Mahindra, the largest vehicle manufacturer in India, was recently given a thumbs up by several executives from different logistics companies who participated in the field tests of its vehicles.
Chris Guidotti, vice president for procurement of LBC said the Mahindra vehicles he tested passed the durability and reliability standards of the company for their delivery fleet.
“The Mahindra vehicles I tested passed the standards required of vehicles that have to be on the road with a load,” Guidotti said.
