About Dotzot Shipping
DotZot is an offshoot of the DTDC Group that works dedicatedly to bring logistics innovation to the ecommerce industry. It was established in 2012 with the single aim to provide pan-India order fulfillment for ecommerce businesses and online retailers. The company which started small with only 7500 serviceable pin codes at the time of inception, now caters to 2300+ cities across India and over 10000 pin codes. It has 142 regional offices, 19 transport hubs and 2 fulfillment centers across India. DotZot commands a massive workforce of 8400+ people and partners with over 10000 courier delivery providers. Since 2016, DotZot has also begun Store Pickup and Return services with 1000 local stores in 10 major cities. Thus becoming India’s first ecommerce solution provider to do so on a pan-India scale.
It is also one of the rarer courier delivery providers to offer COD or Cash on Delivery services to over 7500 pin codes throughout India. All information on DotZot can be found on their official website - www.dotzot.in. Shipping with DotZot is fairly straightforward and comes with attractive advantages for both the ecommerce retailer as well individual shippers. With DotZot you get 3 types of shipping services - Premium, Express and Economy. Premium shipping guarantees next day delivery (NDD) to all metros and 2-3 days for other cities. Parcels can be delivered from Monday through Saturday, with the exception of Sunday, which can also be requested at an added price. Premium shipping is only applicable for prepaid shipments and the maximum weight per shipment is 10 kgs.
Express shipping is the second best option after Premium. This option can get orders delivered to 9900 pin codes across 2300 districts. Time of delivery may vary and 3 attempts for order fulfillment is made without any extra charge. The weight limit on Express shipping is 32 kgs. And lastly, Economy shipping. Economy is the best option for orders that are not time-sensitive. Economy shipping, naturally, is the cheapest of all the shipping services. Economy offers delivery to the same serviceable locations as Express shipping does. The plus side with Economy is that retailers can ship products weighing upto 68 kgs. There is no specified timeframe for when orders are delivered with Economy, but generally, it is somewhere between 5-8 days.
DotZot enables customers and ecommerce businesses to track the orders at all times through their own website. You only need to enter your Airway Bill number to get the exact location of your order. DotZot also offers 3 value-added services - Returns Management, Cash on Delivery and Store Pickup or Return.

In a similar way, customers who wish to return a package can choose their nearest store and drop the parcel at the store. DotZot provides some tailormade solutions for the online entrepreneur.
