How the year 2020 looked for Humsafar
Beginning of 2020
The year 2020 was an unpredictable and challenging year with the global pandemic bringing everything to a standstill. During this crucial and testing period, we commenced our doorstep diesel delivery services to extend our support to those offering their undying efforts to the nation - farmers, hospitals, housing societies and hotels.
With essential workers everywhere heroically stepping up, working against all odds to keep the rest of us safe, we ensured there was no stopping them with fuel supply. During this period, we waived off minimum quantity requirements and delivered diesel without any additional delivery costs.
Through the FUEL HUMSAFAR app, our services were functional, delivering diesel within the 8-hour working period. Our team continued to maintain proper hygiene and sanitising all equipments.
Bowser Fabrication Services
While we continued to support essential services with on-demand fuel supply, we also launched our bowser fabrication services in mid-2020.
Keeping in line with our commitment to safety, we developed and perfected PESO compliant, high-tech automated Bowsers for safe fuel transportation and delivery. As of today, we have fabricated and supplied over 300+ bowsers and continue to provide stellar after-sales service. Our bowser fabrication services are available in Uttarakhand, Madhya Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, West Bengal, Assam, Odissa, Tamil Nadu, Haryana, Punjab, Delhi, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Jammu & Kashmir, Gujarat, Kerala, Chandigarh, Chhattisgarh, Goa.
With an established presence Pan-India, going beyond our fabrication services, we also began offering end-to-end support to help acquire new customers, boost diesel sales, and provide superior quality after-sales service post-fabrication. Thus, promising something more - The promise of Bowser+.
Throughout 2020, our automated mobile fuel dispensers have successfully been displayed in various parts of the country - Gujarat, Amritsar, Nagpur, J&K, Amravati,Gwalior, Tikamgarh, Guna, Sagar, Bhopal, Indore, Hoshangabad, Jabalpur, Rewa to name a few.
In the midst of all this, the Government of India announced the successful launch of the FuelEnt (Fuel + Entrepreneur) programme. This gave us a leeway to help many other startups to also enter the Diesel Door delivery ecosystem.
Currently, we have partnered with over 200+ entrepreneurs, to help them kick start their businesses in diesel door delivery. This initiative has encouraged us to build a culture of entrepreneurship, generate employment, and use technology to innovate in the fuel industry.
We are beyond grateful today, as our initiatives and excellence in service, have awarded Humsafar the ‘Best Energy Start-up in India' by Entrepreneur India.
As we tread into another new year, a year full of possibilities and challenges, with innovation and technology rocking our world daily, we aim to continue to grow and provide stellar class service to all our partners who have stood by us in this journey.
