Eicher Trucks and Buses, a business division of VE Commercial Vehicles (VECV), has strengthened its ties with logistics and supply chain company Safexpress.

On August 31, Safexpress took delivery of both its 100th Eicher truck in its fleet during the current fiscal year as well as India’s first 5.5 T electric truck, the Eicher Pro 2055 EV.

Vinod Aggarwal, MD and CEO of VECV, commented: “I am pleased to see our relationship with Safexpress grow from strength to strength. Today, we are celebrating our association by marking the delivery of Safexpress’ 100th Eicher truck for this fiscal year, and the introduction of India’s first 5.5-ton GVW electric truck, the Eicher Pro 2055 EV. With our focus on sustainability and uptime, we look forward to continuing to strengthen our partnership with Safexpress."

Pawan Jain, founder and chairman of Safexpress, said: "Our enduring collaboration with Eicher has always been about excellence and innovation. By embracing electric mobility solutions, we aim to set industry benchmarks for sustainable transportation. This partnership signifies our resilience in adapting to evolving transportation needs and global environmental imperatives."

The new Eicher Pro 2055 EV uses Eicher's proven electric vehicle technology already in use in intra-city bus applications. The truck with deck length of 12 feet is offered with two fully built container solutions. The company provides both fast- and slow-charging options to meet the needs of specific applications. VECV's service solution also factors in availability of charging infrastructure, operational requirements, charging time constraints, battery capacity, and overall energy management strategies of the fleet. The truck will come equipped with Eicher’s advanced telematics solution and will be enabled by the My Eicher services.
