Online marketplace for automobile spare parts boodmo has launched its second Sorting Hub in Jaipur, India. The newly launched Hub is spread over a 2,500 sqft area and has a capacity of dispatching more than 1,000 parcels per day. Founded in 2015 by Ukrainian entrepreneurs Yevgen Sokolnikov and Oleksandr Danylenko, boodmo currently facilitates the sale of car spare parts from vendors to customers through its website.
boodmo.com has collated a massive e-repository of genuine OEM and aftermarket car spare parts, offering over one million varieties of spares by 400 suppliers of over 3,000 Indian as well as international brands. Since starting sales in January 2017, the company has witnessed a tremendous customer response and has served more than 10,000 customers to date.
“The idea of setting up the boodmo Sorting Hubs first came to us when we encountered unreliability issues in the Indian auto spare-parts distribution network. Customers were sometimes delivered incorrect products, wrong quantities or poorly packaged parcels which would directly hit our credibility as an online marketplace. So we decided to establish our own sorting facilities across India, where we could cross-examine products for their quality and genuineness, before dispatching to the customer,” said Oleksandr Danylenko, Managing Director and Co-Founder of boodmo.
boodmo has so far attracted INR 200 million in FDI, of which INR 50 million was raised in July 2018. With these fresh funds, the organization aims to strengthen its distribution channel by opening more sorting hubs. Locations are currently being explored in Maharashtra, particularly in Pune and Mumbai, for its next Sorting Hub. Bangalore is another city that the company would be exploring in order to cater to its extensive customer base in South India and improve the delivery process.
