Manage the Unexpected with Swvl Business Employee Transport Solution

Home > Swvl Business > Blog

In today’s competitive environment, providing employee transport can improve your business’s success by ensuring employees are where they need to be and when they need to be there. However, trying to manage this without an employee transport solution can be a complex and unpredictable operation. 

From traffic jams to unexpected accidents to inaccessible pick-up and drop-off locations, a lot can go wrong during the employee’s journey to your workplace. Even if your company can devote the resources to improve employee transport, variables like vehicle capacity, schedules, and more are hard to organize and monitor. 

So whether you’re actively trying to improve the problem or letting employees find their own way to work, employee transport can drain your resources, costing you money and time. 

Your business doesn’t have to settle for traditional transportation options. Swvl Business can help solve many transportation problems your employees face to ensure your workforce is on time and efficient. 


Unpredictable situations lead to unreliable employee transportation 

Transporting employees from point A to point B seems simple, but delays like accidents, traffic, and other unexpected situations can make something simple into a complex equation. 

1 hour and 45 minutes That's the average journey time to and from work in Dubai, shown in a study conducted by

By comparison, Cairo, traditionally noted for its hectic traffic congestion, came in second, about 12 minutes behind Dubai. If your employees didn’t leave on time and weren’t expecting a major delay, that’s a loss for your company. 

Although accidents and traffic congestion are unpredictable (even if often related), it doesn’t mean you can’t react to them as soon as you know about them. With Swvl Business employee transport solution, every point of contact stays informed of the current transit situation at all times. 

Through Swvl Business’ dynamic routing, drivers (or “Captains” as we like to call them), riders, managers, and other users stay informed if an accident or other event causes delays. GPS systems optimize the route to get the captains back on track to pick up and drop off employees in a timely manner. To ensure that nothing gets in the way of getting employees where you need them, multiple backup systems are in place so that your employees are picked up and dropped off on time.

By efficiently managing your employee transport, you can reduce the impact on your business and your employees by getting staff where they need to be when they need to be there, regardless of what the roads throw at you.

Complex employee transportation has manageable variables

More than 75% of the total population lives in urban areas
