CHAKKR - Keep the wheel rolling

chakkr is a word in Hindi/Sanskrit, and represents a wheel. Our mission is to enable maximum utilization of the courier-transport vehicles on the road.

CHAKKR is “Shipment 2.0”; it’s an optimal shipment solution for online shops as well as end-users, using available capacity of couriers and transporters on the road.

Its an integrated B2C and B2B courier-marketplace that aggregates the schedule and capacity information of regional/national couriers, and provides an efficient and cost-effective shipment solution to businesses as well as to end-users.

  • Customers can get their shipments done cheap and fast
  • Couriers can win new orders and backload orders, and increase revenues
  • Through efficient transport capacity utilization, our environment stays green

CHAKKR API and partner widgets, enables ANY online shop or marketplace, or physical shops or chains, to seamlessly integrate CHAKKR as a “shipping-method” in their shopping and fulfillment process.

This provides their customers a variety of shipment options varying from low-cost return-loads by couriers, to exlcusive one-off same day personal delivery by couriers.
