Says Jain, "Making a decent profit is becoming very challenging in trucks logistics due to increasing competition and rising fuel costs, which has made our operation cost dearer by 10-15%. So, there is a lot of pressure on loan repayments, and to hedge our repayment liabilities, we are going for longer loan periods, and using the cash flow for operations. This year, business saw a drop of almost 10-15% due to floods in Kerala and certain other factors. Despite all this, we have to keep our fleet well serviced and replace old vehicles with new ones, and ensure operator comport and fuel efficiency. We replaced 100-150 of our single, multi-axle and flat-bed trailer trucks last year."

He adds, "For timely movement of consignments and to prevent damage in case of an accident, our container trucks are covered with high tensile steel. The operators are also trained by us, the manufacturers and the shippers in handling the trucks, which are fitted with GPS for monitoring their movement and ensuring faster turnaround, and we are also upgrading our operational systems."
We believe in using latest updated Technologies, and equipped with highly accurate GPS systems for real time tracking of our vehicles

However, Jain contends that timely evacuation of the cargo remains a major issue because customers prefer to keep the vehicles as long as possible, with the stored cargo. To curtail this, they are training operators to handle and unload the cargo quickly and efficiently.
