The Minister of Communications expresses optimism that the MoU with the Confederation of All India Traders and Bharat eMart will provide small traders in the nation with the crucial logistical support they need, enhancing both their businesses and job opportunities.
The agreement will benefit medium and small traders as they will be capable to use India Post as a single logistics service provider across the nation. Confederation of All India Traders’ strong merchant base and small and medium-sized businesses in the unorganised zone would be able to access shipping and last-mile delivery services thanks to a partnership between India Post, Tripta, and the Confederation of All India Traders. The agreement will benefit thousands of merchants and is an important step in bringing e-commerce to smaller towns and rural areas.
