Our mission is to

build the logistics infrastructure to transform commerce in India.

How we do it

We’ve built an intelligent operating system that includes a technology platform, an on ground control tower, and a digital freight network. Together, they streamline every step of the logistics process. TMS and visibility platforms provide much-required tracking and E2E digitization, harness efficiencies and reduce waste. The control tower solves exceptions live and proactively. The digital freight network builds transparent price discovery, provides access to nationwide transport companies and optimizes freight flows to reduce empty miles. This combination has made Freight Tiger India’s largest and rapidly growing freight network today. With our help, enterprise customers across industries are able to move material to their customers with full visibility, predictability and speed, all at lower cost. Even SMEs (including transport companies) that had limited infrastructure and reach are now able to swiftly expand into new markets.

We’re the only ones who can do it

Because we’ve taken a systems approach. For more established shippers, our end-to-end effectiveness changes logistics from a painful cost center to a competitive advantage. For SMEs and transport companies, we fundamentally change the business landscape by catalyzing growth in ways previously impossible. Our neutrality ensures that we create economic value for everyone in the ecosystem - we’re well on our way to making a GDP-level impact.

Our story so far

It’s been a long journey but we wouldn’t change it for the world.

2017

Let there be Visibility

Swapnil Shah founded Freight Tiger, pioneering the model of bringing visibility into market trucks in India through a technology with our visibility platform. We quickly and successfully launched with four major customers. We raised a seed round in April 2017 and the first tranche of our institutional capital from Lightspeed India in October 2017.

2018

Fired up, Ready to Grow

Team Freight Tiger expanded from 40 to 100, with a new office in Bangalore. We launched a unified platform - putting maket-trucks and owned-trucks on the same platform for the first time!

More than just Visibility

We realised that visibility alone will not solve the systemic, interconnected issues in the logistics industry. If we wanted to make real change, we would have to put on our “systems thinking” hats and offer an end to end solution.

2019

Seamless is the Way

On the back of strong industry insights, we developed a TMS Lite for emerging markets. It has everything that you need for growth through logistics - from planning and to procurement, to 100% visibility, to e-pod and payments.

2020

#Unlockthefuture

We launched our Digital Freight Network - a single interface to manage contracted or spot freight and capacity in real time. We tied it to our TMS to keep moving towards an end-to-end offering. 2% of India’s full truck load moved through us.

2021

Digitisation in logistics

We grew to a family of 300+ members, 60+ shippers, and 4000+ transport companies/Logistics Service Providers. 4% of FTL in India moved through us. We raised 8.5M USD to accelerate the launch of our Digital Freight Network.

2022

Logistics infrastructure to Transforming commerce

This is the year where our integrated visibility, TMS platform and Digital Freight Network gives us an opportunity to build logistics infrastructure to transform commerce. Stay tuned to hear more!

Our Operating Principles

diary icon

We are customer-centric

We recognise that in order to be successful, we don’t just have to understand our customers, but our customer’s customers. We own outcomes for everyone along the value chain, proactively addressing needs and pain points better than anyone else

molecule icon

We maintain neutrality

Unlike many, FT was founded on the principle of neutrality. We always consider and balance the interests of our partners and customers across the ecosystem, bringing transformation for all, no matter big or small.

headphone icon

We have a bias for action

We don’t need conditions to be perfect to get started. Being first matters, so we move fast, take calculated risks and iterate as we go.

molecule icon

We work in first principles

Our fundamentals are strong. We approach our work with a “shoshin”, beginner’s mind, coming up with innovative solutions based on core truths. We use data to inform our strategy, making sure to address root causes instead of treating symptoms.

headphone icon

The best idea wins

At FT, there is no hierarchy when it comes to ideas. We’re committed to doing the best for the organization and its people, which involves healthy debate. However, once a decision is taken, we set aside personal opinions and work to create a successful outcome.

diary icon

We never give up

We are unapologetically relentless. We enjoy solving tough problems, experimenting with new approaches and leapfrogging over obstacles until we get it done.

headphone icon

We are micro-pessimists but macro-optimists *

On a day to day basis, we are skeptical; we focus on our weaknesses and question our ideas. However, we never lose sight of the bigger picture: we believe deeply in what FT is doing, and are unfailingly optimistic about the heights we can achieve.

diary icon

We take ownership

We feel personally responsible for any project that passes through our hands, even if we are not leading it. We never say “that’s not my job”; instead we do whatever is required to ensure the end result is of the highest standard.

molecule icon

We’re always hungry to learn, know and be more

We get excited about new opportunities that push us out of our comfort zones. We leave our egos at the door, seeking alternative perspectives instead of defending our own.
