TruckSuvidha: Transportation On Online Wheels
It is the story of two, Mr. Ishu Bansal (A Former Infosys Employee)And Mr. Amit Punaini(A Well Settled Businessman) founders of TruckSuvidha, who are trying to bring Transportation, the unorganized sector to the organized one.
When Ishu Bansal observes that his family business facing problems in transporting manufactured goods from their plywood manufacturing unit, they have established in Mundia in Badaun District in 2003. He was then convinced there are others also in the same boat and facing the same problems. Despite of all efforts they are unable to get consistent and appropriate transportation facilities and hence went as far as buying a truck of their own in 2007. But the problem didn't get solved as it increases the investment cost and ROI decreases.
In 2011, Ishu Bansal brought up this transportation related affliction with Mr. Amit Punaini, who was in Business relation with him. The idea was thus conceived and together they make their mind to use technology to relieve this highly unorganized sector to the extent possible. It was in 2011, that they duo start working on the project, started concentrating the database and do research. This research starts with infinite visits to Azadpur Mandi(Delhi), transport houses, truck drivers, dhabas , unions and other people who are directly or indirectly related with the industry.
Ishu was 21 at that time and was working with Infosys. The self motivated entrepreneur invested all his savings with Amit. The project took almost three years to develop to the stage of launching and in September 2014 , they are able to come in market with their concept.
