A joyous vibe for business this festive season

India’s festive season is already around the corner, starting off with Raksha Bandhan and continuing from Ganesh Chaturthi, Navratri, Durga Puja, Dussehra, Vijaya Dashami, right until Diwali. Traditionally, this is a period that drives consumption and investment, which translates into increased demand for multiple goods to and from all over the country. Leaving no stone unturned in enabling SMEs, distributors, and retailers to transport diverse products from key industrial clusters to consumption centres is Gati, India’s premier express distribution company.

In its Marketer’s Guide to the Festive Season 2023 for India, InMobi reports that 54% of respondents will engage in hybrid shopping, combining online and offline methods. Furthermore, 84% have increased their online shopping budgets compared to last year. Also, mobile seems to reign supreme with 79% respondents using it to explore options and 78% buying on it.

This is likely to drive demand for e-commerce, with leading players choosing to rely on their logistics service providers not only for express distribution across the country, but also end-to-end supply chain management and contract logistics.
