Initially, PackMeUp was bestowed with too many work hazards, as the concept was new and the unavailability of the experienced lot in the group proved costly to the group which was new to the field. This exposed them to too many problems they were unaware of. As there was no other existing model present to look at for it was difficult to run the firm initially. The model required international tie-ups and legalities; PackMeUp’s team faced multiple challenges with respect to communication gap and different corporate cultures.
