Melaka Tipper Lorry & Cement Mixer Operator's Association Now 5 years Old 

The Melaka Tipper Lorry & Cement Mixer Operator’s Association celebrated its 5th anniversary recently with an exhibition and a grand dinner. Held on 11th January at the Dewan Melaka International Trade Centre (MITC), the event was well attended by its members, guests and the media.

Companies that participated in the exhibition were HT Group, Mpire Commercial Sdn Bhd, Tan Chong Industrial Equipment Sdn Bhd, MAN Truck & Bus (M) Sdn Bhd, Volvo Malaysia Sdn Bhd, Sendok Group, Isuzu’s dealer Ng Hup Lee Motors Sdn Bhd, TNE Group, Seri Zenith Engineering Sdn Bhd, and many more.

“Tipper lorry owners are only allowed to operate 200 days out of 365 days, but we still have to pay insurance and road tax for 365 days. On rainy days, the sand, stone and soil that we carry would naturally be heavier when they are wet. This leads to the load being overweight and we would be penalised. As such, we would like to make an appeal to the authorities to allow the load to be filled on par with the bucket. Today, we would submit a memorandum on this matter to the representative from the Ministry of Transport. We hope the authorities would look into this matter seriously as it is affecting our business and profit,” said President Ko Bing Liyong during the celebration dinner.

The 2018 -2020 committee members of the Association also took their oaths of the office during the event.

马六甲益斗及石灰屎罗里公会庆5周年

马六甲益斗及石灰屎罗里公会近日以一个展销会和联欢晚宴,庆祝创会5周年。该晚宴在马六甲国际贸易中心(MITC)盛大举行,出席者有会员、嘉宾及媒体。

参与该展销会的公司有HT集团、Mpire Commercial私人有限公司、陈唱工业用具有限公司、曼商用车(马)私人有限公司、富豪马来西亚私人有限公司、信诺集团、五十铃代理商Hup Lee Motors私人有限公司、Seri Engineering私人有限公司等。

“自卸车车主在365天里只可操作200天,但是我们却必须支付365天的保险和路税。我们所运载的沙、石头及泥土往往在下雨天因潮湿而变得比较重,这导致我们超重并被罚。为此,我们在此向政府求助,让我们的装载量与铲斗相当。今天,我们会将有关的备忘录呈给交通部。我们希望政府能够认真看待这个问题,因为它影响了我们的业务和利润。”马六甲益斗及石灰屎公会会长高铭良表示。

该公会2018-2020 年度的理事会成员也在该晚宴中宣誓就职。
