Looking for a business that technology has yet to disrupt? Former McKinsey & Co. consultant Deepak Garg senses a candidate in the world’s fastest-growing major economy.
Garg’s target is the fragmented trucking industry in India, whose freight transport market could be worth as much as South Africa’s economy by 2020. His two-year old company Rivigo Services Pvt. deploys Internet-connected trucks loaded with sensors that feed data to coders, who then try to work out how to cut travel times while improving reliability and customer experience.
