The addition of 28 new trucks from the handover would see Konsortium PD boasts a total of 43 Volvo trucks in its fleet.
Volvo Trucks Malaysia handed over new Volvo trucks to Konsortium PD Sdn Bhd in an official ceremony held at its headquarters in Lukut, Port Dickson. The handover saw 17 units delivered to Konsortium PD, with an additional 11 set for delivery in 2019. The senior leadership team of Konsortium PD and Volvo Trucks attended the ceremony. Of the 17 trucks handed over, two were Volvo FH440, 7 were Volvo FM370 and eight were Volvo FM440. The remaining 11 would be 5 Volvo FM370 and 6 Volvo FM440.
Konsortium PD is a road transportation logistics company established in 2001 as a merging of several companies and their fleets to form one consortium. The business primarily operates in Port Dickson, Westport, Puchong/KVDT, Kapar, Kempas/Johore and HICOM/Shah Alam with Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn Bhd as its main customer. Konsortium PD is seen as one of the best haulage companies in the region based on its safety and operational excellence with acknowledgement coming from many industry players.
Richard Tee Chu Wong, Managing Director of Konsortium PD, said: “The addition of 28 new Volvo trucks is a testament to our commitment to provide even better services to our customers and help them achieve their business goals efficiently. Having also signed the Volvo Service Agreement, we now have the ease of mind when it comes to the maintenance of our Volvo trucks. I am confident that our choice of including these additional trucks to our fleet would allow us to go further in the oil and gas transportation industry.”
Konsortium PD currently owns and operates 15 Volvo trucks. The addition of 28 new trucks from the handover would see the company boast a total of 43 Volvo trucks in its fleet to service clients in several locations across Malaysia.
The decision to purchase the trucks was based on the healthy relationship built between the two companies over the years as well as the acknowledgement of the quality of aftermarket services offered by Volvo Trucks. Konsortium PD also hopes to learn more about handling and maintaining its Volvo trucks through this handover.
“We at Volvo Trucks strive to provide the best offerings, both in our trucks and services, to all our customers,” said Mitch Peden, Managing Director of Volvo Trucks Malaysia. “Especially with Konsortium PD’s clientele in the oil and gas industry, safety and quality are the two most important aspects to look at when looking for a transportation partner. It is an honour to be the top choice with the addition of 28 brand new Volvo Trucks to its fleet. We would continue to offer our best-in-class services to ensure the highest performance and return on investment for our business partners.”
With a good record in performance, Konsortium PD has further grown its business by diversifying to industrial gases, other oleo-chemical products as well as retail petrol stations. In the future, the company hopes to expand into the warehousing business.
