FarEye, the global leader in last mile delivery technology powering the world’s largest furniture, meal-kit, apparel, home electronics, retailers and logistics companies celebrated its 10th Foundation Day anniversary. To commemorate this occasion and address the industry’s pressing need for skilled resources, FarEye launched ‘Field Pro’, a skill training program offered completely free of charge. Shortage of skilled resources is one of the biggest problems the industry is facing currently. According to a recent survey, there is a shortage of over 2.6 Mn people globally. FarEye’s ‘Field Pro’ initiative is designed to equip aspiring professionals with the essential expertise, comprehensive technical training and practical knowledge required to thrive in the logistics sector.
The inauguration of the ‘Field Pro’ program took place in the esteemed presence of industry dignitaries, including:

- Mr. Pawan Agarwal: IAS, Special Secretary, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Former CEO of FSSAI.

The honorable guests also participated in a panel discussion titled ‘Built To Last: Technology, Platform and Companies’ sharing their entrepreneurial journeys, perspectives on building scalable platforms, leading industry transformation and multi-stakeholder collaboration sparking meaningful conversations and inspiring collective action.
Commenting on the occasion, Kushal Nahata (CEO & Co-founder, FarEye) said “With a steadfast focus on driving digital transformation, enhancing driver efficiency, and providing superior delivery experiences, we are committed to making deliveries better for everyone and this is merely the beginning for us. Today, FarEye’s platform facilitates over 2.5 million daily deliveries worldwide, these deliveries not only are on-time and cost-efficient, they are also contributing to a substantial reduction of approximately 7.51 million metric tons of carbon emissions.”
FarEye was founded by Kushal Nahata (CEO), Gautam Kumar (COO) and Gaurav Srivastava (CTPO) in 2013 with a vision of democratizing efficient deliveries for businesses globally. The FarEye story commenced in tandem with the rise of e-commerce in India, where the team noticed that customers enjoyed excellent online shopping experiences. However, the post-purchase experience was often flawed, especially in last-mile delivery. The founders set on mission to empower companies to deliver delightful experiences to their end-consumers. Since then, it has been a phenomenal journey leading the company to now serve over 150 customers across 30 countries, powering deliveries worth multi-billion dollars to move across the globe with complete visibility and reach end consumers on time, every time.
FarEye’s 10th Foundation Day marks a significant milestone for the company, which has expanded its presence in the Americas, Europe, and Australia region, collaborating with industry leaders such as Gordon Foods, Posti, and Couriers Please. Looking ahead, FarEye is committed to nurturing future talent in the logistics sector through its ‘Field Pro’ initiative. By empowering aspiring professionals with skill-based training, FarEye seeks to contribute significantly to the growth and success of the logistics industry.
