You know it very well; without the last-mile delivery solution, delectable orders from your favourite restaurants, essential grocery items, and all items on e-commerce websites will never reach your door.

Although you can’t naturally compare it with the likes of Bengaluru and Mumbai, Kolkata holds its own for being the third-most crowded metropolitan city in India, nurturing entrepreneurial talent, and creating a wealth of fantastic career opportunities.
