For transportation of goods in and around the city, the most easy to use and the most productive vehicles to be used are the light commercial vehicles (LCV). LCVs include pickup trucks, mini vans, and three wheeler vehicles. These vehicles are used by companies as well as private firms as they are small in size and can move through small streets and roads with ease. These compact trucks although are small, they are firm, robust, and tough- built and provide the best performance.
