Asian Trucker – a fully-fledged transport business meeting-point
Asian Trucker started with a lubricant manufacturer asking, 'I want to boost sales for my heavy truck lubricants. How do I do that, where should I go?'
The obvious answer was, 'You put an ad into a truck magazine'. So, the client asked 'Then, find me a trucking magazine where I can advertise.'
However, even though transportation is a huge industry in Southeast Asia, we were amazed to find that there was no trucking magazine whatsoever to be found!
So, we started one ourselves, and six months later, the Asian Trucker Magazine was launched in Malaysia.
Many ways of meeting customers, suppliers and other industry decision-makers.Which suits you the best?
Today, Asian Trucker has grown into a well-visited communications and meeting platform for the truck and bus industry in SE Asia.
We offer several contact points with the industry - four print magazine editions, web site, e-news letter, events, seminars and our latest success, 'Malaysia International Bus, Truck and Component Expo' (MIBTCE), which was launched in 2013.
The participants, readers and contributors of Asian Trucker platform are decision-makers within the bus, truck and construction machine industry. Key readers are decision-makers, managers and drivers at truck and bus fleet owners and operators, as well as drivers and managers in logistics companies and container port operators.
Other stake-holders are decision-makers at suppliers and partners to the transport industry, such as vehicle manufacturing and sales, finance, insurance, fleet management companies, tires, parts and lubricants suppliers, and more.
A third important reader group, to improve the overall business conditions and raise knowledge and interest about the industry as a whole, are local and national legislators and decision-makers within the public sector.

The largest industry exhibition in SE Asia - (MCVE)
Asian Trucker Media is also a pioneer in trade exhibitions for the commercial vehicle industry. Organized and hosted by our dedicated team, the Malaysia International Bus, Truck and Component Expo (MIBTC) 2013 took the market by storm.
Over 8,000 square meters were taken up by exhibits and thousands of visitors came attended the expo. The Asian Trucker Networking night provided a superb venue for the industry to mix and mingle and to exchange thoughts and to catch up with long-standing partners.
Asian Trucker Drivers Club makes good drivers even better
The focus of this CSR initiative are the key people of the industry - the drivers.
Skillful drivers are highly sought after as their driving behaviour has a huge impact on the bottom line of transport companies. Also, they have to master the latest vehicle technology, the most sophisticated fleet management systems, road safety, and with market liberalization, understanding local rules and languages may be a crucial asset for truck drivers as well as for the employers, when carrying goods from country to country.
Therefore, Asian Trucker took the initiative to start a club for the Drivers, which will serve as a platform to help elevate the drivers' profession.
This club will be going the extra mile by providing valuable training to members to enhance skills and to keep up with the latest technical developments. Companies may register their drivers as incentive or to outsource their training to Asian Trucker. Besides training, the Club will also host memer events to meet and celebrate their profession. Several businesses have already pledged their support and we are planning to launch the Asian Trucker Drivers Club in other markets as well. Register now or contact us for more information.
