B2B logistics technology start-up, Freight Tiger, raised $8 Mn led by Lightspeed Venture Partners with participation from Alsthom Industries (one of the Dalmia Group Companies) and Pawan Munjal Family Trust.

The logistics space in India is ripe in India. With several start-ups doing exceedingly well in the sector including Delhivery, Rivigo, Locus, Blackbuks, Freightwalla etc, more and more such start-ups are grabbing the attention of investors. While Delhivery entered the unicorn club this year, the others are not far behind in the high-valuation game.

The Mumbai-based start-up was quoted as saying regarding the fund-raising, "The current fundraising round and investors' confidence strengthens our vision to build an operating system that powers the entire logistics and freight ecosystem." He further added he and his team are keen on building an internationally transformative company.

We look forward to partnering with the Freight Tiger team as they unlock new possibilities in one of the world's largest logistics markets."

Freight Tiger is a real time logistics visibility and collaboration technology platform. It also endeavours to provide visibility in freight transactions including shipments on market trucks and build a single version of truth for all the stakeholders involved.
