The Critical Role of Transportation in Business and the Economy

Transportation is among the more vital economic activities for a business. By moving goods from locations where they are sourced to locations where they are demanded, transportation provides the essential service of linking a company to its suppliers and customers. It is an essential activity in the logistics function, supporting the economic utilities of place and time. Place utility infers that customers have product available where they demand it. Time utility suggests that customers have access to product when they demand it. By working in close collaboration with inventory planners, transportation professionals seek to ensure that the business has product available where and when customers seek it.

Transportation is sometimes to blame for a company’s inability to properly serve customers. Late deliveries can be the source of service problems and complaints. Products might also incur damage while in transit, or warehouse workers might load the wrong items at a shipping location. Such over, short, or damaged shipments can frustrate customers, too, leading to dissatisfaction and the decision to buy from a competitor for future purchases.

However, when a company performs on time with complete and undamaged deliveries consistently, this can instill customer confidence and gain business for the company. When a company instills confidence in service performance, it can make customers more reluctant to succumb to competitors’ bids to steal business away through clever promotions and reduced prices.

Bridging the gap between Shippers & Transporters

Transportation and truck drivers, the vital units which support business, are the proverbial backbone, muscle and sinews of the logistics industry. The Indian logistics industry has in the the past had an abundance of truck driver. But the situation is set to change dramatically as industry is facing an unprecedented shortage of drivers. This is likely to cascade into an endemic problem that will chip away at the growth of this sector. For every 100 vehicles, there are at least ten which have no drivers. According to survey there are 72 lakh commercial vehicles(both large and small) in the country, while the number of drivers has correspondingly reduced by 5-10 percent.

The transport sector has always been vibrant, but an unorganized sector. It is due to the unorganized nature of the sector, coupled with callous indifference and a reprehensible lack of foresight, that the problem is set to assume serious proportions. Why, in a country with high unemployment and a  bountiful supply of labour, should it be difficult  to recruit drivers ? Because of the plenty of  reasons few of them are written below:

  1. Despite of their  rigorous work life, they are getting meagre money.
  2. Absence of good medical facilities on our highways.
  3. Never get good and hygienic places to eat or rest on the  highway.
  4. Even not getting social respect in the society.
  5. Last but not the least, the mediators, the brokers and the booking agents will not allow truck drivers to connect  directly with the shippers, and exploits them financially.

The logistics industry’s growth and in a sense, even its future, rests on the humble truck driver. With most goods being transported by road, a shortage of truckers could curdle the hopes and dreams of the industry.

There is a need of wise way to tackle these problems. Truckr do not promise to solve all the problems of truck drivers. TRUCKR provides an online platform for Transporters (truck drivers) and Shippers, where shippers post their shipments and the transporters quote for the Shipment which will definitely skip the mediators or the broker’s aspects between the truck drivers and shippers. It is a mobile based easy to use application. In short it is a transportation exchange to bring convenience and efficiency to entire transportation industry.
