When a courier can be home delivered, then it can be home picked-up too with proper coordination and integration. Zipaworld portal is already aptly designed for the plug-and-play integration and can manage the concept. While we had already ventured into the international courier segment and B2B market, getting into the domestic courier market was easy for us. We were also encouraged to develop this wing of the services as it is also attributed to the feedback and suggestions received from some of the visitors and users of the portal. We hope the portal is useful for our customers and they can stop at Zipaworld for all logistics services at one place.”
