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 the 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
