We, at Eicher Trucks, are fully prepared to meet demand and are supplying high productivity, higher tonnage products with our full range that are very reliable with a high service life and proven mettle under tough operating conditions across a variety of applications, especially in construction and mining, where high performance trucks are needed.”

Commented Mr. Siddharth Kirtane, Vice President, Heavy Duty Trucks Business, (VECV), “At Eicher, we understand that for customers to become prosperous, their trucks need to operate continuously, and our aim is to facilitate this. Our ‘Think 100% Uptime’, currently available on selected products, will enable reduced downtime, and thereby, maximize profitability. Our unique EOS App will help customers log in emergency calls from their smart phone, and track the response of the GPS-enabled EOS vans. It is almost how you book your cab from your smart phone.”
A Sreerama Rao, Senior Vice President – Sales, Marketing, Aftermarket, Volvo Trucks, VECV, added, “With the advancement in technology, customers are looking beyond the product to see how they can be overall profitable.

Through our unique container site support model and on-site service vans, our customers’ trucks need not visit a workshop for repairs, rather, it is the workshop that visits the truck.”
