Today, the whole world is facing a war against one of the deadliest diseases in the history of mankind – COVID-19. With WHO announcing the crisis to be a pandemic, many industries and the global economy have hit an all-time low.
As a result of the lockdown and social distancing, the transport industry has almost come to a standstill. During such tough times, keeping your business afloat and providing revenue opportunities for your drivers becomes a priority. Here are a few areas your taxi business can explore.
Many healthcare professionals have been involved in the care of protecting people day and night. Helping these healthcare workers during such difficult times can be a way of contributing to society. You can offer discounted rides to these workers or team up with healthcare institutes to meet their transportation needs.
Since the larger part of the society is under lockdown, delivering essentials has been a priority for the governments across the world. Your taxi business can make a strategic partnership with grocery wholesalers to provide essentials to people who aren’t able to come out of their homes. This way, you can earn more revenue opportunities for your drivers.
Another sector that’s shown a great deal of growth during this lockdown is the pharmaceutical sector. These are also products that have been an essential part of everyday life. So, taxi companies can deliver medicines, earn a great reputation among their customers and provide salaries for their drivers.
By adopting all these strategies, your taxi business can generate revenue, garner good reputation and engage your drivers during this global crisis.
