This is the first time this model is purchased and will be used in the mining sector
Transportes Línea, one of Peru’s largest and most important transport operators, has just bought 10 new Volare Attack 8 minibuses with 4X4 traction. This is the first purchase made by the Peruvian customer and the vehicles will be used to transport mining workers from their lodgings to the exploration tunnels.
According to Rodrigo Bisi, Volare’s export manager, the acquisition is the result of a long and extensive relationship and research work to develop vehicles according to Transporte Línea’s needs and applications. “It took several months and various meetings until we got to the configuration that would best meet the customer needs. The choice was also based on high standards of quality, safety, comfort and delivery time” he says.
“These are the first Volare Attack 8 4X4 vehicles to operate in the mining sector of Peru, which opens up new prospects for growth in that country as there is a demand for a robust vehicle that can travel in unpaved locations for other companies in mining, the most representative sector in the Peruvian economy, ”explains Rodrigo Bisi.
