Thailand, April, 2020 - Zilingo, today, announced their support for sellers and customers amidst the COVID-19 outbreak by reintroducing essential goods and household items along with free shipping services on its supply chain platform, Zilingo Trade.
Zilingo’s primary business model has been its fashion supply chain capabilities with FMCG taking a backseat. However, with the pandemic crisis leading to nationwide social distancing measures and increased demand for online groceries, Zilingo has stepped up and re-stocked essential goods and household items on its platform.
To ease logistical difficulties and reduce costs for sellers on its platform, Zilingo will continue its free shipping initiative that first started in January 2020. The free shipping service helps sellers stay afloat and pass cost savings on to customers, encouraging them to shop for essential goods from the safety of their homes. As a token of appreciation and gratitude, Zilingo customers can also expect to receive joyful greeting cards along with with their purchases.
“Zilingo is committed to helping our customers and sellers through this difficult time, especially for small and medium-sized businesses that need to capitalise on online sales in order to stay afloat. Every bit helps and we hope that these initiatives will encourage shoppers to stay home for their health and safety,” says Poompong Tancharoenphol, Country Manager of Thailand, Zilingo.
Zilingo is working on leveraging its supply chain capabilities to connect customers to wholesale factories and will also be sourcing for health and safety products like masks and hand sanitizers that will soon be made available on Zilingo Trade.
Zilingo is a technology platform that powers the entire fashion supply chain. It was founded in 2015 by Ankiti Bose and Dhruv Kapoor with a vision to use technology to put responsible and efficient business within everyone’s reach. The fashion industry is dominated by a select few - favoring only those with social, human and financial capital. At Zilingo, we believe the future of fashion belongs to everyone. By using smart, technology-led solutions to bridge the gap between creators and producers, we’ve reimagined the fashion supply chain to make it fair, connected and transparent for all.
