Life on Wheels - Life of an Indian Truck Driver

Posted on Friday, September 23, 2011

Truck drivers are often looked down upon, with little understanding of their lives & their job. Driving trucks can be quite dangerous & risky but these truck drivers take it up as a daily activity. They spend a major portion of their lives on the roads with these trucks. They are never treated with the respect they deserve. Compared to other developed countries, truckers in India are poorly paid and often criticized for rash driving & breaking of rules.

Truck Drivers are the most substantial part of the transport industry. Not only do they help the logistics industry but are certainly a back bone for the country’s economy. There are about 5 million truck drivers in the country who keep the business moving. But no -one ever notices their difficulties & struggles which they face during their life on wheels.

We share along a video – ‘Life of an Indian Truck Driver’ - which is a collaborative effort of Mahindra Navistar and Zee Business to recognize and appreciate the struggles taken by a truck driver to keep the economy steady.

However, in recent times, the demands for truck terminals are increasing. The current truck terminals are inefficient to provide truck drivers with adequate facilities & are poor in maintenance.

This video brings to more such interesting insights into the life of an Indian truck driver:

Truck drivers are undoubtedly the solid pillars of the trucking industry who work 365 Days to keep the Indian commerce running. They keep pace with time to deliver merchandises on time with just a simple faith in their mind – An optimism to create a better future for the country.

This initiative is taken by Mahindra Navistar under Mahindra Navistar Excellence Awards to recognize and reward Outperformance, Excellence, Innovation and Change Leadership in the Indian Trucking Industry.
