Rivigo to tre­ble truck fleet to 3,000

Cargo Talk - - Warehousing -

Eye­ing a larger mar­ket share, lo­gis­tics solutions provider Rivigo is bank­ing on ‘drivers re­lay sys­tem’ for faster de­liv­ery of goods and is look­ing to take its truck­ing fleet to 3,000 this fis­cal. The firm, which has a fleet of 800 trucks, claims that based on its in­no­va­tive ‘drivers re­lay sys­tem’, truck loads are de­liv­ered to Chennai from Delhi in two days in­stead of con­ven­tional eight days.

“We started work­ing on the ‘Driver Re­lay Model’ wherein we change over the drivers af­ter ev­ery few hun­dred kms. This im­proves the turn­around time and ser­vice lev­els,” said, Deepak Garg, CEO, Rivigo. By drivers re­lay, the com­pany made sure drivers got back home on the same day (or within 24 hours) and thereby, saved 50-70 per cent of the turn-around time on long-haul routes.

To drive ef­fi­ciency, vis­i­bil­ity and cost sav­ing for the cus­tomer, Adani Lo­gis­tics Lim­ited (ALL) is au­tomat­ing its op­er­a­tions. And has se­lected Kale Lo­gis­tics as its pre­ferred part­ner to de­velop a Ter­mi­nal Op­er­at­ing Sys­tem (TOS). This would en­com­pass ALL’s en­tire range of op­er­a­tions in­clud­ing, CFS and ICD, con­tainer train op­er­a­tions, coil and auto lo­gis­tics and other al­lied pro­cesses.

The BRD doc­u­ment de­vel­oped by ALL cap­tured in de­tail the ex­ist­ing and ‘to be pro­cesses’, in­cor­po­rat­ing best prac­tices of the in­dus­try. Anil Radhakrishnan, CEO, Adani Lo­gis­tics, said, “Kale dis­played the best un­der­stand­ing of our re­quire­ments and has one of the widest port­fo­lios of proven lo­gis­tics IT solutions.” Ash­wani Ku­mar Sharma, Head In­for­ma­tion and Tech­nol­ogy, Adani Lo­gis­tics, said, “Since this is a long term in­vest­ment for our busi­ness, we had done a de­tailed ‘Busi­ness Re­quire­ment Doc­u­ment’ from our side. The new sys­tem meets all th­ese re­quire­ments and pro­vides data reser­voir at both man­age­ment and op­er­a­tional lev­els for faster de­ci­sion mak­ing.”

Vi­neet Mal­ho­tra, Di­rec­tor, Kale Lo­gis­tics Solutions, said that the com­pany shares the same vi­sion as the Adani group. It also aims at cre­at­ing a world class
