“Simply Number One”: MAN TGX, Truck of the Year 2021

The new MAN TGX is the “International Truck of the Year 2021” (ITOY). The ITOY Award is one of the most prestigious awards in the commercial vehicle market. In a virtual ceremony, Andreas Tostmann, CEO of MAN Truck & Bus, accepted the coveted award from ITOY President Gianenrico Griffini. The jury of 24 trade journalists representing the 24 most important European specialist truck journals recognised the new MAN TGX as being particularly advanced in terms of driving comfort, working and living conditions, safety, fuel efficiency, connectivity, innovative services, and operator control and display philosophy.

“The title 'International Truck of the Year' is tremendous recognition for the outstanding work put in by our team at MAN. For more than 5 years now, the team has been working with a single objective in mind: to develop the best truck for drivers and our customers and to get it out on the road. This coveted award just goes to show: We did it,” says Andreas Tostmann, Chief Executive Officer at MAN Truck & Bus, happily, at the virtual awards ceremony. 

The members of the jury appointed for the “International Truck of the Year Award” (ITOY) have had the opportunity to get to know the new MAN TGX inside out since February 2020. In addition to its driving comfort, the driver's workplace with its clearly arranged, fully digital display instruments, the intuitively operable driving and multimedia functions incorporated into the new, generously adjustable multifunction steering wheel and the innovative, distraction-free rotary pushbutton control function of the MAN SmartSelect system impressed the jury. The ITOY jurors were just as positive about the living conditions in the new driver’s cab. During the test drives, they were also bowled over by the outstanding efficiency of the Euro 6d driveline of the new MAN TGX, which offers fuel savings of up to 8.2 percent compared to the previous version when coupled with the aerodynamic refinement of the cab design and the GPS cruise control system MAN EfficientCruise, which now exhibits an even greater degree of anticipation. The jury also highlighted the high level of safety, which, with functions such as the radar-based turn assist and lane change support systems, Lane Return Assist and assisted driving in traffic jams, not only takes pressure off the driver but also contributes significantly to the safety of other road users. Last but not least, the new MAN TGX made a particularly trendsetting impression with the ITOY experts thanks to the high degree of connectivity provided by its electronic architecture, which is the first of its kind in the commercial vehicle sector, and the range of digital services associated therewith. 

“The new MAN TGX represents a major step forward in terms of driver comfort, fuel efficiency, connectivity and human-machine interface. So there is no doubt why the new MAN TGX was voted Truck of the Year 2021. It is a future-oriented truck that meets the transport needs of today and tomorrow,” said ITOY President Gianenrico Griffini, summarising the jury members' verdict at the awards ceremony. In accordance with the rules of the International Truck of the Year award, the annual award is presented to the truck released in the last 12 months that has made the greatest contribution to the sustainable development of road haulage. The evaluation criteria are technical innovations and refinements, but also innovation that contributes to overall cost-effectiveness, safety and environmental relief.

 “Simplifying Business” - Focussing on Transportation Companies and Drivers
In February 2020, MAN Truck & Bus unveiled the new MAN Truck Generation to the public for the first time. These brand-new trucks with the lion on their radiator grilles have been heading out to their new owners throughout Europe since the early part of the summer. As soon as conceptual development work began, MAN set about asking 300 transport companies and 700 drivers for regular feedback on their requirements for the new truck and incorporated this feedback into the design of the new MAN Truck Generation. As a result, the new vehicles are even more consistently aligned with these companies’ needs with regard to operational and cost efficiency and offer the driver unique workplace ergonomics, comprehensive safety and a wonderfully relaxing environment during rest periods. 

