Society Essentials Ordering | The beginning
At the time when there was a lockdown in 2020 and there was a sudden shortage of
manpower to support home deliveries, SEO started home deliveries deploying the software
team to collect, sort, and deliver fresh fruits from the farmers who could cater. The team
started off in a week’s time and grew from single location delivery to more than 200 locations
Fresh fruits are perishable and each fruit has a story of its own. Each fruit has its own ripening
cycle, taste, size, and that matters to all of us. Fruits are rich in nutrients and allow you to add
a higher portion of healthy food mix to your diet.
Fresh fruits also have a limited shelf life and need minimal handling and shorter cycle times. It
was important to put a short collation and shipment model which allowed recently harvested
fruits to reach the customer directly. This has also allowed us to work in lower inventory
models and improve them in every cycle.
We further look at optimizing transport which is another leg to the sustainability effort
optimizing the number of trips and we believe that is the long term way to go. Do look at a
planned approach that makes a difference and yet gets the best through society essentials.
