The Government of Sri Lanka has placed an order for 2,200 buses with Ashok Leyland. This is the one of the largest purchase by the Sri Lankan Transport Board (SLTB), as the Government aims to modernise its existing fleet and significantly improve the country’s public transport network.
Ashok Leyland will supply these 2200 buses within the next six months. With this latest order, Ashok Leyland reinforces its position as the market leader in Sri Lanka and as an important stake holder in Sri Lankan transport.
Commenting on the new order, Vinod K. Dasari, Managing Director, Ashok Leyland said, “This is a huge order especially at a time when the domestic market is just about to bounce back. This order reaffirms our strategy to substantially enhance our sales outside India”.
