SAN FRANCISCO — March 30, 2022 — Supply & Demand Chain Executive, a leading publication focused on supply chain solutions and trends, has named Nishith Rastogi, founder and CEO of Locus, in its annual 2023 Pros to Know award list. For over 20 years, the Pros to Know list has spotlighted outstanding executives across the industry who are leading the charge on supply chain and logistics transformation and whose accomplishments serve as a valuable roadmap to others.
Against high-stakes consumer demands – enterprises today must optimize their Last-Mile logistics strategies in new and effective ways that set them apart from the competition, strengthen brand loyalty, and contribute to bottom lines. Since 2015, Nishith and the Locus team have enabled this reality for clients across geographies – including Unilever, Tata Group, Nestle, Good Food, Bulakapak, and more – by cultivating an organization with innovation in its DNA and the unique vision for solving the most challenging last-mile logistics problems of today and tomorrow.
Under Nishith’s leadership, Locus has experienced tremendous growth and momentum over the last year alone. The company has expanded its presence in Mexico and the Middle East, further deepened its existing foothold in the U.S. and Indonesian markets and introduced solutions that establish Last-Mile logistics as a revenue generator for 3PLs, carriers, and retail brands across the world. This includes the launch of Locus’ Order-to-Delivery Dispatch Management Platform along with several key integrations: Locus’ Delivery Linked Checkout (DLC), Locus’ Last-Mile Maturity Assessment Tool, and most recently, Shipflex.
“It’s such an honor to be recognized as a 2023 Pros to Know by SDCE,” said Nishith Rastogi, founder and CEO of Locus. “I’m incredibly passionate about identifying and addressing pain points our customers experience daily and unlocking opportunities in ways they never thought possible. I also have the privilege of working alongside a team that shares in my unwavering dedication to advancing this industry forward. While we’ve experienced great success, we’re just getting started.”
“This year’s list is filled with supply chain professionals whose achievements and success stories have helped move the needle in the supply chain. They promote safety, sustainability and workforce development. They work toward helping heal the supply chain. They’re actually in the supply chain,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics. “We received close to 400 nominations this year, the highest number of nominations ever for this award. It’s proof that today’s supply chain professionals are doing great things for the supply chain. They embody what a true leader should be. And, without their initiatives, programs and collaborative efforts, today’s supply chains would be in worse shape.”
