This will be done to charge toll in proportion to the road used by that vehicle. A pilot run for such ‘geo-fencing’ on the Delhi-Mumbai highway is expected to begin in the next couple of weeks after the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways and the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) finalise theproposal of charging toll based on the distance travelled.

IoT: the smart way to reduce transport risk and operational costs

It’s a well-known fact that the logistics industry impacts a very large segment of business worldwide with an estimated market size of more than four trillion. Logistics is a key growth parameter for most industries and sectors including e-commerce and manufacturing. Due to poor road conditions and long waits on tolls, Indian trucks travel only 20 days a month as compared to 25 days in developing countries. According to a survey, the average speed of trucks is 20kph. So, a truck in India can cover only 250-300km a day compared to 700-800km in developed countries such as the US and Europe.
