, since the company was only into freight forwarding, the scope of the digital platform was only limited to the B2B model and could not explore the larger supply chain. So, he planned to start his own venture by the name of AAA 2 Innovate Pvt Ltd which was launched during the pandemic in July 2020.

While the industry and most businesses were apprehensive of taking any new risks during the pandemic, Dr. Ambrish and his team found the pandemic as an opportunity to capitalize and bring about a digital transformation which was the need of the hour. During the unexpected and prolonged lockdowns, many conventional enterprises of the logistics sector suffered as they could not carry out their operations due to dependency on manual working, and businesses were badly affected. Zipaworld was launched within a record time of three months in September 2020 and started with automated processes for air freight transactions. This turned out to be a boon to many exporters and importers, traders of pharmaceuticals, and also to small freight forwarding enterprises as they could carry out their logistics transactions like checking competitive pricing options, book shipments, get automated freight documents, pay the freight online, track their shipments, get deals and discounts, and much more, all round the clock at their convenience.

Within a month’s time, it managed to get more than 20 customers and 30 vendors onboard the platform. There are some other reasons that rendered an impetus to Dr. Ambrish Kumar and his ambitious team to develop Zipaworld. The increasing logistics and supply chain cost which is almost 14.5% in India, compelled for integration and digitalization of the processes offering single-window solutions. Another major reason is the improving Government policies and initiatives to encourage the logistics industry and draw global trade opportunities and investments.

The portal negates conventional delays caused by time zone differences, as the price quotes and the processes are fully automated and are available 24x7.

Moreover, the whole process moves in a simple β€˜Previous-Next’ model, which makes the user comprehend the flow easily. The portal logs and records stage-wise updates and send push messages and notifications to the customer thereby keeping utmost transparency of the transactions.

The platform has simple-to-understand terminologies that anyone can use without any training or demonstration. Moreover, the platform does a single invoicing for multiple services availed for a single shipment.

While discussing the pain areas that have been addressed by Zipaworld, let us first highlight the pain areas of the customers seeking logistics services -

  • The logistics sector is largely disintegrated and fragmented. This causes the end customer or the owner of a consignment, to suffer the most.
  • Currently, not just in India, but across the world, there are very few single-window gateways that offer all logistics and multi-modal transportation services from one gateway.
  • Hence, the end customer must go to various disintegrated vendors for various services, like a vendor for warehousing, another for transportation, another for freight forwarding, and so on.
  • Moreover, the customer is required to manage the pricing, invoicing, and payments separately for each vendor.
  • This calls for not just wastage of time and energy, heavy paperwork, multiple authorizations, etc., but also fetches high-cost factors as there are many players and mediators involved.

In a nutshell, the uniquely designed Zipaworld portal addresses the pain areas and optimizes cost-effectiveness, time efficiency, and service efficiency.

Zipaworld offers options to pick and choose services with instant pricing quotes available for air freight, ocean freight and express services thereby optimizing the turnaround times. For air or ocean consignments, just like booking a travel ticket, one needs to insert some basic information like origin, destination, date of materialization, number of packages, weight and dimensions, and commodity type, checking the requisite services from the checkboxes.

The portal flashes instant live market pricing options with all-inclusive cost options to view cost break-up. The customer may choose based on service levels and cost, and e-book the consignment. Upon booking, the Airway Bill, Bill of Lading, or other freight documents get automatically created after which the online payment can be made.

The margins levels and service/ convenience fees and commissions have always been kept on the lower side as the bigger aim is to cater with a competitive and reliable gateway for the service seekers.

Zipaworld - Startup Launch and Growth Hacks

The company was launched during the pandemic which was a time of disillusionment for most businesses. However, the team saw it as an opportunity and looked forward to launching the platform for prospective customers from the pharmaceutical and medical sectors. The idea was planted rightly and they started getting pharmaceutical customers on board just within a fortnight of the launch. The first customer to be on board with the company was a pharmaceutical manufacturer and trader. The customer located in Mumbai could easily access the portal and e-book shipments on their own which helped them during the pandemic when they could not rely on their vendors who were mostly closed.

Earlier people had to approach multiple vendors like transporters, warehouse providers, freight forwarders, customs brokers, which was hectic and they could not focus on their core business. Also, they had to chase the vendors for freight documentation, trade-related authorizations, billing invoices which was a painstaking hassle. Also, they did not get proper information regarding the status of the processes and shipments. Zipaworld portal helped them improve their supply, procurement, exports, and distribution turnaround time to less than 1/4th of what it was before. They were able to focus on their core business more and maximize the production and distribution activities during the COVID time.

It initially managed to multiply the customers through existing customers who suggested Zipaworld to other exporters of pharmaceuticals, mostly they were from western Indian cities. Hence it can be stated that the initial customer onboarding was through word-of-mouth and traditional sales and marketing drives.

Zipaworld started carrying out digital marketing activities through social media, news media, and email marketing which further enhanced the reach of Zipaworld to other parts of India and also globally. It managed to get recognition from customers from the Middle Eastern countries and Europe as well. Gradually the startup managed to gain more than 100 customers within 4 months of the launch of the Zipaworld portal.

By the first quarter of 2021, Zipaworld started witnessing a huge influx of visiting customers and prospects through the Zipaworld portal which could be used for price comparison purposes without logging in or registration process. The launch of the Ocean Freight Module in early Feb 2021 saw an increasing demand for ocean freight inquiries through the portal mostly from the western Indian regions.

Further, the team managed to leap ahead investing stakes in Radiant X-ways Logistic Pvt Ltd, a 10-year-old Indian domestic logistics giant renowned for express distribution, catering to the first and last-mile transportation by air and road to a huge client base that consisted of electronics, spare parts, and pharmaceutical manufacturers and distributors. This helped it gain access to catering to the international logistics requirements of the customers.

Zipaworld - Challenges Faced

The Logistics sector still follows an orthodox working model. If one compares the air freight forwarding process with the passenger air travel industry, the latter is fully automated for almost 15 years with e-booking platforms and smooth paperless transactions.

In the logistics and freight forwarding sector, the fraternity is still accustomed to using e-mails and phone calls for inquiries with paper-based transactions galore. The team at Zipaworld faced an initial reluctance from the prospects to cling to a new digital means to carry out the transactions. However, they started getting overwhelming penetration and recognition amongst its customers within a month as the need of the hour was a digital single window gateway during the pandemic. The customers started understanding the dire need for automation of processes, accuracy, transparency, visibility thereby reducing turnaround time and following best practices. The idea of saving time, cost, and manpower and rather using these elements for more productive works has been comprehended by the customers.

Zipaworld - Competitors

There are several traditional logistics players embracing technology to automate processes and a lot of startups entering the supply chain arena to bring innovative solutions to the pain areas. However, one fact to be noted is that most of the digital transformations are taking place at the entity or enterprise level. That is, the automation is taking place to simplify a particular process and not integrating the complete end-to-end workflow.

For instance, there are enterprises and startups that have come out with solutions for first and last-mile connectivity, there are others that have brought solutions for warehousing, some others with ocean freight booking platforms. However, until the integration between these players happens with more single-window solutions, the loopholes in the supply chain ought to remain and the end customer will suffer.

If looked at the competition, it can be stated that there are very few online platforms across the world that offer multi-modal freight options in one dashboard. However, there are ocean freight platforms like Cogoport, FreightBro, air freight platforms like Freightos, and other logistics platforms like Far-eye, Shipsy, etc.
