Rivigo, a Gurugram-based logistics startup, has started a Relay-as-a-Service (RaaS) to offer it relay trucking model to fleet owners and truck pilots in India.

Relay trucking is an operating model where drivers change over after every few hundred kilometres of driving through a network of relay pit-stops and then get rostered back to their home base.

“With RaaS, we aim to offer the benefits of relay trucking to millions of fleet owners in India and bring in efficiencies in the logistics industry while directly addressing one the biggest challenges of chronic truck driver shortage. In addition to the relay network, technology, and pilots, we will be making our fuel, maintenance, cashless payment solutions also available to fleet owners in the country through RaaS,” Gazal Kalra, co-founder at Rivigo, said.

Rivigo was founded by Gazal Kalra and Deepak Garg in 2014. The company owns and operates over 2,100 trucks and has a pan-India network across 150 locations.

It offers pan-India delivery services to ecommerce, pharmaceutical, automobile, cold-chain and fast-moving consumer goods companies. The company said it covers more than 29,000 pin codes in India.

The company claims that the model uses algorithms to develop intelligent driver allocation system that picks the driver for duty and allows equal driving hours, rest hours, and transit hours for drivers.

Interestingly, Rivigo’s system also records driving behaviour of the drivers.

The company said that RaaS will be offered to fleet owners using its technology, pilots and countrywide network of relay pit-stops.

Other players in the similar domain includes, Delhivery, BlackBuck, Locus, Locanix, ElasticRun, and many more.
