National Logistic Cell (NLC) has launched vehicle recovery service namely NLC Dost Recovery for light and heavy vehicles along the entire GT Road to help commuter and to provide facilitation to the logistics industry of Pakistan.
This is first of its kind facility along the GT road, which will help transporters and general commuters in case of mishaps and breakdowns. It would be worth mentioning here that the service will be available for 24/7 and latest machinery has been placed along GT road in this regard. Moreover, one can also call the helpline number, which the authority has made to get help if their vehicle has been damaged while travelling.
Heavy vehicles breaking down on GT road is common and this not only hinders the traffic flow but also cause financial loss to transporters, as after the breakdown they get stuck on the road, unable to deliver the shipment on time. This new service will be very viable for the transporters as they will get help in no time which would result in a less financial loss for them.
This service is a part of Drivers Emergency & Rest Areas (DERA), which will be launched soon. The DERA service will provide all kinds of international facilities for people driving through GT road such as parking areas, medical assistance, eateries etc.
The whole service is being introduced keeping in view the probable surge of heavy vehicles due to China Pakistan Economic Corridor.
General masses and transporters have lauded the efforts of all the stakeholders who are making this service a reality. Before this service, there was no organized recovery facility along the GT road.
Stay tuned for the latest updates.
