Predictive logistics platform FarEye has made its Serve service free to provide contactless home deliveries for companies responding to the coronavirus outbreak.
The Indian startup is making its FarEye Serve product free to organizations making home deliveries of essential items until June 30; and for all deliveries to hospital sites and for food and medicine supplies to non-government organizations until September 30.
Services are being offered to Dr Lal Path Labs and Future Group in India, 7-Eleven in the Philippines and Posti Group in Finland.
FarEye is looking at working with More Retail in India, Mega Image in Romania and Konzum in Croatia among others.
Lockdowns are putting pressure on home deliveries with retailers and delivery companies struggling to scale their operations.
Kushal Nahata, CEO of FarEye, said, “This pandemic has put a mandatory reset button on all of us and is pushing everyone to reflect and realize how everything is temporary and fragile.
“We want to lean in and do our bit by offering our optimization technology as a support to ensure seamless movement of essential goods in the midst of this crisis.”
FarEye Serve enables partners to increase coverage through intelligent routing; provide contactless delivery with a wallet-enabled app; onboard temporary staff quickly; provide a smartphone app for drivers; and make operations live.
