Freight Tiger selects Snowflake to handle data of its logistics platform

The Indian end-to-end logistics network Freight Tiger announced a partnership with the United States-based cloud data platform Snowflake under which Freight Tiger will utilise Snowflake to integrate their data, and leverage insights for greater visibility of their business.

Freight Tiger required a platform to natively and seamlessly handle data from various sources, including semi-structured data, as it is planning to expand its business. The company eventually selected Snowflake’s cloud data platform to provide the performance, simplicity, flexibility, and concurrency needed for their data workloads. This gave Freight Tiger the access to both real-time information and visibility of their operations, giving them the leap needed to support their customers.

Jebu Ittiachen, chief architect, Freight Tiger, said, “We were looking for a data platform that could support our scale in business whilst maintaining our current team strength. We have decided to partner with Snowflake as it allows us to do just that, and more. With Snowflake onboard, we are now able to run ad hoc queries and retrieve up-to-date data from a combination of various sources, with the assurance that the data is always available for the team.”
