Vishal Jain and Rahul Mehra, co-Founders, Roadcast
Roadcast’s biggest strength is offering e-commerce logistics or hyper-local last-mile logistics, and a wide range of customizable tools to automate entire work-flows. "Amongst other things, we make it easier to deploy fleet management and logistics solutions at scale," aver Vishal Jain & Rahul Mehra, co-Founders, Roadcast.

How are Cloud computing and AI bringing efficiencies in Supply Chain Management?
Cloud computing and AI are helping business scale operations in crunched time by augmenting customer support, supplier selection based on past performance, real-time tracking of shipments and personnel and anticipating consumer behaviour changes, and operational trends.

Supply chains gather and generate Big Data, which is then converted to insights by Cloud computing and AI. This segmentation of big data into understandable insights has transformed how supply chains operate and it continues to evolve and get even more precise and complex with time.

Besides this, robotics and automated processes are forecasted to grow in the coming years. With the entire world connected digitally, the sectors are getting competitive to the point that companies are looking to shave off even excessive seconds in a process. This is where robotics is stepping in. Robotic technology applications include automated vehicles like drones, trucks, and trains, last-mile deliveries and storage and retrieval systems to increase efficiency and productivity, reduce re-work and risk rate, improve employee safety, and increase revenue.

What are the fleet management services offered by Roadcast?
Roadcast provides a highly comprehensive platform that combines the power of IoT for vehicle tracking and a seamlessly connected driver application for delivery uberization. We are giving optimization, visibility, and connectivity, and providing coordination solutions from a single point or a centralized location, perfectly connected to the entire place.

We help delivery-based businesses by providing them with robust, scalable and cost-effective solutions to automate operations. Our Delivery and Order Management Software offers enterprises a reliable platform with information such as pick-up & delivery scheduling, image recognition, auto-route optimization, audio/video surveillance, distance to the recipient, estimated time of arrival, and more.

Roadcast’s technology can be applied to businesses offering logistics & transportation, electric mobility, food, courier & parcel delivery. With Roadcast solutions, customers can build fast-growing delivery teams that can be remotely managed along with cost optimization across various workflows.

Roadcast Technology Managing Seamless Transportation

How does Roadcast help in Dockyard and Parking Management?
Dockyard and Parking currently are largely handled manually. At most facilities, there is still a heavy dependency on registrations in black and white. Where we come in is that we automate the process. This makes it easier to access historical data for analysis and eliminates human error and inefficiency. Automated exit and entry help the supervisor as well give a bird’s eye-view of the entire operation. Inefficiencies like delays on the dock, lingering and any sudden delays can be taken care of in real-time. Automated hub and parking facilities also aid in seamless parking as drivers have real-time insight into space availability.

How does Roadcast assist in route optimization for ODCs?
We offer route optimization based on the capacity of a vehicle, the distance that needs to be optimized, and time optimization. Besides this, we provide riders point-to-point navigation for a hassle-free delivery drive.

With our technology, we analyze and collect data on road conditions, traffic conditions, customer availability, stores’ working hours, adherence to delivery time, customer feed-back etc. This helps the business access the data in real-time and analyze it to reduce costs by fuel optimization, time optimization, and eliminating human error and inefficiency.

One of the key offerings from Roadcast is load balancing. Equal order distribution amongst riders not only benefits the delivery partners but also helps businesses by making sure that delivery timelines are met with minimal cost and time.

How does Roadcast help in setting up customizable payout models?
Businesses today - both startups and established - outsource their logistics. To achieve the same, a company could choose to work with different vendors involved in the various processes in a supply chain offering individual pricing depending on geographical locations, order quantity, type of vehicle, rider availability, etc. For every payout cycle, there would need to be an assessment for each vendor, which would eventually add to the workload.

With Roadcast and our tech tools in place, we provide clients with end-to-end visibility and a user-friendly interface for such tedious tasks with a predetermined cost bracket for processes. This reduces discrepancies and manual errors, making it easier to coordinate and collaborate with different vendors for maximum cost and time optimization.

Please name some of your major clients.
Roadcast technology has been implemented at the intersection of 3 major global investment verticals: last-mile hyperlocal delivery, vehicle fleet management, and e-commerce logistics.
