Top seven ondemand truck operators and aggregators in India
In 2015 there were more than ten ondemand truck operators in India; out of these some six plus have closed shops, since 2016, primarily because of not raising enough Angel or VC capital.
The ones which are still in business are listed below for you to use in your manufacturing, distribution, trading, retailing or ecommerce business to save costs thus increasing sales and profits.
Long Haul and Big Trucks
Rivigo (launched in 2014 and previously known as TrucksFirst) lowers transit times for deliveries by 50 to 70 percent. Founder Deepak Garg tells Flexspace that the company’s goal is to make sure that long-haul road shipping is just as quickly and reliably as shipments by plane.
Rivigo operates its own fleet of trucks and one of the main ways it differentiates from competitors is tracking the amount of time most drivers can stay on the road before they get too tired to operate a vehicle safely.
It uses those numbers to create a relay system so drivers can end their shift and hand their truck off without interrupting Rivigo’s 24-hour route operations. Each operator has a smartphone app that automatically clocks them in when they get into a truck and keeps track of their hours and mileage.
This innovative ‘driver relay’ model ensures Rivigo that its delivery people, aptly referred to as our pilots, live a life of fulfilment, dignity and respect. Each of its pilots now spends less time away from their families, helping them lead a meaningful and well-balanced life.
