Today I’m joined by FarEye, a cutting-edge logistics tech company that is on a mission to make logistics across the world more efficient, predictive and organized, through the use of new technology.
FarEye’s Intelligent Delivery Management Platform is making the delivery experience better for everyone, and enabling enterprises to deliver at reduced cost with a superior customer experience. Founded in 2013, the platform leverages millions of data points to predict the shipment journey and improve the delivery experience for hundreds of businesses in over 30 countries worldwide.
Today Kushal Nahata, Co-founder and CEO at FarEye, joins me to chat all about the company: what they do, the challenges of last-mile delivery, reducing your carbon footprint while cutting costs, and why, in the e-commerce industry, experience is the new loyalty.
IN THIS EPISODE WE DISCUSS:
