On this February 12 technical team of the company Canasvieiras Transports performed the technical inspection of the 2018-02B lot, composed of 11 heavy units for operations in the Phoenix Consortium. The vehicles have Marcopolo Torino-S Plus bodywork and Mercede Benz OF1721L chassis, with pneumatic suspension, air fresheners and customized interior within the standard applied by the Consortium for the collective service. They already have special preparation for the video monitoring and tracking system, as well as with a wider cockpit for drivers, and a differentiated design at the front entrance for the customer. Offering 44 seats, the units will replace smaller heavy vehicles in operation, improving the service to customers of the lines served. The company did not receive lots of conventional vehicles from the Rio de Janeiro plant since 2014. Between 2014 and 2018, all the company's vehicles were produced in Caxias do Sul, Rio Grande do Sul. According to Marcos Lopes, the logistics staff of the company and responsible "The Marcopolo Rio team called us to evaluate the series head, that is, the vehicle that has the inspection considered standard for replication in the rest of the fleet.We are happy to note that the main items for the company, in particular finishing and the quality of the interior of the salon as well as customer items, are above the average compliance submitted for the Torino product. " The production in the Rio de Janeiro plantation is strategic according to the same. "The Rio plant is focused on urban vehicles and especially on the Torino product.This allows a greater specialty in the details of this particular product, as well as there is no mixing with road vehicle schedules, which can increase waiting time and delivery of new units. " The inspection process applied is the same as that used in previous batches, recording nonconformities and improvement opportunities with the supplier's POI. "Now our teams will receive the vehicles, and evaluate if the points have been corrected, assigning notes for each bus and retro feeding the system, so that the next inspections already contain the improvements of this," he concludes. The vehicles are expected to be operational by the end of February and beginning of March, in conventional lines of the Phoenix Consortium.
