KSRTC to induct 20 cargo trucks to enhance freight business

The Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) is planning to induct 20 cargo trucks in a determined foray into organised freight business. Transport Minister Ramalinga Reddy inspected one of these trucks at the KSRTC central office and will flag off 20 on December 23, said reports. The government-owned bus operator has launched its freight business called ‘Namma Cargo’ to increase its its non-fare revenue. While the KSRTC has increased its freight traffic revenue from Rs 1 crore to Rs 2.5 crore a month, it’s planning to scale up operations. The induction of 20 ‘Namma Cargo’ trucks is a step in that direction,” added reports.
