Tri-Mode had one of the largest Mercedes-Benz truck fleet in the country. The company received 5 new units of the Actros 2644 recently.
The Mercedes-Benz Actros prime-mover continues to be a top choice among hauliers and five new units of the Actros 2644 saw official delivery in a simple handover ceremony to Tri-Mode System (M) Bhd in Port Klang, Selangor recently. The handover was done by Hap Seng Trucks Distribution Sdn Bhd (HSTD), which distributes light-, medium- and heavy-duty trucks from Fuso and heavy-duty trucks from Mercedes-Benz.
HSTD Chief Executive Roland Schneider said the company took great pride in every truck delivered. “It is not just about the product; it is also the people who make the difference. After-sales is the key. We are committed to ensure the highest quality product and services. We really want to live up to the brand promise ‘Trucks you can trust’.”
Around 60 guests, including suppliers and business partners as well as the staff and management of both companies, attended the event.
Headquartered in Port Klang, the Tri-Mode Group is a pioneer in providing integrated intermodal logistics solutions and services for importers and exporters. The Tri-Mode Group operates in Port Klang, Penang Port, Pasir Gudang Port, Port of Tanjung Pelepas, Kuala Lumpur International Airport and Penang International Airport. Since 1992, the group has facilitated international trade across borders, handling documents and cargo, warehousing, transhipment and customs brokerage as well as haulage and cargo transport for air, land and sea. It has established an extensive sea and air freight network with agents located in 53 countries across Asia, Europe, North America, South America, Africa and Australasia, enabling it to provide comprehensive shipping coverage to customers worldwide.
Group Managing Director Datuk Hew Han Seng noted that Tri-Mode had one of the largest Mercedes-Benz truck fleet in the country. "We first took delivery of 20 units of the Actros 2640 with semi-automatic transmission in 2009 - some 10 years ago. Today, we have slightly above 100 units of Mercedes-Benz trucks. This shows our trust and confidence in the Actros," he said.
He also noted the Tri-Mode Group in December 2015 had the honour of taking delivery of the 25,000th Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicle produced in Malaysia. "That was an Actros 2644 with a fully automatic transmission."
Hew pointed out that the Actros had proven to be very fuel efficient. "In our business, vehicle reliability and cost savings are extremely important. Also, very importantly, we are working with a partner who listens to us and takes fast action to solve any issues we have with the trucks. We leave the troubleshooting and vehicle maintenance to professionals so that we could focus on our core business."
The group's senior drivers also love driving the Actros and say it is reliable and easy to handle. "Two of our drivers have become trainers for new employees. And they also won a Truck Drivers' Skills Competition organised by Mercedes-Benz Malaysia. We look forward to buying more Mercedes-Benz trucks," said Hew.
