“The funding will act as a boost to our global expansion efforts as we amplify our team size specifically in North America and continue to build our IP,” said Locus CEO Nishith Rastogi.

Locus uses artificial intelligence to offer services such as route optimisation, real-time order tracking, dynamic sales plans and automated shipment sorting to enterprises.

“We believe the trillion-dollar global logistics market is ripe for disruption via technological change, particularly AI and machine learning-driven solutions,” said Navroz Udwadia, cofounder, Falcon Edge Capital.
