Sea Hawk Global Lines Invests in MAN Trucks
SHAL Group Chairman P.M. Mohamed Ariff, Managing Director M.F. Mohamed Lafeer and Sea Hawk Director S. Kamalesh received the trucks from MAN Malaysia Managing Director Andrew O’Brooks after a visit to the MAN Truck & Bus Sdn Bhd(MAN Malaysia) assembly plant in Serendah.
The senior management team from SHAL Group and Sea Hawk were given a first-hand look at how their trucks were assembled. They also had the opportunity to test drive the New MAN Truck Generation, including the flagship MAN TGX model.
According to Kamalesh, the decision to invest in the New MAN Truck Generation with Euro V engine was in line with Sea Hawk’s aspiration to be a market leader that was fully committed to meeting its Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) commitments.
“Another factor that influenced our purchasing decision was that we have had zero complaints so far with our current batch of MAN trucks. That is perhaps the best feedback possible from our drivers,” he added.
O’Brooks thanked Sea Hawk, a major player in warehousing with sizeable facilities in the Port Klang Free Zone, Westport and Northport, for joining the sustainability journey with the New MAN Truck Generation.
“Market response to our New MAN Truck Generation with Euro V specification engine has been overwhelming. We are glad to see key players in the transport industry like Sea Hawk doing their part to lower emissions. As a manufacturer, we would continue to engage with the relevant authorities to drive change that would benefit the transport industry and encourage more companies to join this very important journey towards a more sustainable future,” he said.
