Bijak, the agritech B2B marketplace, has introduced logistics services in Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh to provide easy trading of commodities across the country.
Nikhil Tripathi, Co-founder of Bijak said, “We have observed a gap in last-mile deliveries among our traders. We believe that with our new initiative we will be able to provide long-term solutions to their emerging needs of logistics and as the world revives to the normal. Bijak uses a network of logistics providers across the country to fetch the best rate which is 10% cheaper than other logistics services.”
With the launch of its new service, Bijak aims to target 25,000 traders in Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra. Bijak is currently present in 27 states and 916 regions and trades over 110 commodities through its platform.
The motive of Bijak is to bring flexibility, convenience, cost-effectiveness and market linkages to all sellers and buyers in the Agri supply chain. Aligning to the company’s vision, Bijak has taken a step forward to facilitate transparent trading and offer services such as credit, payments/escrow, and logistics.
Bijak strives to provide transparency and trust in the trading system along with multiple trading options, fair pricing and an efficient and barrier-free agricultural market linkage.
Bijak has created an online marketplace/network of verified agri-traders through its proprietary rating tool that addresses the trust deficit between and enhances the accountability of, all stakeholders – including LAs and farmers – by providing access to more trustworthy buyers and sellers. Bijak also acts as an e-ledger for suppliers and buyers, maintaining the transaction history for both.
The Bijak App is available in languages such as Hindi, English, Tamil, Punjabi, Bengali and Assamese.
The company collaborates with all the existing players in the value chain including Agricultural Produce Market Committee traders, institutional buyers, and other agritech startups.
