Opportunities in the Peruvian market

November 2015

One of the features of collective mobility in Peru is the widespread use of coa­ches on medium and long-distance routes. Among the main road transport operators in Peru, Movil Tours stands out due to offering the latest generation of vehicles, characterised by elements that provide greater safe­ty and comfort to its customers. With over 25 years of experience in the market, Movil is committed to providing a personalised service which is capable of attracting customers with the offer of internal refinements through five catego­ries of service, with the most luxurious featuring GPS track­ing systems, onboard meals, audio and video entertainment and seats that recline between 140° and 180°.

The operator recently renewed its fleet with the purchase of new coaches, with Irizar brand coachwork, produced in Brazil. The 15-metre lon­g vehicles (30 in all) have i6 coachwork and two classes of service, executive and presidential, with a 2 + 2 and 2 + 1 se­at configuration, respectively. 15 of the coaches have Mercedes-Benz chassis while the other 15 have Sca­nia chassis.

According to the Spanish brand, Peruvian operators are weighing up the possibility of investing more in longer single-decker coach bodies in ord­er to achieve greater profitability, safety and comfort. When choosing larger coaches, operators are also thinking of the greater load volume that can be carried. That’s why the coach body manufacturer developed a structural solution that enables the optimisation of luggage racks, with the opti­mum use of space.

Another feature to attract operators and increase their efficiency is the esta­blishment of fleet management with technology developed by the coa­ch body manufacturer, enabling the customer to focus on operation while the coach body manufacturer takes care of maintai­ning the coachwork.

On September 24th of last year, Movil Tours unveiled its new passenger terminal in Lima, Peru, along with the new coach route with 60 single-decker units, with a US$16 million investment, which will enable the company to increase the number of passengers travelling on the interstate transport line by 20%.
