About WareIQ

We are making India's e-commerce businesses successful by giving them the power of Amazon-prime like logistics.

Modern eCommerce consumers want same & next-day delivery. But the infrastructure in India can’t keep up. 80% of eCommerce parcels outside Amazon reach customers in 5-10 days.

*India eCommerce demand is highly fragmented, yet 90% of brands ship from a central warehouse *If platforms & brands don’t offer prime-like shipping timelines, customers don’t buy *High fixed investments, rigid contracts & tech complexity makes prime-like fulfillment infrastructure inaccessible to online brands

Enter WareIQ. WareIQ allows eCommerce companies to compete with Amazon service levels by bringing their average timelines from 5-10 days to next-day.

*We're a software-only platform that connects a nationwide network of fulfillment centers and last-mile couriers centralizing all tools in a single platform *Ownership of logistics SLAs by WareIQ fulfillment experts *Micro-fulfillment model billed on usage with no minimums *Onboarding in 7 days vs 3-6 months

WareIQ is backed by leading global investors including Y Combinator, Funders Club, Flexport, Pioneer Fund, Soma Capital, and Emles Venture Partner
