Largest Volvo Truck Fleet
From a single truck at a mining site to a fleet of 1000 Volvo Tippers today, the success of Mahalaxmi Constructions is a unique journey. Four enterprising brothers from Gujarat joined hands to build one of the largest contract mining Transport companies with a humble beginning in 1985 to a 1400+ Cr turnover organisation now.
Underlining early the paradigm shift in the demands of the mining industry, Mahalaxmi Group began its association with Volvo Trucks in 2005 by ordering the first batch of 5-Volvo FM9 Tippers. By 2012, the Group had inducted 100 Volvo Trucks and this number grew to 500 by 2015. Today, Mahalaxmi Group operates across the country in 17+ sites with over 5000 employees.
Volvo’s site support model coupled with the best practices adopted by Mahalaxmi in the sites & consistent performance of Volvo Trucks enabled them to gain more confidence to expand their operations and execute the projects efficiently. Dynafleet solution & Uptime centre proved its role in efficient fleet management and driver performance to achieve operational efficiency.
