NEW DELHI: Reliance Industries has identified last-mile delivery as the biggest challenge for its planned online marketplace venture and will focus on nurturing this aspect of the business, where rivals Flipkart and Amazon have asignificant head-start, sources said.

“Last-mile delivery and the overall customer experience are going to be priority areas for Reliance,” a source said, asking not to be identified. Reliance plans to invest heavily to build a robust supply chain, including its own delivery logistics, and will also use third-party companies as “it wants to take ownership of delivery and experience,” the source said.
