The introduction of Tata Super Ace is vital to support LEL Express’ driver contractors in expanding its last mile delivery capabilities.
DRB-HICOM Commercial Vehicles (DHCV), the distributor of Tata Motors commercial vehicles in Malaysia, held a ceremony to hand over the first two Tata Super Ace trucks to two driver contractors of LEL Express, Reza Sadon Enterprise and CFD 74 Enterprise.
LEL Express is the logistic arm of Lazada Malaysia and the introduction of Tata Super Ace is said to be vital in supporting LEL Express’ driver contractors in expanding its last mile delivery capabilities.
The ceremony was witnessed by Rohime Shafie, Head of Automotive Distribution, Manufacturing & Engineering, DRB-HICOM Berhad, Rudrarup Maitra, Head – International Business, Commercial Vehicles, Tata Motors Limited and Arpit Srivastava, Vice-President, Head of Strategic Partnership, LEL Express. Mohd Syahrul Yusuf, Chief Operating Officer of DHCV, presented the mock keys to the new owners.
Tata Super Ace is a one-tonne mini truck built with ‘cutting edge’ technology for intra and inter-city transportation solutions. The trucks handed over to Reza Sadon Enterprise and CFD 74 Enterprise were fabricated with customised box body to cater for the needs of e-commerce delivery services.
Antoine Comar, Country Manager of LEL Express, Lazada Malaysia, believes the acquisition of the Tata Super Ace would bode well for the contractors. “We are delighted by the introduction of Tata Super Ace to support our driver contractors in Malaysia. This addition contributes to our promise of the best end-to-end experience for our customers. We are confident that with the continuous support of DHCV, we would further optimise our delivery operations,” he explained.
LEL Express also geared up for Lazada’s biggest online event of the year - the 11.11 sale on 11th November, 2018. The 2017 edition saw more than 10 million visits to Lazada Malaysia’s mobile application and website within 24 hours, with a whopping 1,400 transactions per minute and merchants selling more than 50 times their daily volume. The numbers are expected to grow this year.
Maitra said the delivery of Tata Super Ace to Independent Contractors of LEL Express was an important milestone for Tata Motors growth in Malaysia and the Asean region.
“Malaysia is one of our key markets in South-east Asia and we are delighted with the overwhelming response to our recently launched Tata Super Ace and the Ultra range of light trucks by DHCV. The Tata Super Ace is a proven performer that could be customised for various applications, delivering sustained value to customers,” he added.
Meanwhile, Rohime said the Super Ace would benefit the companies. “Tata Super Ace is fitted with a 1405cc diesel turbo-charged engine that gives more power with better fuel efficiency as well as tough and durable build, engineered to support heavier loads and ensure long-term saving, making it a perfect last mile transport solution,” he said.
The Tata Super Ace is said to be the preferred choice for last-mile transportation with a footprint spanning 28 countries across South Asia, Africa and Asean.
Tata Motors has sold more than a million units since it was first launched in 2005. The mini-truck is described as a revolutionary product and a result of Tata Motors’ deep understanding of the market and consumer.
Tata Motors customers in Malaysia are currently served by a network of 24 outlets at strategic locations and in major townships nationwide. DHCV aims to expand this reach in tandem with sales and market growth.
