Delhivery, India’s leading integrated supply chain services provider, has unveiled the activation of its OS1 stack in collaboration with The Akshaya Patra Foundation, the world’s largest NGO-driven school feeding initiative. Akshaya Patra will leverage the Dispatch One application to oversee meal distribution from its centralized kitchens to partner schools in cities like Bhubaneswar, Puducherry, Kuppam, Nellore, and Rourkela. The nationwide implementation, supporting approximately 2.1 million daily meals, is set to conclude by mid-2024.

Saanil Bhaskaran, COO at The Akshaya Patra Foundation, emphasized the significance of DispatchOne’s advanced capabilities in enhancing operational efficiency across their vast network of 72 cities and 24,000 schools. Real-time tracking and transparency in the delivery process will be instrumental in achieving cost reduction goals and directing resources to schools in need.

DispatchOne empowers Akshaya Patra to optimize resource allocation, enabling real-time tracking from central kitchens to partner schools. Kapil Bharti, Chief Technology Officer and Co-founder of Delhivery, expressed pride in leveraging cutting-edge technology through OS1 to support Akshaya Patra’s mission of providing daily meals to millions of school children. Delhivery plans to expand its OS1 product suite, including an end-to-end Transportation Management System set to launch later this year.
