Anuj Bhagat

Head of Grocery Supply Chain Product, Flipkart

Launched in 2007, Flipkart is now India's largest ecommerce marketplace with 100 million registered customers and 8 million shipments a month. The company, which was recently acquired by Walmart for $16 billion, has been a pioneer in myriad ways--it has overcome numerous logistical challenges to provide quick deliveries to all shoppers in a country where over two-thirds of the population lives in rural areas (by contrast, the rural figure in the US is under 20 percent). We'll hear from the Head of Supply Chain at Flipkart Supermart, the company's grocery division, about how it is developing cutting-edge technologies like automated route planning and traffic prediction to provide fast, slotted home delivery at extremely low cost -- under $2.50 per order.
