Online pharmacy Netmeds.com is planning to add 12 fulfilment centres across India by 2020. This expansion is part of the company’s effort to facilitate quick last-mile delivery of medicines.
Presently, Netmeds has 14 fulfilment centres across the country spanning an area of more than 3 lakh sq ft.
By adding new facilities, the customer experience will be improved by enabling faster delivery and higher fill rates. It will also improve the overall efficiency of logistics and supply chain management at Netmeds.com.
Pradeep Dadha, Founder and CEO, Netmeds.com, said, "Our goal is to make medicines affordable and accessible to every Indian, and to reach even the most outlying corners of the country. Setting up fulfilment centres in tier II cities help us achieve that objective."
"Through these centres, medicines are readily available, allowing the company to process and deliver orders efficiently, thereby reducing the overall turnaround time even in the most under-served areas," he further added.
The firm offers consumers access to over 50,000 stock keeping units of prescription drugs, for chronic and recurring ailments as well as thousands of non-prescription health, wellness and personal care products.
