This SaaS-based logistics platform can be deployed by any company in any country and can be completely customised thanks to its intelligent software architecture and technology stack.
Speedbox platform has three interfaces: mobile apps, web-based login system and API integrations
With its robust and intelligent software architecture/technology stack, Speedbox can deploy Software-as-a-Service applications (SaaS) globally for any logistics/ operations company.
Nishit Dave, CEO, Speedbox, says, “Speedbox started off as an aggregation platform but we realised that it simply became a quick rate finder. We have evolved a lot over the last three years to focus on providing solutions to both shippers (customers) as well as logistics companies (“admins”). Anybody with 100 shipments a day is an ideal customer for us. No one in India is focusing on the smaller shippers for whom logistics is a real challenge, while remaining expensive.” The Speedbox platform has three interfaces: mobile apps, web-based login system and API integrations. The company was incorporated in 2014-end and is based in Mumbai with an international office in Malaysia. In India, they are active in nine cities – Delhi, Ahmedabad, Jaipur, Bengaluru, Mumbai, Kolkata, Kochi, Hyderabad and Coimbatore. The plan is to expand presence in 10 countries and be able to cover 40 cities in India within the next three years. DISRUPTOR OR ENABLER? While the core offering of Speedbox is technology-based, Dave clarifies that technology at the end of the day can only enable, it can’t really re-invent the way things are done. “There is a lot of human interaction in this industry and you cannot circumvent it. The only thing technology can do is automate and make things more efficient, at least in India, and this will happen in the next five years,” he says. Explaining how the software works,
Kabir Seth, Director, Speedbox, says, “We offer mobile applications for low volume shippers, and a dashboard for enterprise level shippers (high volume shippers). All shipments are synced across devices and platforms with a seamless user experience. We also create solutions for the so-called ‘offline’ logistics companies. It’s like a plugn-play for those particular companies.” Seth adds that Speedbox is now primarily looking to partner with established vendors.
“We believe that Southeast Asia is a really good market for us right now. We are also exploring the Middle East and the North American markets,” he reveals.
