Ralco Tyres & BBDO seek to take pressure off delivery executives

Ralco Tyres has launched a new initiative, titled #NoPressureDelivery. The brand hopes to create awareness and ease the pressure faced by delivery executives of quick commerce, who are tasked to complete their orders within mere minutes.

The initiative urges users to make a simple change. By writing ‘No Pressure Delivery’ as part of delivery instruction, thereby lifting the pressure on the rider to deliver the users’ order in a rush. Also, this way, the apps would know that users are willing to wait for a little longer ensuring the safety of the rider.

Launched through a short video featuring actor and philanthropist Sonu Sood, the brand empathises with delivery executives who spend most of their working hours on roads, braving uneven roads, rains, and traffic and risk of accidents. The brand highlights that pressure should be applied to tyres and not people.

The initiative is a follow-up to the year-long campaign that highlights Ralco Tyres’ ability to handle extreme pressures of the roads. Reacting to the campaign, Manjul Pahwa, Director, Ralson India, said, “At Ralco, we make tyres that can handle any and all pressure, so we understand the pressure that delivery executives go through each day. “No Pressure Delivery” is an initiative that we hope will help ease the pressure on the delivery riders and spark a much needed conversation.”

Yogeshwar Sharma, VP - Marketing Communications , Ralson India, added here, “In an era dominated by social media, Ralco Tyres has chosen to bring to the fore social and human angles of certain deserving subjects of commerce and trade. Risk to the life of delivery boys in meeting tight timelines is one subject which Ralco has recently raked up for social conversations through philanthropist Sonu Sood. We hope this drive leads to a social change and the concept of “No Pressure Deliver” catches up to bring respite to the growing community of delivery boys.”

Speaking on how the idea came to light, Hemant Shringy, Chief Creative Officer, BBDO India (Mumbai), said, “When we joined hands with Ralco more than four years ago, together we crafted the brand’s ideology of ‘Tread New Paths’. And with each piece of work that we have done since, we attempted to make a difference. With #NoPressureDelivery, the brand takes a thought leadership stance. While it’s amazing that there are constant innovations and new offerings in the world, it’s important to pause and think, do we really need this? Is this sustainable? ‘No Pressure Delivery’ is a humane plea in the tech-enabled world.”

Priyanka Rishi, GM & EVP, BBDO India (Mumbai), elaborated, “We believe brands can impact societal narratives. Hence, we keep a sharp look-out for evolving behaviours that might need to be questioned, re-shaped or reframed. In today’s context, #NoPressureDelivery is one such important conversation. Grateful for brave client partners at RalcoTyres, who hold the same belief and want to drive positive change.”
