Celcius, a cold-chain start-up, intends to offer solutions for cold-storage warehousing and reefer logistics. The company is using top-notch technology for ensuring accountability of shipment’s safety during transit, right from the booking stage till delivery. Celcius comes with an app-based and web platform that intends to verify the shippers & transporters before they sign-up with the brand.
The platform has centralized the booking aspects and helps collate all of the data within a single system. While someone books Celcius for transportation needs, the customers get the liberty to check both thermal conditions as well as the real-time location of their shipment. Apart from that, Celcius also offers a multi-location and multi-temperature pickup/drop facility.
Not just that, but the company also has a rating system for the shippers and transporters for rating the services. And one can also use the online bidding system within the app for negotiating the price. Within a very short span of time, the company did experience massive growth. To date, they have transported across 10,000 tonnes of perishable goods from different sectors such as agricultural produce, dairy, pharma, seafood, vaccines, and others, across 93 cities of India.
Celcius has also offered abroad services to import fruits and seafood from outside India. Celcius has a big client base that includes names such as Gadre Marine, Reliance Pharma, Vadilal, Dominos, IB Group, SpiceJet, and others. The company is completely dependent upon IoT technologies. Swarup Bose, the Founder, and CEO of Celcius, has more than 18 years of experience in this field. He says that he is very much passionate about digitizing the cold logistics chain in India.
The company is operating with the best IoT devices such as door sensors, GPS, temperature sensors, and other such inclusions to the vehicle. Hence, the inclusion of these sensors allows the owners to get immediate alerts in case any mishap occurs during the transit of some order. The software of Celcius supports geotagging every vehicle, which helps the team at the control center to track the vehicle at all moments until they reach the destination point.
If an intruder tries to open the door forcefully, or if the transporter takes a different route, the sensors will alert the team at the control center. The team at the hub intends to do all of the groundwork before the shippers get along with the products to transport them to the destination. The software of this company is what makes this brand stand out in the crowd.
The customers are getting all of the updates about their orders through the application. And that is what gives them a sense of peace. The company was launched in 2020, and due to the pandemic situation, it was difficult for the founders to reach out to shippers and transporters. The company tried to explain to people about the business through video calls, which was itself a challenge.
