Rivigo, a technology-enabled logistics company, launched Relay-as-a-Service (RaaS) last week. This first-of-its-kind service is based on Rivigo’s patented technological capability through which it has been operating relay for the past five years.
RaaS will be offered to fleet owners using its technology, pilots and countrywide network of relay pit-stops. Relay Trucking is an operating model where drivers change over after every few hundred kilometers of driving through a network of relay pit-stops and then get rostered back to their home base to return to their families every single day.
Commenting on the launch Gazal Kalra, co-founder, Rivigo, said, “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.”
Ramratan Singhi, owner of Sure Cargo Logistics testified, “RAAS – Relay as a Service model helps make trucking efficient. We achieved 25-30% extra running per month per truck through RaaS, compared to using our resources. Hub-hub TAT was excellent, and the use of tech in all aspects of operations (fuel, maintenance) is helping us see the areas of concern in our trucks.”
