But on the operational front, the performance has been improving and analysts have turned bullish on the company. Delhivery is among the largest logistics players in India with full-stack solutions across the value chain. Its scale, deep network, and technology capabilities allow the company to optimise costs of delivery, and hence, gain market share, said JM Financial Institutional Securities.

It has initiated coverage on the stock with a “hold” rating on the stock and a target price of Rs 350.

Delhivery has also entered into mutually beneficial partnerships with large international players such as Aramex and FedEx, which enables it to expand its reach outside India by leveraging its networks without having to incur additional fixed costs, the brokerage said.
