Mahindra ties-up with Repos Energy to cater to Doorstep Fuel delivery demand through their FURIO trucks

Mahindra’s Truck and Bus Division (MTB), a part of the Mahindra Group, has associated with Repos Energy to cater to Doorstep Fuel delivery demand through Ready Made Fuel Bowser trucks. The Doorstep Fuel delivery model has grown rapidly across the country and scaled up even faster in the post-Covid era. This is due to a multitude of factors including, the global supply chain & economics of fuel trade, structural constraints of the existing distribution model, changing buying behavior of consumers and technological disruption.

Speaking on the occasion, Chetan Walunj, Co-Founder, Repos Energy said, “While the entire world is moving towards making things easily accessible by going mobile, doorstep diesel delivery in India has eased the way fuel is being delivered in the country. Bringing diesel on wheels through mobile petrol pumps has been one of our major accomplishments, and with the product superiorities and suitability that Mahindra FURIO offers for Fuel Bowser application, we want to reach each and every corner of India and revolutionize the distribution of all kinds of energy in future. Our Fuel Bowser unit includes the features like Double dispensing units, Power Take-Off unit, Smart fuel level sensors, Brake interlock mechanism, Remote throttle, intelligent geo-fencing and an easy-to-use Repos App.”

Speaking on the occasion, Jalaj Gupta, Business Head – Commercial Vehicles, Mahindra & Mahindra Limited, said, “A major proportion of the diesel goes into fueling industries like mining, infrastructure, manufacturing, real estate, hospitality, etc. where it is often required in bulk. These industries resort to procuring diesel from fuel pumps using improper receptacles like barrels and bowsers which causes great losses in the form of spillage, pilferage, dead mileage, and manpower costs. Combining with the expertise of Repos Energy in Fuel Bowser business solution, we are introducing a compelling product offering to cater to the emerging need of industries and do our bit towards nation-building. Mahindra’s range of Light and the intermediate commercial vehicle come with their inherent advantages to make it a perfect fit for Fuel Bowser operation and ensure profitability.
