6 benefits of booking trucks online on Trukor
Every truck owner or fleet owner’s objective is to get more truck bookings to avoid idling and make profit. While most truckers rely on their regular customers and a few are contracted with large companies, the spare capacity trucks that amount to around 70% in India rely on references, phone calls or business by chance. They however remain without revenue for most of the days.
This situation calls for an online truck booking platform that can offer many advantages to the truckers, the reason it is slowly getting popular among the transporters in India. These are typically the pain points to consider for goods transportation that the consignors currently face:
- Unavailability of trucks on demand
