Transportation and Logistics contributes to a huge part to the Indian economy and plays a crucial role in sustaining the economy of India. Recently, with the rise of eCommerce platforms in a developing country like ours’, logistics has come across as one of the fastest-growing sectors. The Transportation and Logistics sector has a whopping 4.7% contribution to our GDP.
To overcome the drawbacks of the transportation and logistics sector, we are inspired to build the TRUST and TRANSPARENCY factor between the stakeholders, enhance technological infrastructure, cut off middlemen meddling with the operations, complete access over drivers and their HOS (hours of service), on-time delivery, and availability of the transporters.
The problem is not in the truck driver’s income or skill gaps but is deep-rooted in his hectic workload. Staying away from his family for a long time and indulging in stressful work leads to social disrespect, stigma, and risk perception of the job which makes their families push them to quit their job.
Truck drivers play a vital role in the freight transportation industry but unfortunately, drivers don’t get better pay for their hard work. We at Bigtruck are working relentlessly to build a system which strives to consistently improve their socio-economic conditions through the following measures to scatter light into their life.
- Safety Peril
- Poor health condition and inclined to maladies
- Irregular meals and insufficient rest to relax
- Lack of social respect for the profession
- Imbalanced family life
