Volvo targets non-mining sectors for truck sales growth

PT Volvo Indonesia, the local unit of the Sweden-based truck maker Volvo, says it will boost the sales of its UD Trucks in areas outside the mining sector in a bid to see business growth this year.ud_volvo

Orders for trucks from the mining sector have declined due to slowing mining activities, particularly coal, due to weak global demand.

PT Volvo Indonesia president director Pierre-Jean Verge-Salamon said on Thursday the company aimed to increase sales of the vehicles in construction, general cargo and the forestry and agriculture sectors, where demand would primarily be driven by the rapid development of infrastructure, export and import activities, food consumption and the mechanization of agriculture.
