Default Mercurio Pallia to launch "truck-on-truck" product, and target car transportation biz

Mercurio Pallia to launch "truck-on-truck" product, and target car transportation biz-truckontruck-concept-large.jpg

High Points:

- Mercurio Pallia Logistics, a joint venture company between Gruppo Mercurio SPA of Italy and Pallia Transport of India, is specifically targetting the "car carrying and trailer" business. The company plans to start manufacturing of specialized trailers and trucks from its newly set-up manufacturing facility in Rewari, Haryana. This facility is located close to Maruti's factory.

- To launch a first-of-its-kind “Truck-on-Truck” product (pictured above) in India.

- The company also plans to manufacture special wagons for railways which can carry cars all across India. The company expects this demand to shoot up once GST becomes applicable.

@GTO - a very ignorant question - What is a "truck on truck" product? How is it different from other truck transportations? I googled but did not find the answers.

See the picture which GTO has posted above. My best inference is that it is a trailer truck which can carry other brand new trucks from a factory. So some trucks on top another truck.

I have never seen a truck on truck. But a brand new truck (usually before the coachwork) being driven on road for delivery is not an uncommon sight on our highways.

The 4028 Primas coupled with 'Lohr' Trailers carrying trucks were a common sight even an year back. Lohr actually makes these trailers in India in a JV with TSI.
