National Freight Index (NFI) launched

National Freight Index (NFI) launched

In its bid to bring transparency in the road-freight marketplace, Gurgaon-based tech-enabled logistics start-up Rivigo has launched National Freight Index (NFI) that will provide live freight rates for different lanes and vehicles across the country.

NFI

  • This first-of-its-kind barometer of the road freight market in India is based on a Rivigo rate exchange.
  • NFI gives a live spot rate on over 7 million lane and vehicle type combinations in the country.
  • NFI offers an aggregated picture of both live rates and historical trends of spot price movements in the road freight industry.
  • The index is represented in two main forms: In terms of actual freight rates condensed to INR per ton-km and in terms of relative movement with respect to a base month.
  • Both the index and the exchange are based on Rivigo’s machine learning and economics powered pricing algorithms, which are continuously improving on accuracy.
  • The rates on the exchange and index are computed using millions of data points from historical transactions, current market dynamics, micro market insights and other factors – with the ultimate purpose of giving a fair and precise representation of the state of the spot market in the country.
