Evolving Mass Transportation Scenario In India

<ol><li>Employee transport is one such system in India</li></ol><p>India has begun the economy recovery post COVID-19.&nbsp; The year 2021 looks hopeful while the Government of India is adopting the &ldquo;Make In India&rdquo; approach to help local businesses grow.</p><p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;New companies are moving out from the traditional&nbsp;transportation scenario and are here to change the face of the employee transport system thus helping the recovery faster as corporates plunge to get the employees back to their office.&nbsp;</p><p style="text-align: justify;">Armed with new edge technology the start-up is set to transform the shared mobility and ETS domain.&nbsp;</p><p style="text-align: justify;">Automated rostering scheduling dispatches and billing, total digitisation of transport is a big step ahead in maintaining&nbsp;transparency and control over compliance in today's fast-moving&nbsp;world.</p><p style="text-align: justify;">Data available&nbsp;at the fingertips and open for audit all the time, conventional transportation has moved a long way towards automation and digitisation.</p><p style="text-align: justify;">The advent of high-speed internet and 4G and now 5G coming into the picture has transformed the scenario and the tracking mechanisms.</p><p style="text-align: justify;">App based tracking and rostering has made communication easy and many manual processes and systems redundant.&nbsp;</p><p style="text-align: justify;">Main key is the Operations and technology handshake is a key element in successful implementation proper incentivisation and rationalisation of the rates will help this make happen. As ambiguity moves out of the minds of the drivers who are key to ensuring 100 percent implementation and they realise they get their full potential and realisation of costs the total automation will be very helpful.</p><p style="text-align: justify;">Technology &amp;&nbsp;interconnected systems and applications helps optimise every km run by one driver.&nbsp;</p><p style="text-align: justify;">In future with AI the inventory of transport should be visible and usable to any user from any domain resulting in higher utilization of the inventory and ultimately yielding profit to the driver. The On-demand transportation will truly take shape.</p><p style="text-align: justify;">The fixed costs get divided over multiple users ultimately making the transportation costs rational and manageable for one and all.</p><p style="text-align: justify;">Distributed ownerships models and splitting of the fixed overheads will lessen the per km travel transportation costs.</p><p style="text-align: justify;">Few players are thinking out of the box to ring in new business pricing models and looking over the horizon with the EV entry into this space.</p><p style="text-align: justify;">The help from the government in proper infrastructure for charging and EV mobility will bring in a sea change in ensuring cheaper travel for all.</p><p style="text-align: justify;">The government-run units mostly run into losses due to subsidy and taking ownership of the costs.</p><p style="text-align: justify;">A little bit of tweaking in government policies will help in reducing the losses and pushing the private enterprises into building profitable enterprises also promoting entrepreneurship within the masses and making citizens more self-reliant.</p><p style="text-align: justify;">The demand in India for intelligent safe and sustainable transport solutions is tremendous and will continue to grow till the end of mankind.</p><p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p><p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p><p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p>
