Siddhi Vinayak Logistics to expand its inter-city bus service

Siddhivinayak-Temple-Mumbai-1Sidhi Vinayak Logistics Ltd, a Surat based logistics provider and emerging player in the inter-city bus segment, is in the process of expanding its inter-city bus service.

According to sources closed to the development, Siddhi Vinayak Logistics, through its passenger service arm SVLL Connect, has planned to expand its inter-city bus service business across western India.

The logistics giant is planning to purchase around 100 buses from commercial vehicle maker Scania in the near future to expand its inter-city coach service, sources said.

Siddhi Vinayak Logistics bought its first Metrolink bus from Scania a year ago to launch its super-luxury coach service.

Earlier Scania was supplying its buses to its Indian customers by importing them from its overseas manufacturing plants. Since March this year, the company started bus production at its manufacturing facility in Narasapura industrial estate near Bangalore a month ago.

After the commencement of bus production in India, Scania is expecting more bus orders from the private bus operators and public transport corporations as the cost of locally assembled bus will be comparatively cheaper than the imported ones.

The company is also having talks with Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) to sell its buses. It may be noted that Scania has offered two of its buses in 2014 to KSRTC for testing on long routes.
