The To-Fro Model

Current scenario of drivers in our country

This section of our society has not been accorded with any position of dignity, largely owing to their absence in the routine social life of their families and communities. In addition, the lifestyle practice/habits of the truck driver community are perceived negatively by the general public. And the remuneration for truck drivers is one of the most neglected areas of logistics operations, generally across the globe, but more specifically in India.

A truck driver in India earns somewhere between INR 20,000 to 25,000 a month, which is very less compared to the kind of efforts required to do the job. Truck driving is a very hectic job and in addition to physical stress it involves a lot of mental stress also. This is one of the main reasons for the general shortage of truck drivers in most urban and semi-urban markets.

Why To-Fro, & what it does

To-Fro is a method devised by TRAILS where the drivers will reach home the same day or within 24 hours. This will ensure the drivers a better work-life balance. Our main aim is to make drivers life easy and at the same time increase the efficiency of truck movement. The model that looks perfectly simple when discussed is actually a complex logistical exercise. This exercise will be backed by sophisticated algorithms, data science, automation process and analytics.

The implementation of To-Fro will reduce the overall logistics cost and also the transportation time. Through this model reduce the time by almost 60% to 70% and the logistics cost by almost 2.5% to 3%.

Here we call our drivers as “Commanders”.

This model will ensure that the truck driver reaches home at the end of the day and if this happens it will solve many of the driver related issues.
