Johore Transporters Choose Euro V-powered MAN TGS

Euro V-powered MAN Trucks continue to be the choice of Johor-based transporters for their proven performance and low emission engines that enable businesses to fulfil their sustainability commitments and excellent aftersales support. 

MAN Truck & Bus (M) Sdn Bhd (MAN Malaysia) recently handed over new MAN TGS 6x2 to two new first-time customers -- Kulai-based Pacific Oils & Fats Industries Sdn Bhd and Pasir Gudang-based Syarikat Wijaya (Masai) Sdn Bhd at the MAN Johor Bahru branch.

Pacific Oils & Fats Industries, which processes about 3,000 metric tonnes of palm oil a day and markets its cooking oil under the Avena brand, will be using their five new MAN TGS to transport palm oil between its refinery in Kulai and tank depot at Pasir Gudang. 

The company’s Senior Manager FMCG and Planning, Syed Muhammad Zohaib, said that the decision to add five new MAN Trucks to its 19-strong truck fleet was driven by MAN’s superior specifications.  

“We understand that the new MAN TGS offers more pulling power and higher fuel efficiency and are looking forward to testing the new MAN Trucks in actual operations.  We are a growing company and will certainly consider buying more when the need arises,” he said.  

For palm oil logistics specialist Syarikat Wijaya (Masai) which operates a fleet of 45 palm oil tankers, the excellent aftersales support from MAN Johor Bahru for its previous batch of second-hand MAN Trucks convinced the company to invest in two new MAN TGS. 

“MAN’s Johor Bahru service centre is only 15 minutes away from our base and we are extremely pleased with their service so far.  Our trucks ply the entire West Coast of Peninsular Malaysia from Johor to Kedah.  In these long haul routes, a comfortable working environment for our drivers is very important as the truck is their second home. We decided to buy the new MAN TGS as our drivers like its spacious cabin, power, handling and safety,“ said Thavarajan Vijya Kumar, Operations Manager. 

MAN Malaysia Managing Director Andrew O’Brooks thanked both companies for choosing the MAN TGS with low-emission Euro V engines as standard that have proven to be able to help businesses achieve both sustainability and profitability goals. 

“We are delighted to see more and more transporters in Johor join the MAN family due to strong recommendations from the growing number of satisfied MAN customers and drivers.  All credit to the MAN Team in Johor for their excellent work in meeting the needs of our customers,” he said.
