Security and Technology
The Andesmar fleet:
We know that our customers deserve the best service, that's why our bus fleet is made up of the most modern units. Being technology and security leaders makes us fulfill our commitment to provide the best service. Andesmar has a fleet composed of 220 units: 169 semicama buses, 44 Cama and 9 Suite category buses.
Our passengers and crew safety is the cornerstone of the development of our work. For this reason, we have constant technical revisions of our units, permanent incorporation of technology, highly trained personnel and we are supported by brands such as Volvo (a Swedish leading automotive safety company) and Michelin (a prestigious tire manufacturer in the world). This allows us to reach the highest quality standards.
To reinforce our prevention policy, each of our cars is checked before and after each trip under the requirements of the European Economic Community.
The existence of bases of operations distributed in different areas of the country (such as Jujuy, Cordoba, Buenos Aires, Mendoza and Neuquén) provide us with important support, both for the mechanical reinsurance of cars, and for the changeover of the drivers; ensuring the proper functioning of the units and the proper rest of those who drive them.
The modern fleet of Andesmar includes state-of-the-art Volvo units, allowing us to provide security and comfort to our passengers. The Swedish company is at the forefront of technological developments, producing vehicles that are reliable and highly efficient in their performance.
Among the outstanding innovations of our units we find:
Automatic gearbox - I Shift
Unique in Latin America, for mass production buses. This allows an improvement in the vehicle circulation, and a more efficient use of the fuel, generating a significant energy saving. We reduce emissions to be eco-friendly.
The units have the ABS device, to prevent locking of the wheels, and ASR, which equals the traction force on the wheels, allowing a more secure brake system.
EPS damping system
It is a drive system that stabilizes the vehicle to avoid the vehicle overturning. Volvo units are the only to provide this technology in the country.
Our buses have a display to know the state of the engine, brakes, suspension, gearbox and lights, among other elements, for a precise real-time check of the units.
Andesmar chooses this leading company as their tire supplier. Michelin's designs withstand even the most demanding conditions of urban traffic and allow greater resistance to impacts. The wheel adherence and stability offered by the use of this tire, combined with greater tractive power in starts, braking and maneuvers. We make our trips safer and more comfortable.
