Product/Service Summary

Junkart is an on-demand scrap collection service which connects all the stake-holders in scrap recycling supply chain.
When a seller raises a new scrap pickup request, it is forwarded to nearby vendor’s on their Junkart app, who can then accept it and visit the seller’s place at the scheduled time. Vendor then records the items bought by him on the app, which calculates the price and shows how much amount the vendor should pay to the seller. This amount then can be deducted digitally from the vendor’s account linked with Junkart app.
The transparent pricing and inventory management system helps the vendors keep an eye on their inventory and track profit. Junkart also helps connect vendors with large quantity traders and recycling units. The data acquired in process is highly useful for recycling units in implementing Kanban based supply management system and urban planners to help them make critical operational and strategic decisions.
