Truck Drivers, Indian economy’s front-line warriors in COVID19 times


COVID19 has brought in unusual times. They are not easy to glide through for the trucking industry as well.

The trucking industry, the nervous system of an economy, keeps things rolling, taking them to places where they are required and hence fueling the system. Hence, in the times of the global pandemic, it became more than just the duty of the trucking industry to keep the nation up and running.

But as they say that the tough get going in the tougher situations, the trucking industry has been busy carrying out its duties with even more diligence and hence setting examples.

Hard Times

With the country being in lockdown for about 90 days, the transport system delivering the essentials did not stop. We cannot be thankful enough to the truck drivers who became our front-line warriors carrying the essentials from one destination to another, fulfilling the demands of the millions.

As critical workers carrying out their duties, the drivers had to bring themselves in harm’s way to ensure that essential medicines, supplies, and food items are readily available to our communities in this time of need.

The truck drivers did not worry about getting exposed to infection and kept bringing to us our milk, groceries, and other crucial goods that helped us continue our daily chores while being in the safety of our homes in the lockdown.

During these unprecedented times, truckers need more support from us and a process of following preventive measures to help ensure that they are safe. In this case, the digital world embracing new technologies can be beneficial for them.

And now, when the nation has entered into the stages of Unlock, gradually opening itself, the continuing spread of COVID-19 has pushed forth the demand for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) kits and medical supplies. There is constant pressure on the supply chain that is already managing the delivery of essential goods throughout the country.
