A privately-run professional tow-truck service in the Mekong Delta province of Tien Giang has facilitated rescue efforts in many serious traffic accidents in the region.
The service was set up in September 2001 by Nguyen Thanh Tam, a young man living in Tien Giang’s Cai Be District, with only two tow-trucks and a few drivers. Now his team includes six tow-trucks and 30 drivers and workers.
After the recovery team officially started operations, Mr. Tam carried out comprehensive research to pinpoint the high-risk areas of the locality and advertised his services to the local people. Anyone who reports an accident to his team will receive a commission of five percent of the total rescue cost.
