Artificial Intelligence for Punjab’s logistics trade

Bengaluru-based Vahak, a transport platform enabled by AI, has expanded its operations and user base in Punjab. This digital community enables direct connections between all logistics players, fostering India’s largest ecosystem of transport SMEs and lorry owners. Speaking about this growth since the pandemic, Karan Shaha, CEO, and Co-founder at Vahak said, “Using the Vahak app, Punjab truckers were able to function even during the pandemic, making critical supplies available. Now, they are witnessing up to 25-26 days of inter and intrastate runs as compared to 15-17 days earlier. This has resulted in consistent growth in our user base over the last year with load postings showing a 100 percent increase and lorry posting going up by over 40 percent. We are seeing the highest demand coming in for containers, trucks, and LCVs.”
