Rajaram Krishnamurthy, Vice-President, BharatBenz Marketing, Sales and Customer Service said, “The capability, reliability and comfort of BharatBenz trucks has won us many customers in the challenging, high-altitude terrain of the Ladakh region. We are proud of our partnership with PAL Trucking, which has rapidly expanded its presence in the Jammu & Kashmir region with five sales and service touchpoints in a short period of time. We see an increasing demand for our heavy-duty trucks in the J&K region as our products have proven their mettle in the harshest conditions while consistently contributing to the infrastructure development of our country. With this new outlet, our network footprint increases to 280 touchpoints.”
