Ashok Leyland to supply 200 trucks to Bangladesh

Ashok Leyland will supply 200 trucks to the Government of Bangladesh. These trucks will be a part of a project from India under a USD 2 billion line of credit announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Ashok Leyland said in a release.

Ashok Leyland had won the tender floated by Bangladesh government for 135 fully-built trucks comprising 3T Truck, Hydraulic Beam Lifter and Sewerage Sucker. These had been handed over from India to the Bangladesh Roads and Highways Department in the current financial year. Now the company has been awarded an order for another lot of 65 Truck Mounted Wrecker, a specialized vehicle to be deployed by the Bangladesh government for various highway applications, the company added.

Amandeep Singh, Head – International Operation, Ashok Leyland, said, “Bangladesh is one of our key export markets and this supply further strengthens our position in the country. We are enthused by the various export facilitation measures taken by the government, and we plan to increase our volumes and footprint in overseas markets especially SAARC, GCC and Africa. Exports have been a strong focus for us to de-risk from cyclicality in the Indian market, and this is a significant step in that direction.”

Ashok Leyland is one of the leading commercial vehicle brands in Bangladesh and has more than 50 touch points across that country. Apart from supplying many vehicles from India, the company also assembles their range of trucks, buses, and LCVs locally at IFAD Auto Dhamrai plant in Bangladesh.
