The logistics industry is the biggest driving force of the Indian economy, contributing 14% to India’s GDP. India needs 1 million new truck drivers every year for the next 10 years to support this ecosystem and achieve our GDP growth aspiration.

It is estimated that India will have 480 drivers for every 1,000 trucks on the road by 2022.

The problem is not in the truck driver’s income or skill gaps but is deep rooted in his terrible lifestyle away from his family. Long periods of absence leading to social disrespect, stigma and a risk perception of the job which makes their families push them to quit their job.

Truck drivers play a vital role in freight transportation industry but unfortunately, drivers don’t get their fair share of economic growth. At Rivigo, we are working relentlessly to build a system which strives to improve their socio-economic conditions through the following measures.

Improving Quality of Life and Instilling Pride

From ‘months away from home’ to ‘a day job’

The relay model helps over 95% of the pilots get back home every day and spend quality time with their families.

Respect at work

All pilots are respected for their sincerity, dedication and contribution towards nation building.

Technology enabled

The entire operational cycle of duty, digital documentation, legal aspects of their employment, e-ID card, welfare and benefits of the pilots are at their fingertips through the ‘Pilot App’.

Pitstops for Rest

Facilities along the route play a very pivotal role in building pride in our pilots. It gives them a safe, clean and comfortable place to rest.

Regular Payouts

The rampant lack of visibility and predictability of cash disbursements to truck drivers is resolved by direct and regular payout in their bank accounts.

Financial Planning and Security

Pilots are educated on financial schemes enabling them to plan for a secure financial future.

Health Benefits

Unforeseen medical issues are managed by offering comprehensive health plans for pilots and their families.

Home Loans

Pilots can avail schemes which prequalify them for home loans and help them build their own house to lead a fulfilling family life.

Scholarship Programmes

With an aim to give wings of education to our pilots' kids, we have the best teams to guide and assist parents in clearing the interviews and exams.

Cashless Operations

Keeping the safety of pilots and easy reconciliation of all transactions in mind, all monetary transactions are made through an ATM card given to the pilot.
