Transportation industry is highly unorganised in India. Many middle men exist who help the whole system to run smoothly. Transport Agent and brokers are major middle men which help in matching the supply and demand of transport vehicles. Any cosigner or organisation who needs vehicle for transportation of goods, material or products usually contacts transport agents who he knows and places his requirements.
The agent then tried to find appropriate match for the given requirements and fulfils the demand. Traditionally this process has been taking many days in which the actual vehicle reaches the destination after many days. With the advancements in new online startups and aggregate companies, most of these problems have been solved not only for the cosigner and consignee, but also the transport agents.
