This objective of study is intended to find the changing perception of general public on heavy containerized type of trucks specially used for transport of passenger cars in polluting the environment. This study will help logistics companies involved in shipment of goods through heavy containerized trucks to decide upon steps to be taken care for fast, safe and secure movement of goods alongside adhering to the pollution norms, so that the growth of these companies keeps on improving. Research conducted by me is descriptive in nature. Descriptive research has helped in developing the concept of established priorities, to divulge adequate information which helps in decision making and thus essential for making the study a success.
The operations of many transport companies like Maersk, TRP Logistics Pvt. Ltd., BLR Logistics (I) Ltd., Reliable Cargo Movers & Packers and Rio Logistics Pvt. Ltd. etc. should adopt a better strategy for faster movement of cargo, reducing turnaround time and simultaneously satisfying the public and the government on environmental degradation issues. Best strategy will be to cover all areas like reducing idling time, better truck driving, faster product movement, quality deliveries in terms of reliability and of course reduction in exhaust gases harmful for environment. Once the conservative thought would diminish, definitely the transport sector will grow with leaps and bounds to ultimately benefit all stakeholders.
