Shriram Transport Automall in Cuttack & Pathankot
Shriram Transport Finance Company Ltd launched two Shriram Automalls, one each in Cuttack and Pathankot. The Automall brings the country’s first single-window destination for trade of pre-owned trucks to the city. UG Revankar, Deputy Managing Director, Shriram Transport Finance Company Ltd, inaugurated both the malls.
Spreading across two lakh sqaure feet space, the facility is the first-of-its kind initiative, which allows the country’s large community of truck-owners to trade their vehicles in a hassle-free manner. Apart from trading of trucks, Automall facilitates the owners to seek financing and insurance options, as well as provides major and minor repair options. As an add-on facility, rest rooms for travel-fatigued truck drivers and cleaners are also provided. The company plans to have a PAN India network of 50 such Automalls strategically located on important highways of the country.
“Automall will benefit truckers by promptly replacing their vehicles, leading to modernization of the country’s trucking fleet. Creating value for our truck community with utmost transparency is our aim. The facility will house hundreds of pre-owned vehicles both in as-is-where-is and refurbished condition and truckers will be able to trade in a transparent manner. This is the first Automall in Cuttack and we hope that it brings progress and eases life of the truckers”,said Mr.U.G.Revankar, Deputy Managing Director, Shriram Transport Finance Company Ltd. on the occasion.
The Automall also houses Shriram One Stop, a computerised touch screen kiosk which is a virtual Truck Bazaar, providing real time information about used commercial vehicles available for sale. It will also simultaneously facilitate registration of individual buyer’s requirements. One Stop will bring more transparency in the process of buying and selling used commercial vehicles.
The Automall includes Shriram New Look, wherein refurbished pre-owned commercial vehicles are put on display for purchase along with inbuilt financing options.
