Or­gan­ised and pro­fes­sional

Commercial Vehicle - - LET­TERS -

The launch of trucks by Eicher for the e-com­merce seg­ment is an in­ter­est­ing de­vel­op­ment. It re­flects on a post GST sce­nario where the ef­fi­ciency of trans­port op­er­a­tions is fast ris­ing, and the pref­er­ence for mod­ern, safe, ef­fi­cient and clean-burn­ing trucks is grow­ing. The shift to higher ton­nage trucks is also ris­ing. If it will help the con­sign­ment of medicines, food or fruits to reach from one des­ti­na­tion to an­other quickly enough, it may be safe to as­sume that the trans­porta­tion sec­tor has truly ma­tured. To en­sure re­spect for truck driv­ers it is nec­es­sary for the owner-op­er­a­tor model to grow man­i­fold. Not only will it boost the CV in­dus­try, it will also im­prove safety as ed­u­cated and skilled youths turn to the pro­fes­sion. Such a driver fra­ter­nity will de­mand bet­ter trucks and be pro­fes­sional in their con­duct. Not only will many ill prac­tices be curbed, the com­plete trans­port in­dus­try will trans­form.
