    Published on August 28, 2020

    Uttar Pradesh:    Humsafar, an app-based doorstep diesel delivery service provider, launched its services in the Holy Sangam city, Prayagraj, formerly known as Allahabad, the economic and agriculture hub of Uttar Pradesh.

    Humsafar’s doorstep diesel delivery services will now be available to industries, farmers, housing societies, hotels, hospitals, and other industries that require diesel for static and heavy earth moving equipment. Areas serviceable in and around Prayagraj includes Karchhana, Koraon, Phulpur, Naini, Bara, Meja, Sadar, Soraon, and Handia.

    Humsafar promises convenient and safe diesel delivery solutions with its fleet of Petroleum and Explosives Safety Organisation (PESO) compliant bowsers (delivery vehicles) and an easy-to-use app named “Fuel Humsafar” that allows users to place orders to their set location.

    “Prayagraj houses many agro-based industries along with other and major, medium, and small-scale industrial units.

    Our primary objective is to help industries, hospitals, farmers, and housing
    societies with a regular supply of diesel during this crisis, to sustain
    themselves. It saves them the hassle of transporting large amounts of diesel
    form the petrol stations to their desired location.” said Sanya Goel,
    Director, and Founder of Humsafar.

    “The major industrial names with production units in the Prayagraj district include Alstom, ITI, Limited, IFFCO, Reliance, Schneider electric, Bharat Pumps and compressors, SAIL, Areva, Dey’s medical, Baidyanath Ayurved, FCI, and EMC.” added Ms. Goel.

    Humsafar’s solution allows users to place orders on their apps and choose the desired quantity and delivery location. The PESO approved Bowsers with 3000 to 6000 liters capacity then fuels up at the station and arrives at the location within eight hours. With mobile fuel dispensers, the diesel is safely transferred at the destination with zero wastage and spillage. The trucks are also enabled with geo-fencing technology that allows users
    to track their movement.

    “We’ve used technology to make diesel delivery as hassle-free as possible. We have live tracking and automated billing features with assured quantity and quality. The mobile fuel dispenser will remain locked till it reaches the destination ensuring there is no wastage or pilferage,” said Dilpreet Sadana, Co-founder and Technology Head at Humsafar.

    Users with requirements for as little as 100 liters can avail Humsafar’s services. Orders exceeding 2500 liters will require the user to hold a PESO license for storage. Diesel is delivered at the market rate with no additional delivery charges.

    “Humsafar has 142 mobile dispensing bowsers in varied capacities and an experienced team of 35 people excluding bowser crews.

    We’re planning to expand our services to other cities soon,” concluded Goel.

    Humsafar is currently serviceable in Prayagraj (Uttar Pradesh), Haryana, NCR including Noida, Delhi, and Ghaziabad.
