6to8: Hyper Local Shared Economy
6to8 plans to expand up to 100, 000 daily milk & FMCG deliveries by launching 1000 hyperlocal areas
"The early hyperlocal failures led to online milk and grocery delivery being carried out from warehouses. So we now stand in a unique space since most early companies moved away from true hyperlocal. Our simple and low cost business model can be seamlessly replicated in any hyperlocal society in NCR. We only need 1 local part timer to launch service in any area, since our partners already have an outlet every 500 mtrs across NCR. We have steadily grown to our size at less than one tenth the cost it took other players. Our numbers stand testimony to our business model advantage," he voices.
What Lies Ahead Of 6to8
The prime movers have in view successive plans for 6to8. The growth plan is set around the concept of a hyperlocal shared economy matching the free time of existing staff to the service needs of residents. The short term plan however is to expand up to 100, 000 daily milk & FMCG deliveries by launching 1000 hyperlocal areas. It is aiming to mushroom its system for other grocery deliveries and introduce a troop of part timers across the localities of NCR. The objective here is to launch a cross utilised platform that supports all sorts of hyper local services. "To bring 6to8 into being, we have designed robust technology to remotely manage a network of part timers while also initiated tie-ups with market leaders like Bajaj & TVS to support them with fully financed bikes. On the other hand we keep adding to retail partnerships with enterprises like Patanjali and Mother Dairy," he concludes.
