Retailers work out options to cope with truckers strike
Posted On: 10-01-2009 08:10:00 AM

While some retailers such as Reliance Retail which manages its own fleet are unaffected by the truckers strike, other retailers are having to resort to covert methods such as mid-night deliveries and using smaller vehicles to get supplies of perishable products as the truckersí strike continues, disrupting the movement of supplies across the country. Some NCR retailers have tied up with truck owners who take some extra money to supply at night while others are arranging to get supplies through tempos and three-wheelers. Spencers, which has 17-18 warehouses currently and stores perishable goods, like fruits and vegetables for a week is unaffected for the moment, but is looking at alternate sourcing options.However there are others who are likely to be affected if the strike continues. Future Group has two Big Bazaar stores scheduled to open in Surat in Gujarat and Thinsukhiya in Assam in January. If the truckers strike is not called off soon the retailer will not be able to send product to fill the stores.
