While the company has been a leader in the mining segment trucks, it is now planning to expand presence in other segments and express cargo movement is one such area where it would like to have a strong presence, he added.

"Our partnership with Volvo and the first deployment of tractor-trailers in express trucking is a significant step towards 'Getting Future Ready'," Delhivery Chief Executive Officer & Co-Founder, Sahil Barua said.

Volvo Trucks International Senior Vice President Per-Erik Lindstrom said the introduction of Volvo FM420 4x2 solution in India is the right time as the country has caught up with the global standards of transport efficiency.

"Countries like China and a few other south-east Asian countries, which were similar to India, a few years ago, changed from rigid trucks to high performance and higher capacity tractor-trailer concept. We at Volvo Trucks will continue to lead innovations in products and services thereby raising the bar further," he added.
