Background

As a majority of the truck drivers in India don't use smartphones during their trips due to safety and security concerns, it's being harder for the truck owner to promise delivery timing in new locations. Especially in long-haul trucks, this is a major issue as the truck drivers will be stopping and asking for routes frequently which will increase the delivery time.


Vision

Make navigation more accessible to the truck drivers in their feature phone itself and ease the process of communication between truck drivers/owners, field staff, and the industry managers


Scenario

Mr. Arjun is a truck driver and Mr. Aarav is the owner of the truck & owns 6 more trucks. Mr. Aarav has attached a GPS device with all his trucks so that he can track in anytime. When the transport contractor wants to know the truck location, the Transport Contractor => Calls Mr. Aarav to know where the truck is and Mr. Aarav has to check the tracking software and inform the transport contractor (or) transporter call Mr. Arjun and asks the location. This reduces the productivity of every stakeholder.


Problem Statement

  1. Owners / Industries facing difficulty in getting updates from field workers (Drivers or Transport Contractors)

  2. Drivers facing difficulty in tier-2 & tier-3 city navigation without smartphone