From the outset, the objective was to take as much strain off drivers and contractors as possible in their day-to-day work against the backdrop of increasingly complex challenges such as growing freight volumes and ever stricter CO2 regulations, a growing shortage of drivers and the advancing digitalisation of logistical processes. The new MAN Truck Generation achieves this with its outstanding product quality in terms of driver orientation, efficiency, safety and technical sustainability. Not only that, MAN also sets standards as a strong and competent partner in terms of support from the moment contact is made with a customer due in part to new product logic that is consistently geared to the vehicle's intended use and many years of industry expertise in a wide range of applications and bodies. When combined with the impressive MAN Service network and innovative digital workshop services for optimum vehicle availability, the new MAN Truck Generation becomes an unrivalled comprehensive package that is tailored to the transportation industry, making the day-to-day work of transport companies and drivers easier on a consistent basis, true to the MAN motto of: “Simplifying Business”.

AIMTRANS drivers are also delighted with the performance of the HAMMAR sideloaders. Through more efficient handling of containers, AIMTRANS drivers claimed that they are able to make more trips per day. Thus, earning them more money. 

All Sectors Must Engage to Meet Asia Pacific's Road Safety Challenge—ADB VP

Road safety is a growing public health concern in Asia and the Pacific that kills more than one person a minute—a challenge that requires the engagement of all sectors of society, Asian Development Bank (ADB) Vice-President for Knowledge Management and Sustainable Development Bambang Susantono told a workshop today.

“While governments have the primary responsibility to ensure road safety, the magnitude of this crisis requires all segments of society to engage and to contribute, including the private sector,” Mr. Susantono said. “This is where a good partnership between governments and development organizations can help find ways to drastically reduce the number of fatal and serious injuries from road crashes in the coming years.”

He was speaking at the first workshop on the implementation of the Asia Pacific Road Safety Observatory (APRSO) on the sidelines of the Asia and the Pacific Transport Forum 2020 taking place online from 24 to 28 August.

According to ADB estimates, on average, more than 2,000 people lose their lives in road crashes in the region every day and many more sustain serious life-changing injuries. “More than one person dies every minute, and as I speak for 10 minutes, 14 people will have lost their lives on the roads of Asia and the Pacific,” Mr. Susantono told participants at the workshop.

APRSO is envisioned to be the leading forum on road safety data, policies, and practices across Asia and the Pacific. It will help improve the quality of road safety data, support the monitoring of regional and global road safety targets, promote effective policies and evidence-based road safety interventions across the region, as well as the use of best practices.

ADB serves as secretariat and host of the observatory, which is supported also by the World Bank Group, International Automobile Federation, International Transport Forum, UNESCAP, and the Global Road Safety Facility.

Mr. Susantono emphasized that ADB is committed to improving road safety in the region, embedding road safety in all road projects, supporting subregional road safety initiatives, and working closely with other agencies and governments to support global road safety agendas.

ADB is committed to achieving a prosperous, inclusive, resilient, and sustainable Asia and the Pacific, while sustaining its efforts to eradicate extreme poverty. Established in 1966, it is owned by 68 members—49 from the region.

Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City 2021 Steps Into a New Automotive Industry Era

In recent years, Vietnam’s automotive industry has grown at an average annual rate of 20 to 30 percent. The improvement to corporate governance, foreign trade and investment, and relationships with international markets through bilateral agreements nurture a positive local operating environment. Companies are now seeking to expand their businesses and production bases into Vietnam. From 30 June to 2 July 2021 at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center (SECC), Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City will work with prominent associations to unite local and overseas players, exploring diverse opportunities in Vietnam’s auto market.

The Vietnamese Government has placed the automotive manufacturing sector at the core of its developmental roadmap for merging the local supply chain with a wider global network. In line with these efforts, the highly anticipated EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA), that took effect in August 2020, will phase out 99 percent of tariffs on traded goods. Similar to Free Trade Agreements with other ASEAN countries, one of the significant advantages of the EVFTA is an expected 43 percent increment of exports to the EU by 2025; thus, a substantial contribution to the global supply chain.

