“Our alliance with Okara Group is mainly to provide doorstep diesel delivery services in Maharashtra and to help entities like housing societies, industries as well as malls, with a regular supply of diesel. It saves customers the hassle of transporting large amounts of diesel from the petrol stations to their desired location.

Humsafar’s solution allows users to place orders on the ‘Fuel Humsafar’ app and choose the desired quantity and delivery location.

The 4000-liter as well as 6000-liter capacity delivery trucks come with a mobile fuel dispenser for easy transfer of diesel. Also, the truck is enabled with geofencing technology to keep it locked till it reaches the set location, is equipped with fire extinguishers and safety cones among others for demarcation of the delivery area. Diesel is delivered at the day’s running price including taxes applicable in the state,” said Sanya Goel, Director, and Co-founder of Humsafar.
