BENGALURU: The success of mobile app-based cab aggregators in the city have opened avenues for other transport services. Now, commercial vehicle aggregators too are looking to tap the demand for intra-city delivery of goods.

Among the firms that are offering services in the city include theKarrier and the Porter. While the former is based in Bengaluru, the latter is based out of Mumbai. Customers are also provided with an option to hire labour for shift of goods.

The cost of the services offered varies for the type of vehicles booked by customers. Commercial vehicles under the service vary from mini trucks to bigger goods vehicles. Customers can book the vehicles from the aggregators on the webpage of the company, through phone or by using their apps.

Speaking to Express, Bipul Deora, senior manager and head of operations in Bengaluru of thePorter.in, said the company has recorded an exponential growth in the three months of its operations in the city.

“It works just like the cab aggregators. By using the app, customers can track the vehicle and also know the time required for the vehicle to reach their location,” he said.
