OTO will be formed as a separate company, OTO Platform Limited, for the Carrier Marketplace, with Ibnul Kais Aryan as the Managing Director of the new venture.

Introbangla applied to BRTA on 16th January for their enlistment certificate. Introbangla said consumers, carriers, retailers, small entrepreneurs and the unemployed would be benefited if the application is launched.

OTO for the Carriers

The initiative aims to create a Carrier-friendly platform and facilitate Carriers to:

  • Income insurance
  • Health insurance

According to Introbangla, the country’s carrier driver spend a significant portion of earnings on accommodations. So they can neither take proper food nor afford accommodations. Despite an eagerness for more earnings, they have no choice but to depend solely on single-sided earnings. The proposed marketplace will create a new, fruitful, and ground-breaking sector for carrier drivers with multiple incomes. The conglomerate says it believes the platform will be able to help stabilize the carrier market.

OTO’s sales strategy is based on the premise that maintaining the highest level of customer service is the easiest way to create repeat customers. This is based on the fact that the industry is relatively large and specialized, and that it is important to be known for great customer service, said its founder & CEO Mr. Ibnul Kais Aryan.

“We have divided the market segment into four categories and have built three products based on their needs,” said the CEO, Ibnul Kais Aryan. “In Segment 1, there are Consumers who intend to ship their packages, trade, ride, exchange goods, and more, while in Segment 2, there are Carriers who want to earn income or are looking for an income source; in Segment 3, there are Traders who intend to deliver quickest their commodities; and in Segment 4, there are Partners who intend to become merchant, franchisor and logistics business owner.

The initiative was Bangladesh’s leading local RoadTech platform, aiming to operate its service in 64 districts. It was started in 2017 as a transportation & logistics service called Carbangla and now it has been rebranded to OTO and scaled its features.

Trips or drives, moves or deliveries, sends or receives, buys or sells will be its features. Anytime and for everyone a one-stop on-demand Carrier Marketplace for in-demand people offering comfortable lives at home.

The main objective of the application is to generate huge subscribers through an on-demand application and generate sustainable revenue through multiple services.

Introbangla Company officials said establishing a self-contained application is time-consuming since it requires a plethora of software and updated technology. OTO has a team of experienced professionals, and a readily available technology solution comprised of three applications (OTO, OTO Carrier & OTO Partner) that form a single system.

They said the initial launch might take three to four months after the approvals are obtained. Initially, OTO application will relaunch Transportation, On-demand Parcel Delivery, and Trade Pack facilities. Later they will bring the unique services to the customer level one by one.
