“Our EBITDA margins were temporarily affected through the integration phase with Spoton as a result of inherent seasonality in the PTL business, slightly slower than planned phasing of customer restarts, and retention of capacity to maintain service quality and in anticipation of H2 volumes”, said Abhik Mitra, Chief Customer Experience Officer, Delhivery and CEO of Spoton. 

H1 is the period during which we commission new capacity in preparation for seasonally higher volumes in H2. As PTL Freight volumes continue to recover and Express Parcel shipments continue to grow, we expect capacity utilisation to improve, said Ajith Pai, Chief Operating Officer, Delhivery.

Sahil Barua, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Delhivery, stated that the company continues to be “extremely well capitalised, with cash and investments of over Rs 6,000 crore as of June 30, 2022,” and will continue to “invest in building infrastructure, technology, and operational capacity to deliver high-quality service to our customers”.
