Commenting on this launch, Amit Jain, Founder/CEO CarDekho.com said, It takes broad vision of an entire industry to commit to an idea. TrucksDekho is just that idea reaching execution at the right time. Commercial Vehicle industry in India has surged over the past decade and the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 16%. This is our effort to be part of this growing industry by helping trucks and commercial vehicles buyers do research and make decisions about what to buy.
The commercial vehicles market is expected to be at 1.6 million units by 2016-17 – with top players like Tata Motors (47% Market Share) followed by Mahindra and Mahindra (25% Market Share) and Ashok Leyland (15% Market Share) leading this industry.
Robinder Gauba, Vice President – Business Development & Strategy adds “We expect the demand for Trucks to grow significantly FY16 onwards, which would intensify the competitive landscape and augment qualified opportunities in the industry – making room for a friendly electronic platform to support buyers’ actions. Hence a portal like TrucksDekho makes more sense than ever. What we have analysed and found that over time there is a steady improvement in fleet utilization levels and shipping rates. This has an impact on bringing down the burden on transporters.”
Designed with features like Price Updates, EMI Calculator, Event Coverage, Finance and Dealer Offers, the portal allows buyers to be guided across different offerings and application types.
