Patchy internet connectivity still roadblock for e-commerce in Andaman
In conversation with Apt Logistics' Director, Sabiha Mulla, STAT Media Group's Associate Editor Manjula Nair unravels the intricacies of express logistics and supply chain tangles in remote regions like the Andamans. Mulla's preliminary study about online shopping preferences in Port Blair began as a part of her doctoral research, and ultimately set into motion an e-commerce boom in the Andamans. Mulla's future blueprint for the Andaman region involves connecting residents in all the 36 islands in the region to the online shopping experience. Acording to Mulla, however, the biggest hurdles in her future strategy are infrastructure and internet connectivity.
