Swiggy Delivers Over 1.5 mn Orders Every Month on Mechanical Cycles

Twenty per cent of these Swiggy delivery partners are present in tier 2 and tier 3 cities like Surat, Belgaum, Guwahati and Lucknow

Swiggy, domestic online food ordering and delivery platform, on Saturday said it delivers over 1.5 million orders every month on mechanical cycles. It has a fleet of over 1.7 lakh delivery partners in more than 120 cities.

“A couple of years back we initiated concerted efforts to make deliveries more sustainable for the environment. With close to 10,000 delivery partners on cycles each day, we have found that in some cities the average travel time for a delivery partner on cycles is lesser than bikes,” Srivats TS, Vice-President, Marketing, Swiggy, said in a statement.
