Founded in 2014, Rivigo has been at the forefront of transforming the sector with their global-first relay trucking model and a strong interplay of technology, data, culture and operations excellence to consistently provide unparalleled delivery times and reliability to their clients. The model also helps ensure that every truck driver, who is referred to as a pilot, now spends less time away from his family, thereby leading a life of meaning, dignity and respect.
With a vision of transforming and uplifting the lives of 100,000 pilots, Rivigo aims to provide exceptional customer service with every delivery while contributing to the growth and success of small entrepreneurs and their partners. Post pandemic, they’re transitioning from an asset-heavy model to a low-asset model with Relay-as-a-Service (RaaS).
RaaS is a unique full-stack tech platform with the relay trucking model at the center, providing end-to-end consignment deliveries that are faster, safer and more reliable. It will allow small entrepreneurs in the logistics space to maximise their resources and unlock high growth potential. The relay model will continue to ensure that truck pilots change after every few hundred kilometers of driving, so that all pilots return to their families every single day. This helps them combat substance abuse, social disrespect, safety hazards, and poor health conditions while also ensuring efficiency as it offers air equivalent transit time, higher asset utilisation, and 4X safety than industry.
