Rivigo

The World's Most Innovative Companies 2017

With 1,500 vehicles and 3,000 drivers, Indian trucking company Rivigo is as focused on getting goods from Point A to Point B as on getting them there in the most efficient way possible. The company devised sophisticated algorithms to plan routes, an innovation that has nearly tripled the distance its trucks cover per hour, from the industry average of 15 km per hour to 40 km per hour. Its algorithms also determine how to pack goods in a truck on a run to reduce breakage. To increase drivers’ job satisfaction and reduce their stress levels—by some estimates, India needs 1 million more truck drivers than are currently employed—Rivigo utilizes a relay system that aims to return drivers home within 24 hours.
