  • About Rivigo

    never been done


    Logistics is the largest addressable market globally. It is a USD 2 trillion industry, which is about 20X the cab market

    revenue pool. The challenges it presents are also far more futuristic than most other industries.


    Founded in 2014 and listed among the world’s top emerging businesses, RIVIGO is bringing alive the power of

    technology to provide ‘relay’ as a service on a unified logistics platform which ensures 50-70% reduction in

    turnaround time and highest reliability for clients, helping them reinvent their business models-serving new

    markets, reducing inventory and significantly cutting costs.


    Grounded in the mission of making logistics human, we have fundamentally changed the truck driver’s

    job from a ‘months-away-from-home’ job to a ‘day’ job. Unlike conventional truck drivers, relay pilots

    drive from pitstop to pitstop (under 300 kms) and return to their families the same day, thus, creating

    huge social dividend.  

    About the Role

    Why Rivigo Labs?


    Technology is at the core of our vision. For anyone looking at limitless opportunities of creating impact through

    futuristic technology applications while being around stunning colleagues who think big, bold and first-principle,

    RIVIGO Labs is the place to be.
