Due to the nature of the activities, safety and sustainability are high priorities in the mining industry. Sustainability entails efficient and responsible action with regard to people and the environment, as well as the deployment of durable equipment and materials that will stand the test of time. At BAS Mining Trucks, these issues play a key role in all of the decisions we make during the conduct of our business operations.


“Safety is, and must always be, the basic principle behind all design,” said Volvo’s founder many decades ago. We have lived according to that motto ever since, and the Volvo FMX is no exception. All our cabs meet plrevailing safety standards – including Swedish cab safety requirements, which are the strictest in the world. The driver environment, both inside and outside the cab, is equipped so the driver can do his job in a safe way without risking his own or anyone else’s safety.”

Cabin reinforcements

Volvo truck cabins are reinforced:

  • The cabin frame is made of high quality steel and is reinforced on the front side and at the doors.
  • The anchorages are designed to be a bit flexible. Due to this, the cabin can be pressed backwards, which prevents the driver against major injuries from the front side.


When we develop a truck our goal is clear: to minimize its environmental impact. Volvo creates customer value in ethical, responsible ways, beyond here and now.

The equipment provided by BAS Mining Trucks offers the perfect solution for distances ranging from as little as 2 kilometres to as fast as 100 kilometres between the mine and the ore processing plant. This results in instant savings in purchasing, maintenance and fuel costs.

Due to the nature of its activities, the mining industry has, in addition to a positive effect on the economy, also an enormous impact on both the environment and the quality of life of local residents. Therefore, companies in this sector attach great value to safety and sustainability.

For instance, to express our social commitment to the inhabitants of the region of BAS Mali, BAS Mining Trucks decided to sponsor a charity project.

“Children are the future and education is therefore of great importance. We have decided to contribute to a project in which the computer room of a school in Kenieba is renewed”

Furthermore, at BAS we support a great number of initiatives and activities that demonstrate our social responsibility. We pay particular attention to young people. After all, providing the next generation with the best chance in life is the precursor to making a better world. So at BAS, putting our money where our mouth is, we have set up BAS Family Fund. For every vehicle we sell, 10 euros goes to the fund. This enables us to support national and international foundations committed to supporting the wellbeing of underprivileged young people. Some other projects we support:

Stichting Niños Unidos Peruanos
Stichting Niños Unidos Peruanos is dedicated to caring for severely neglected children in and around Cusco, the old capital city of the Incas in the Peruvian Andes. The foundation is looking to give back to the chances that were taken from them or denied them because they have the right to be able to lead a useful life, the right to respect and the right to being valued as a person.

Stichting Bogota Zonder Honger
In Colombia many people live on or below the poverty line and many of these are children living in Bogota, the capital city. The Stichting Bogota Zonder Honger ensures that these children have at least one warm meal a day and is trying to provide them with reception and activities.
