The company is witnessing a significant growth in adoption of its solution with the pan-India deployment of their hardware & software solution by industry giants such as HPCL, Maruti Suzuki, Hero Motors to name a few for their end-to-end logistics optimization.
Speaking about the funding, Ravi Bulusu, Managing Director, Enmovil Solutions Private Limited said, “We are absolutely thrilled to have the new investors onboard our growth journey.
