Rivigo to treble truck fleet to 3,000
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.
