Shift Home Without Hassle Interm Packers

Whenever someone thinks about changing their house, the first thing that comes to their mind is that where will they find the trucker to carry the same, how much money will he take, if anyone finds the truck. If the same is to be moved from one state to another, will the trucker also be able to deliver his goods safely? Many such questions start wandering in the mind. Interm Packers from Pune is working to address these concerns. With full transparency, it not only removes the customers' worries but is also working to address the problems of the truck owners.

Interm Packers co-founder Senthil Kumar has faced a similar problem once when he had to send his old refrigerator to another city. When they looked for truckers for this work, it took them two hours. The surprising thing was that all the truckers they met told different prices to send the fridge at the same distance. Then it came to his mind that this business of sending goods is in the hands of the drivers, due to this, the real price is not available to the customers. On the other hand, drivers have to spend 50 to 60 percent of their time at work. Senthil Kumar and Wassister immediately accepted the challenge and began to find a solution to the problem that would be beneficial for both the customer and the truck owners. In this way Interm Packers knocked over the market. This team of Interm Packers consists of 7 people. Who handle different types of work and responsibilities. Senthil's background is related to IT and he leads the team, while Vassister is a business graduate and has experience in supply chain management and IT.

While other members of the team look at the Ramamurthi web application team. Interm Packers formally launched in February 2015 but officially launched in March 2015. Initially, they had 20 Tata Ace Mini trucks whose number has now increased to 75. These are all truck owners. Now they have Tata Ace Mini trucks in their fleet, in addition to Ashok Leyland Dost and Tata 407 in the entire city of Chennai. Their business is growing at a rate of 100 percent every month. According to these people, initially, it was not a difficult task to connect the truck drivers with them, but meeting them on time and bargaining over the price was a big problem. Police verification of all drivers is done for safety.

To avail services of Interm Packers, any customer has to provide their information in their designed web application after which the truck driver is sent the details of the journey via SMS. After this, the driver contacts the customer and takes the goods to the right place. Interm Packers does not currently have a mobile app, but work is on and will be released soon. Interm Packers shares each transaction with truck drivers. Till now any customer makes a cash payment to the truck driver after reaching the same but these people are working on introducing an online payment facility.
