Transport is an important part of India's economy but it is poor in comparison with international standards. Since the economic liberalisation of the 1990s, infrastructure development has progressed rapidly; today there is a variety of modes of transport by land, water and air. However, India's relatively low GDP per capita has meant that access to transport has not been uniform.The biggest challenge faced by the transporters is that young generation of existing transport employees and owners does not want to join their parent’s industry. The young generation wants to do something different rather than following their parent’s business. Even existing truck drivers are also leaving this industry and slowly moving to bus driving or local driving because of stable income, safety & comfort.
Major challenge for any transport organization is infrastructure. Roads are not in good condition due to which it creates hindrance in transportation of goods. Lack of service providing shops along side roads like repairing shop, dhabas, rest places etc due to which truck drivers has to face lots of problems. Even at least one big godown is required at all major cities for centralized delivery & pick-up of material and one small outlet (own or franchisee) at each business potential area of that city for better administrative control & customer relations. But it is not easy to buy a land when the price and rent of land is sky touching.
Today, from all these above reason, transport business becomes the biggest challenge in India. Government must take proper steps to create awareness and to educate transporters and truckers. Infrastructure should be developed so that transportation of goods becomes easy. Growth opportunities in transport business must be increased so that young generation also wants to join this industry.
