Life at Truck Terminals in India

A topmost worry that is disturbing truck drivers across the business is parking issues which they face in all parts of the country. Whether it’s loading & unloading at particular centers or rest breaks along the road, parking issues top the list of all fears.


Truck Terminals provide truck drivers with such parking facilities. Truck Terminals consist of small transport offices, and various other facilities which aid loading & unloading of cargo. But along with the change in functioning of the logistics industry, it is necessary that truck terminals also change progressively.


Certain facilities such as First aid, dormitory and restrooms should be provided for betterment of truck drivers along with necessary services such as garage, service stations & fuel pumps. Moreover, truck terminals are the ideal place for creating awareness among the truck drivers on HIV/AIDS & other important information such as Government road policies, and rules & regulations. 

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. 

We share along a video – ‘Life at Truck Terminals’ - which is a collaborative effort of Mahindra Navistar and Zee news to recognize and appreciate the efforts taken by truck drivers to keep the economy stable.

This video brings more such interesting insights into the ‘Life at Truck Terminals’:
The Government is taking necessary actions to solve all parking related issues. The administration plans to appoint a team of traffic experts to analyze the issues & provide with effective solutions for improvement of the industry.

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
