Basic Information

Founded in August 2014 by Pranav Goel and Uttam Digga from IIT-Kharagpur and Vikas Choudhary from IIT-Kanpur, Porter allows businesses and consumers to hire trucks for their intra-city pick-up and delivery needs. Customers can book a truck by making a phone call to its call centre, or through an app. A truck reaches the customer within 30 minutes and he could track movement of the cargo. Its clients range from local shops to small and medium enterprises to large institutions. It currently serves ITC, Amazon, FedEx, Urban Ladder, Delhivery, TinyOwl and many more. Porter gets clients through customer care and its web page. Based on customers’ timing, and type of vehicle requirement, the nearest driver is allocated. This helps minimise idle time. Porter is present in six cities which include Mumbai, Delhi NCR, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Chennai and Ahmedabad. See more
