Local courier service FastBeetle launches mobile app

With an aim to ease logistic arrangements to local small entrepreneurs and startups, FastBeatle, the first courier service provider of Kashmir, launched its mobile application this week.

The app was launched by deputy commissioner, Srinagar, Shahid Choudhary and director Jammu and Kashmir Entrepreneurship Development Institute (JKEDI), Tufail Matoo in presence of a large gathering of local entrepreneurs at a function at Zero Bridge Café in Srinagar. The android app is available on the Playstore.

Embarked with an aim to revolutionising the traditional implementations of logistic services, two friends Abid Rashid Lone and Sheikh Sami Ullah brought up their messenger and logistics idea by collaborating it with the realm of technology. Setting up the startup locally from Srinagar in October 2018 to international shipments within has reached 200 shipments daily.

With the launch of the app, FastBeetle has made it easier for its customers to arrange for the delivery of their shipments locally or anywhere with country or to outside world on click of a button.

“Be it surprising the loved ones with the fancy gifts, taking care of pharmacy needs of closed ones or delivering the fragile parcels to their destinations; FastBeetle plays it all for you,” says Sheikh Sami Ullah, one of the founders.

FastBeetle started the logistic services from locally run online and offline businesses which have besieged the valley on trending heights. Working now as a network wherein there is direct correspondence with customers, pick ups and deliveries in a timely manner with a powerful management system integrated on a mobile app as well as on a web platform and most of all the fastest delivery to the clients.

Not only do the logistic service provided, aid in the quicker and faster delivery to customers; but also does it provide an opportunity of growth and welfare for local businesses and the small-scale entrepreneurship.

“The aim isn’t limited to business; it is much more about empowerment especially to the locally run chains by women who face difficulties in delivering their services to customers. FastBeetle is a gateway to meet your business requirements in a much reliable and fast environment,” says Abid Rashid, co-founder of the startup.

As of late Kashmir is witnessing a boom in the small online businesses with a lot of young women entrepreneurs – particularly – selling clothes and other merchandise using Facebook and Instagram, FastBeetle is solution to their daily logistic issues.
