TRAPIGO, a startup by IIT-IIM and NIFT graduates, is a last mile ‘B2B’ logistics service provider for food products.
“To ensure reliable delivery of hot and fresh food from the choicest restaurants in the city, TRAPIGO – with its own fleet of delivery boys in co-branded uniforms – will guarantee the execution. Orders placed on IRCTC’s e-catering website www.ecatering.irctc.co.in or ‘Food-on-track’ app will be delivered by TRAPIGO in neat packaging with co-branded tapes, stickers etc. at a nominal fee of Rs. 15,” an official statement read.
“This new partnership was today made live in Nagpur on a pilot basis with expansion plans including other cities in the North-Central belt like New Delhi, Itarsi, Jhansi, and Bhopal,” it said.
Shree Mahalakshmi Swayam Sahayata Bachat Ghat, a self-help group (SHG) impanelled with the IRCTC under the e-catering project at Ratnagiri, famous for its export-quality Alphonso mangoes, has shown interest in selling fresh and naturally ripened organic mangoes to the passengers. The SHG will sell the mangoes at a discounted price of Rs 470 per dozen. This is a first of its kind effort in offering seasonal fruits on a train, the statement read.
