Ceylon Roots, the inbound tour arm of Browns Group, has launched a comprehensive online logistics platform dedicated to hoteliers and driver-guides to provide transportation facilities to their guests.
Sri Lanka reopened its borders to international tourists earlier this year with a series of strict protocols and guidelines to ensure the safety of visitors and residents as tourism resumes.
The Ceylon Roots online transport portal has been specially set up to help hoteliers and their transport providers organize their clients’ transport.
Although Ceylon Roots is equipped with its own trained and certified driver and driver-guides as well as a fleet of vehicles, partners also have the option of registering their own staff (driver / driver-guide) and vehicles (under minimum standards reserve) as part of the service.
Newly recruited staff will receive comprehensive training to ensure that they will work in strict accordance with the guidelines implemented by the authorities.
This portal is ideal for hotels that are not able to integrate their own transport management system with their respective websites, as the Ceylon Roots system can be added free of charge as a white label widget to any website. Thanks to this, customers can book their transportation options at the time of booking their hotel (mandatory under current COVID-19 regulations) hassle-free.
On the other hand, this initiative paves the way for the formalization of the logistics side of the tourism industry, which is a timely requirement.
Most importantly, Ceylon Roots is committed to strengthening the tourism industry and its key players, which are heavily impacted by the decline in travel.
Commenting on the launch, Browns Leisure Inbound / Outbound General Manager and Business Development Director Dishan Perera said, “There are many benefits to partnering with Ceylon Roots including a hassle-free and cost-free transportation management system. . Partners will be able to generate additional revenue by providing highly reliable hotel transfer options to their clients, under the current operating model. In addition, Ceylon Roots welcomes hotels on board that wish to manage their travel counter using this technology, which will allow them to organize all transport needs remotely, with a minimum of
