“Sreeram will be responsible for growing our domestic truck and bus businesses,” DICV Managing Director & CEO Satyakam Arya said.

Daimler Truck released its second-quarter record adjusted return on sales of 10.3% for its industrial business in August, the company said, even as it faced rising monthly costs from inflation. Unit sales rose by 9% in the second quarter with revenue up 15%, indicating the company had upheld its strategy of combating rising costs by hiking prices – but incoming orders were down by 12% in the first half of the year.
