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.

Commenting on the occasion, Kushal Nahata 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.”

Congratulating the team, Ms.Padmaja Ruparel said “Having seen the journey of  hundreds of Indian startups I can say that the ones that endure and succeed are those with a solid foundation, FarEye being one of them. Given the current global economic challenges, FarEye has conitued to grow and scale. It is a testament to the company’s resilience and adherence to strong business principles.” 

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.

Congratulatory wishes from guests:

It exemplifies how FarEye has managed to overcome the odds and establish itself as a resilient and impactful player in the market.”
