Let’s learn more about express one-day delivery and 2-day delivery and how Shiprocket Fulfillment makes it happen for your business.  

What is 1-Day and 2-Day Delivery?

1-day and 2-day delivery refer to express shipping wherein the customers receive the product they have purchased within the stipulated period. Standard shipping takes atleast 3-5 business days, but customers want quicker action on the delivery due to the changing expectations. 

When we talk about 1-day and 2-day delivery, it means that the entire eCommerce supply chain is expedited, and orders are processed 2x faster to ensure that the customer receives a correct, packaged product that fulfills their expectations. Therefore, the products are shipped even quicker to ensure that the courier company gets the products on time and dispatches them to their last-mile team to get deliveries fast.

Need for 1-Day and 2-Day Delivery

One-day delivery and 2-day delivery have become the need of the hour as more and more customers are switching to online shopping. With increasing competition in the space, many marketplaces and websites with elaborate infrastructure provide next-day delivery, making D2C brands seem slow in their approach. The final delivery is the ultimate test of the user experience and if the customer will shop with you again or not.

Also, customers, today cannot go to the market as conveniently as they did before. This has increased the pressure on eCommerce companies to deliver faster to stay relevant in their customer’s minds.

A survey found 56% of GenXers and 55% of Millennials prefer online formats to physical stores. Since most of the population in India is the youth, the demand for express delivery is only going to increase in the future. 

With increasing internet penetration and eCommerce expanding to tier-2 and tier-3 cities in India, you have to amp up your delivery service so that your customers return to your store when making a purchase. 

How Can You Achieve 1-Day and 2-Day Delivery with Shiprocket Fulfillment?
