Rains in India Warrant Special Cargo Precautions


All of us would agree that the recent rains have brought a much needed relief from the scorching and everlasting summers and fears of draught in India. Many of us are looking forward to have unplanned leaves / vacations in these heavy rains, not to mention the cravings for hot tea and pakodas. With the onset of rains throughout the country, it becomes imperative that necessary precautions are taken while transporting goods, so that it does not get wet and in-turn does not get damaged.

Moreover, to protect the existing cargo, wet or damaged goods may not be permitted into the warehouse. Also, while the packaging of wet or damaged goods is being refurbished or, in some cases, entirely replaced, deliveries may be delayed several days causing unwanted complexities in many city like Mumbai.

Usually, the cargo is packed/boxed and wrapped individually, but mostly the precautionary measures depend on the nature of the cargo. For example:

  • Heavy machines are wrapped in plastic before packing them in wooden cascades.
  • Household articles are bubble wrapped and packed in cardboard boxes and then covered in plastic sheets.

Additionally, as an extra precaution, these are then transported in a fully covered truck.

The transport service providers also take measures that the cargo of their customers’ does not get wet and for that they cover the truck with layers of tarpaulin and plastic sheets.

Trukky believes the heavy monsoon rains also warrant special precautions to protect your cargo. They suggest that closed body trucks should be used for your full load truck requirements as well as the valuable part load cargo should be wrapped in plastic from inside before being boxed. The transport services provider would not want to have a cargo wrapped with plastic from outside, as it would mean they will have to spend on additional handling costs.

With a large number of vendors with container body trucks, Trukky offers a very simple yet robust solution for your transport requirements this monsoon ensuring safety of your goods.

The monsoon season lasts for four months from June through September in India. For more information call trukky.com on 72278 72278 or visit trukky.com
