Liabilities of Trucking Company
The company should be a duly licensed/registered one with the registration bureau. A true copy of this registration should be affixed every time in the office of every branch of the company for the perusal and satisfaction of the customers. It should not be an expired one.
The expiry date should be easily visible and legible to the customers/visitors for the purpose of booking of a truck. Despite of this if a customer wants to see an original license of the company for any reason, the management of the company should arrange for that by connecting the relevant bureau through internet as the facility is available now a days.
All the trucks of the company should be registered with any registration branch of the country according to the rules. Every time original registration of the truck should be with the driver of the truck. Registration should be fresh and renewed if required. The expiry date if there is as per rules should be prominent. Engine and chassis Nos. of every truck should be tallied with the Nos. noted on the registration book. On demand of the customer the company or driver should show the registration book.
All the due taxes should be paid in time by the owner of the truck/company. The registration book should bear the due taxes paid stamp or writing otherwise. Expiry date if (there is as per rules) should be visible and legible. Route permit duly issued by the relevant office should be with the company or truck driver and during the journey it should be with the driver. The route permit should be renewed if so required by the rules. Every truck of the company should have the fresh fitness certificate issued by the motor vehicle examiner. The renewing and expiry date should be clear for the satisfaction of the customer.
All the drivers of the company should be licensed and during the journey the license should be with the driver. License should not be an expired one if the rules demand renewal etc. The validity and expiry time should be clearly shown on the driving license. Through this article we would like to advise/suggest a trucking company to maintain a list bearing the registration and route permits Nos. names of the drivers, expiry dates of registrations, route permits, driving licenses and fitness certificates of the trucks. This list should be remained before the relevant employee of the company. It would be very professional if this list is made exposure to the public.
In addition to above noted liabilities the trucking company should have its website on the internet as per the demand of recent time. It is very awkward if in the present time of advancement a trucking company has not website. Anyhow the company should have prominent place on the net. Other sources of advertisement should also be used by the company to grow up the business and facilitate the public. It is very immediate liability of a trucking company, driver or representative to issue a receipt of the articles to the customer and get a certificate from the customer after transportation of the same.
