Gurugram-based fleet management platform Fleetx.io (aka Fleetx) has raised $2.8 million in a Series A round of funding led by Singapore-based Beenext alongside existing investor India Quotient.

The two-and-half-year-old start-up also raised funding from individual investors including Snapdeal founders Kunal Bahl and Rohit Bansal, Rajesh Ranavat (MD, LiFung Capital) and Rohan Ranavat (Investor, Temasek Holdings).

This is the third external round of funding for the company. Earlier, it had raised an angel round in 2018 and a pre-series A round February last year from IndiaQuotient and LetsVenture.

Fleetx with its new round of funding is likely to invest in scaling in India and other markets, strengthening product and technology and hiring talent.
