From the pages of Cargotalk: Aggregation models should be strengthened to bring efficiency: Aditya Shah

Commenting on the aggregation model where truck owners are connected by the goods supplier, Aditya Shah, Executive Director, V-Trans India emphasised, “A lot of attempts have been made whether through private players or associations. To bring in efficiency, aggregation models should be strengthened, and they must be accessible to everyone, be it a truck aggregator or direct consumer. However, since the volume is so huge, probably one aggregating platform may not be able to sustain. It is only possible if three to four players merge, whether it is private or government, in order to make the truck seamlessly available to everyone. So, the data would be available but it is more about how easily we are able to access it with the use of technology and get the vehicle wherever you required it.”
