The mining sector is one of the main drivers of the economy in Peru, the main passenger transport companies have a range of services aimed at mobilizing the personnel working in mining. One of them is Cruz del Sur, with more than 60 years of history and of them, about twenty with its institutional services division.
Always focused on providing a personalized service with high-quality standards for the mining and industrial sectors, Cruz del Sur received 7 Volvo B380R 4X2 Euro buses, bodied with the Irizar i6 model. These new vehicles will allow you to strengthen that relationship with the large mining sector customer with whom you have had a 9-year alliance. Business transportation currently represents more than 50% of revenues for the company, considering the pandemic, the slow recovery of national long-distance routes and the uncertainty due to the reactivation of international routes.
The new buses are part of the first group that Cruz del Sur receives, since starting in 2022 the Peruvian company will receive a second group of zero kilometer vehicles to provide a reliable, safe and quality service, welcoming the renewal of the contract.
The new Volvo B380Rs feature IShift intelligent automated transmission, EBS 4-wheel disc braking system, VEB engine brake and the Driver Support Systems active safety package. This system warns of the risk of a frontal collision, activates the emergency stop and is combined with the adaptive cruise control, the warning system of involuntary lane departure and the alerts for the driver.
All units have Hispacold ECO3 air purifier, approved by the National Institute of Aerospace Technology (INTA) of Spain; which has been shown to be effective in eliminating 99.7% of the SARS-Covid2 virus. It is important to point out that this acquisition is added to another 60 units acquired, of different configurations, for clients in the mining sector.
