LOAD CARRIER’S RETURN LOAD COME TO THE POCKET WITH THE TIRPORT
The ordeal of our truck and truck drivers to find the return load ends with the TIRPORT mobile application. TIRPORT solves the endless return load of our drivers before they even set off!
Approximately 1.5 million people in Turkey earn their living directly from truck driving. Out of every 10 trucks on the market, 9 are the personal property of the drivers, and 1 belong to the transport companies. Considering that 92% of the transportation in Turkey is done by road and 900 thousand trucks are loaded every day, a picture of the heavy load on the shoulders of our drivers in the logistics sector, both materially and morally, will emerge.
The financial and moral burden of our drivers is not limited to this 92% heavy road logistics traffic. In Turkey, where fuel is very expensive compared to other countries in the world, a truck waits an average of 2.5 days in a city to find a return load. It takes 7 days for international flights. Both the financial burden of expensive fuel and the expenses of these waiting are on the shoulders of our drivers. In order to find a return load as soon as possible, to prevent financial damage and to reunite with the families they left behind as soon as possible, the drivers sometimes pass in front of the load boards for days in the truck and TIR parks and wait for a suitable load for their own truck/TIR. In the hope of finding a return load, aside from the increase in the fatigue and suffering of the drivers as the days go by, this unfavorable situation also damages both the drivers and the logistics sector as a great time cost, loss of workforce and accommodation costs.
Seeing that the solution to all the negativities and damages caused by the search for return load with these traditional methods is through the flow of information, TIRPORT brings a solution to this blood loss of the sector with its digital information platform!
