Delhivery has assured investors that it is on the path to recovery. The company said it has made “sufficient capacity investments in FY22 and early FY23 to sustain our current rate of growth and expect new mega-gateway and sorter decisions only by early FY24.”

“As inflationary pressures and service disruptions due to monsoon ease across the country we expect improvement in volumes, revenue and service margins going forward,” it said in its quarterly report published on the local stock exchanges.
