The Volvo Group and Eicher Motors came together six years ago with a vision to modernize the Indian commercial vehicle industry. In line with the vision, significant improvements too have been made in the “After Sales” infrastructure to service the growing population of Eicher vehicles. With successful commissioning of VE parts distribution centre, parts availability has improved across the board for the Eicher brand. Apart from 270+ sales and service touch points and more than 1600+ service bays, an innovative site support model has also been set up through deployment of container set ups for off highway customers. These container set ups are deployed at more than 20 remote locations across the country. Various initiatives are in place to improve spare parts availability which include setting up of genuine parts shoppe and providing prompt product support/breakdown services to name a few. Other soft offerings like annual maintenance contracts, extended warranty and cashless insurance are also helping in creating a strong aftermarket differentiator for the Eicher brand. Driver training school is a special initiative taken by VECV to promote road safety and specialized “Fuel efficient Driving” programs are being run to sensitize the drivers on importance of fuel saving and thereby increase profitability of our customers.
