Volvo bags largest ever order from Hubli-based VRL

Quote:
Chennai/Bangalore: Volvo, Swedish based bus maker has bagged its single largest order of 100 multiaxle buses from Hubli-based VRL Logistics. The deal is estimated to be 90 crore.

The Hubli based VRL Company has been a customer of Volvo Buses India Private Limited (VBIPL) since 2003. Vijay Sankeshwar, chairman, VRL Logistics said "During the next one year, we will add 550 commercial vehicles including 250 buses."

VRL which is one of the largest operators of commercial vehicles in India hosts about 2,800 vehicles and has about 250 buses in its fleet. Since their partnership with VBIPL in 2003, VRL has acquired about 48 buses. The deal has proven to be fruitful and hence they are shaking hands again to expand their business.

Akash Passey, managing director, VBIPL said, "This order which comes in tandem with Volvo Buses future expansion announcement flag bears the confidence that the customers today repose in Volvo and the Indian bus market."

Passey also said, "Volvo's strategy to continuously re-invent and improve its products and features was kept alive in 2010 by bringing in the CNG bus, introducing Euro IV regulations in its new facelift Euro IV city bus and the step to Volvo Bus Centers across key cities, to provide a higher level of service and experience for our customers and their drivers. Volvo is focused in offering the entire gamut of support services along with the product and is the first company to be singularly focused on only one business - buses."

Volvo Buses are expected a growth of 15-20 percent overall and the soft services to will give 50 percent of their revenue in 2013-14. Its revenues for the year 2010 are expected to be in the range of Rs 550 crore.

Volvo today has over 75 percent market share in the luxury inter-city AC coach segment and over 50 per cent market share in the AC Diesel Low Floor City buses, which are present across 12 cities in the country. Last week Volvo City Buses entered its 12th city - Mumbai. Currently, there are about 3,500 Volvo buses operating in India, both in the city and inter-city segments.

Ashok Leyland bags 600-vehicle order from VRL Logistics

Quote:
Hinduja flagship, Ashok Leyland has bagged an order for 600 vehicles from VRL Logistics that comprise 500 numbers of 3123 Multi-Axle Vehicle (MAV) in the 8×2 configuration, a newly developed, first of its kind for the Indian commercial vehicle industry, along with 100 nos. of the Company’s 12-metre buses. The order is cumulatively worth in excess of Rs. 125 crores, deliveries against which are expected to commence in a month’s time.

“Our entire business strategy revolves around a deeper understanding of our customers’ requirements and pain points to develop transport solutions that best meet their needs,” explained Mr. R. Seshasayee, Managing Director, Ashok Leyland. “A case in point is the 3123 (8×2) MAV that we have collaboratively developed with VRL, customized to suit their specific load-carrying requirements as India’s leading logistics company. The 3123 (8×2) is unique for it is the first time that a CRS engine is being offered on a vehicle platform in India. It is the only 31-tonner in the country with a 230 hp engine and its 30.5 feet load span makes it ideal to meet VRL’s requirement of weight and volume combination,” he added.
The 3123 (8×2) offers a higher rated payload and its 230 hp engine promises faster turnaround time that will together ensure higher productivity for its users. Ashok Leyland has been primarily responsible for creating the 31-tonne segment which is fast gaining acceptance across the country owing to the superior operating economics and better turnaround time that these trucks are able to deliver.
The 12-metre buses are also customized to meet VRL’s requirements and will be powered by 225 hp (BS III) CRS engines.
These 600 vehicles will be inducted into VRL’s fleet, 80% of which are Ashok Leyland vehicles.
Mr. Vijay Sankeshwar, Chairman, VRL Logistics said, “VRL has grown from a single truck company in 1976 to a leading logistics enterprise with a fleet of 2,691 vehicles, a 12,000+ strong team and operations spread across 911 branches covering 2,629 locations. Our growth has resulted both by constantly improving our internal efficiencies and, at the same time, drawing innovative product ideas and support from our partners, like Ashok Leyland, to create new product segments and drive growth for both partners.”
Elaborating on Ashok Leyland’s over three-decade-long relationship with VRL Logistics, Mr. Seshasayee added, “VRL has been a tough yet discerning customer to serve; they are a benchmark in terms of operations and maintenance. Our association has been a long and fruitful one and we are particularly proud to have been a part of their growth over the years.”
VRL Logistics’ association with Ashok Leyland goes beyond just vehicles to include areas like driver training, maintenance support and ‘Leyparts’ stocking facilities.
Among the many achievements of VRL is that they have been listed in the LIMCA Book of Records as the largest fleet operator in the private sector, and have also won the Best Logistics Provider for both the Retail and FMCG Sectors in 2009 by Frost & Sullivan Annual Logistics Benchmarking Award.
Mr. Seshasayee also inaugurated the new facility of Bellad Ashok Leyland, in Hubli today. Spread across over 80,000 square feet, of which 20,000 sq. ft is built-up area, this facility has a 10-bay workshop and the unique auto loop dispensing system, seen for the first time in servicing of commercial vehicles.
