A break-through tech-based app, Fleeca has extended quick support to about 3000 truck drivers in critical times of breakdown during lockdown 2.0. A tyre management startup, it resumed its Tyre Health and Tyre Care services with its 250+ Fleeca Centers located on highways in the ‘modified lockdown’. Within just one week after the first lockdown period, the Centers operated 24X7 and supported for uninterrupted movement of trucks on highways so as to ensure the timely inter-state supply of Pharma, FMCG and other essential goods.
Expressing Fleeca’s readiness against COVID-19, Tikam Jain, Founder and CEO, Fleeca, says, “From 22nd April we started operating our Centers all over highways. The decision came after the Ministry of Home Affairs generated guidelines on the transportation sector and other similar sectors. The circular permits workshops/shops for repairing truck and fleets especially on highways, to remain open during the lockdown. Tyre maintenance is one of the most common issues on the road which causes fleet owners to lag behind in on-time deliveries. We wanted to take this up as the best opportunity to use the technology and network we developed to serve the nation.”
In this lockdown period, numerous truck drivers/fleets have been stuck on highways due to maintenance related issues. Most highway repair shops were still not opened and in the time of this emergency, there is still no limit to the prices which are being charged by service providers. The company offers fixed and transparent pricing, quality service and reduces almost all hassles faced by drivers or fleet operators during this period.
On highways, it becomes very critical for drivers to find help. By using App, the fleet owner or driver can locate the nearby Fleeca Center or call on IVR number (+91 7733999944) and they will find a team coming for their help within one hour. Various services offered by these trained maintenance support teams include tyre fitment, tyre removal, puncture repair, rotation, wheel alignment, fresh and retreaded tyre sale etc.
Currently operating in 9 states, Fleeca Centers are actively available on 13 National and State highways. Some of the major highways covered are Delhi–Ahmedabad–Mumbai, Delhi–Nasik– Mumbai, Mumbai–Bangalore–Chennai, Delhi–Kolkata, Jaipur–Gandhidham, Chittor– Nimuch–Dahod, Pune–Solapur–Hyderabad.
