Locus has come a long way from its origin as a women’s safety application to a leading logistics optimization platform. In 2015, Nishith Rastogi and Geet Garg developed RideSafe, a women’s safety geo-tracking app to track deviations from pre-defined ride routes.
It was soon adopted by food tech companies to track deviations of their delivery staff. This gave Nishith and Geet material insight that there was clearly a lack of a decision-making system in logistics. This realization was the pivotal foresight that led to Locus, a real-world ready dispatch management platform for last-mile excellence.