Equally, the agreement will divert more foreign direct investment into the country. It will bring in the necessary technology and training to develop advanced products and services in the local original equipment manufacturing sector, aftermarket and supporting industries. At the same time, Vietnam is likely to import more high-quality auto parts and components from the EU due to lower tariffs. This is set to boost the production capacity of automotive manufacturing and assembly to, in turn, play a part in the country’s global competitiveness of Vietnamese-made-vehicles.

To pinpoint these prospects, Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City 2021 is placing collaboration at the forefront of the fair’s evolving approach to sustainable local automotive industry development. Synergy shaped by informed, networked and empowered stakeholders, which have an active role in the wider auto community, will become an integral part of the collaborative platform. For example, last edition of the show drew in a number of renowned visitors, include Bosch, Bridgestone, BMW, Honda, Hyundai, MAHA, Mitsubishi, Thaco, Vingroup and more. Bringing this momentum forward, the fair aims to utilise these global networks to foster multilateral conversations across the value chain, generate greater know-how and deliver multifaceted experiences to promote the growing automotive market in Vietnam.

Ms Fiona Chiew, Deputy General Manager, Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, commented: “Through the trade deal, Vietnam is creating more investment channels and skilled workers for the automotive service industry. The industry has been a major GDP driver for the country and it will continue to emerge in the global supply chain at an accelerated speed. Together with the backing from local supporters, Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City 2021 will connect international players, investors and local businesses through a series of dedicated fringe events and networking activities, with the intent to strengthen the collaborative platform.”

Countrywide support from local industry associations
From Hanoi in the North, to Ho Chi Minh City in the South, the show continues to gain recognition from long-term local supporters like the Vietnam Automotive Technicians Network (OTO-HUI), the Vietnam Association of Mechanical Industry (VAMI) and the Vietnam Automobile Transportation Association (VATA). For the first time in the show’s history, the Vietnam Association for Supporting Industries (VASI) will also join as a local supporter.

VASI is a key association contributing to policy planning and promoting Vietnam’s supporting industries, which includes the processing and manufacturing sector. Ms Truong Thi Chi Binh, Vice Chairman of VASI, commented: “In our mission to foster the development of supporting industries, we are looking for fast-growing platforms that can support our ongoing work. Leveraging Automechanika Ho Chi Minh City’s strong international business network, especially in the EU, we are confident that collaborating with the platform will help facilitate business growth between local and overseas companies. Because of this, I see a bright future for the processing and manufacturing sector as it expands and advances domestically, and eventually integrates into the global supply chain.”

Taking advantage of the expertise from local industry associations, the show has curated a series of fringe programme events that highlight the robust opportunities in the local market. For example:

• Premium members from VASI will join the Smart Factory and Industry 4.0 Conference offering insights into the long-term development of automotive manufacturing and its supporting industries. Key automakers and manufacturers will be able to exchange ideas with attendees.
• Using their extensive local network, OTO-HUI will invite auto service centres, workshops, manufacturers, as well as car enthusiasts to the Auto Service & Maintenance Festival. Pre-registered visitors can enjoy one-stop, onsite diagnostics and maintenance services for free.

All-rounded coverage from exhibitors gather at the show Spanning across the show floor, more than 400 exhibitors from the Automotive manufacturing & automation, Passenger and Commercial vehicle, and Motorcycle segments will present their latest innovations, technologies, products and services to the Vietnamese market. Leading exhibitors in various product categories include the likes of:

• TÜV Rheinland Vietnam, an internationally-recognised technical service provider founded in Germany, are debuting in the 2021 edition. They will showcase expertise in testing, inspection and certification for a number of products and fields.
• Liqui Moly, the German lubricant specialist from the Diagnostics & Maintenance sector, will bring their collection of motor oil, additives and car care related products to the fairground.
• CTR, a Korean brand from the Parts & Components sector will also join the line-up, presenting a wide variety of parts and components for suspension, steering and brake systems.
• Prodyver, an Italian company specialising in paper roll tailoring products for the Diagnostics & Maintenance sector, will display products that suit the needs of the collision repair industry.
