Delhi NCR: Rivigo, a logistics tech startup has appointed Prabhav Sharma as its new CEO for its Full Truck Load (FTL) business, effective March 16, 2022. Sharma’s appointment will provide leadership and strategic direction to scale Rivigo’s asset-light relay-as-a-service model to solve the challenges in India’s logistics sector.

Since 2014, Rivigo aims to lead the transformation of the logistics sector in India with its global-first relay trucking model that ensures that every truck driver spends less time away from his family, thereby leading a life of meaning, dignity and respect.

“It gives me immense pleasure to welcome a talented leader like Prabhav to our team. With Prabhav’s global experience in handling the supply chain industry across countries and expertise in improving productivity through technology-led solutions, he is best suited to lead Rivigo’s mission to transform the full truckload segment of the Indian logistics sector,” Rivigo’s Founder and CEO Deepak Garg commented on the appointment.

“With the success of the asset-light relay-as-a-service approach, I am bullish about implementing relay at scale, and I believe that we’ll be able to drive 100,000 trucks on relay while uplifting the lives of 100,000 pilots, with Prabhav at the helm,” added Garg.

The full truckload segment expects to bounce back in the changing market dynamics, putting behind some tough years in the past. Rivigo’s platform helps stitch the gaps by providing better truck economics to small operators, reliable supply to customers, and more dignified life for truck pilots.

“Rivigo’s mission to transform India’s logistics sector by making it human has always resonated with me at a deeper level. I’m thrilled to join this team of committed professionals who want to leverage technology and innovation to drive better truck utilisations while improving the lives of thousands of truck drivers. I hope together we can bring about the change this industry needs to fuel the country’s economic boom” said Prabhav Sharma, CEO-FTL, Rivigo.

Prior to joining Rivigo, Sharma led the digital consulting practice for McKinsey Asia. He holds an MBA degree from IIM Lucknow with a specialisation in Operations and Finance. He also has a B.Tech degree in Aerospace Engineering from IIT Mumbai.
