Scania Commercial Vehicles in India has inked an exclusive partnership with PPS Motors, giving the latter the role of its sole representative for the OEM’s mining tippers in India.
Scania officials said the pairing will ensure it has Pan India coverage for its sales and service operations.
“The company provides tailor-made solutions by detecting, analyzing, and continuously optimizing critical points of the mine that lead to higher availability, increased productivity, and better customer profitability,” it said.
“This new collaboration is evidence to Scania’s assurance towards network expansion in India and advanced customer support.”
Johan Schlyter, managing director at Scania, called it the “foundation for an impactful alliance” for its India tippers: “By leveraging our cutting-edge technology, we are optimistic about making a substantial contribution to India’s efforts in reaching its Net Zero Emission goal.”
PPS has six established regional warehouses across India with close proximity to mining sites and strategically connected to Scania’s central warehouse in Nagpur – creating a “hub-and-spoke” model for the two to ensure a smooth, uninterrupted and swift supply chain for parts.
No financial details of the partnership were disclosed.
