The business can also allocate multiple orders to a single rider. In such cases, the app shows the rider the optimized route to complete his deliveries in the quickest time. The riders can also enable or disable their availability.

The business has to assign a task to the rider by adding details of the order like customer name, address, location, amount of order, type of order (prepaid/postpaid), etc.
Request Third Party Rider

So, if your business doesn't have in-house riders, you can leverage the already existing fleet of riders from brands like Dunzo or Rapido. Request the rider in real-time and get an upfront cost for the delivery of that particular order.
