They well recognize the fact that the logistics industry is heavily fragmented, unorganized and complicated. It took them an in-depth research and industry understanding to identify and address the pain points in this industry. The teams were extensively sensitive to not over complicate the processes while digitizing them.
“We have focussed on the actual end-users who only work with a platform if it is seamless, hassle-free and easy to use.

DEALING WITH THE PANDEMIC
The covid-19 scenario showed us that logistics is the lifeline of any country as the transportation of essentials and medical supplies was the need of the hour amid the reigning chaos. Across all the industries, the logistics services were in heavy demand— be it pharma, FMCG, agriculture and e-commerce. But, there were several impediments to the process for which several service providers understood the need to transform their operations to bridge the gap between high demand and customer expectations.
This is where, Bigtruck technology and solutions pitched in to meet the imperative need of in-transit visibility. “We didn’t only bring in a platform that talked about usage of Digital technologies but we also built a platform which was like a all- inclusive eco system that connected all stakeholders through cloud,” revealed the tycoon.
All of their tech-solution eradicated unwanted delays, keeping up with the rising demand of their on-time deliveries. Optimizing delivery management, taking into consideration factors like distance between delivery points, vehicle capacity, load placement, customer preferences, etc, have been the salient features of Bigtuck’s technology product.
“At a time where over a million citizens of our country were losing their jobs to the COVID-19 crisis, it was becoming imperative that we gathered our collective strength to mitigate the impact it has on their sustenance. Bigtruck, in a small way, has been able to improve the livelihood of our underprivileged brothers & sisters, who bear the brunt of the crisis. We kept on supporting our employees and their family to reinforce the fact that, We Are In This Together,”
claims Khurshid Alam, acknowledging the unfortunate scenario induced by the unprecedented pandemic.
