In a strategic move to fortify India’s e-commerce export ecosystem, the Department of Posts has collaborated with Shiprocket (Bigfoot Retail Solutions)to harness India Post’s extensive reach and dependable shipping solutions to enhance cross-border e-commerce exports. The signing of the agreement in New Delhi, witnessed by key figures including Alok Sharma, Director General of Postal Services, and Saahil Goel, CEO of Shiprocket, marks a significant milestone in India’s digital cross-border trade.
The collaboration aims to streamline e-commerce exports, offering logistical advantages and simplifying export processes for small and medium-sized businesses. It will facilitate the creation of electronic Postal Bills of Export (PBE) and shipping labels directly from the Shiprocket platform for India-based vendors. This integration between Dak Ghar Niryat Kendras (DNKs) and Shiprocket allows for seamless connectivity, enabling vendors to avail packaging, label printing, pickup services, and shipment induction at the nearest DNK, further fostering e-commerce growth and innovation.
