Against the average distance of 15 km per hour by the industry, their technological and operational innovations have ensured that their truck covers 40 km or more in an hour. This enables them to provide the faster services, on Indian road conditions, overcoming delays at numerous checkpoints across 29 states in the country. They serve Apparel & lifestyle, Food & Dairy products, auto components, pharmaceuticals, e-commerce, electronics, consumer goods. The Startup has also raised INR 200 Cr in December last year as round B.”
