    Respected Publisher
    This is a very good and useful website to get information about Odisha. I have an event for you to publish in this website. Please go through it.

    We are an engineering team of Bhubaneswar.
    We left our job in 2009 and started doing business in Bhubaneswar. Initially we have started an IT organisation. We got many huddels in our way like financial problem, pressure from our family, pressure from our established friends and pressure from our competitors. But we tried and succied in increasing our staff from 4 to 20 with in 3 years.

    Then after we started an On Demand Delivery team. First of it’s kind in India. . it’s main purpose is send and receive packages locally in as little as 60 minutes. Not only packages but also medicines, bill deposited, document collection, grocery, food, vegetables, evin if you forgot your office key in your home, we collect it from your home and handover to you. Our parcel booking is also open for retailers and shopkeeper owners. They can also subscribe a monthly delivery of parcels from our side.
    We have an App in android store in the name of Local Cargo. If you hire us then their are a lot of profits for you like on time delivery, low cost delivery, delivery tracking system, and more important is that you don’t need to hire delivery boys directly for you and no need to controll them.

    If you think this topic is useful for Bhubaneswar then you can publish this topic in your website.
    Thank you.
