Tractor trailers can be hired by a click of a button; Cochin port paves the way

Freight forwarders and shippers operating from Cochin port can hire a tractor trailer to evacuate or load a container by a click of a button with a start up Tranzhub all set to implement the hiring system like Olah uber taxi hailer service.

The company has come up with an online booking platform linking trailer operators, freight forwarders and customs brokers, enabling them to fix trailer hire charges and terms directly.

The new initiative, scheduled to be launched by the end of this month at the Kochi Port, assumes significance at a time when the government is reportedly considering online booking options for trucks to speed up cargo movement in major ports.

This is for the first time in the Indian logistics sector that such an online trailer booking facility is being launched. The container transportation is largely unorganised and the company intends to organise it through technological intervention.

Transzhub has developed an online booking platform Trailerji.com- where users can register, post and fulfill their requirements using the company's website or the mobile app.

Initially, the online booking facility will be introduced at the Kochi Port, and soon be extended to other major ports, said a spokesman of the company There will be a one-time service charge and user-fee for each booking to fund the program.
