Started by a bunch of IIT alumni, Rocketbox is a Mumbai based aggregation and analytics platform for Intra-city logistics, that lets you book pick-up trucks, through their website, mobile app or phone call, for transporting materials from one city to the other.

Logistics is a 200 billion dollar market in India alone and comprises about 14% of the national GDP. It’s obvious from the numbers that it is seemingly complex and gigantic in scale. Rocketbox leverages technology to convert this seemingly complex process into a simple intuitive interface for the end user, and removes human involvement wherever possible. Users can request vehicles at the click of a button, track, pay and access invoices all on their app.

As the end user, you’d be required to declare a few details including pick-up location, drop point, type of vehicle and  the time, following which you’d be informed about the standardized charges. Once that’s settled, a registered driver from the nearest checkpoint will reach at your pick-up destination in 30 minutes.
