Newly-added fleet strengthens FGC’s transportation business
These new additions at the Malaysian company will boost its logistics arm, which also offers inland transport, multimodal transport, courier services and warehousing.
Haris Fadzilah Hassan, FGV group chief executive officer, said FGV Transport was instrumental to the group’s supply chain network, being the biggest palm products transporter in the nation with a fleet of nearly 500 trucks and 14 nationwide hubs.
He said: “We are focused and determined to expand our logistic business in line with the industry’s demand for a reliable and efficient logistics provider.
“Our service is not just transporting from point A to point B, but we offer a team of experienced professionals in logistics and transportation management with state of the art vehicle tracking system to monitor the movement of the trucks and delivered products.”
With the additional curtain sider trailers, FGV Transport is tapping into the petrochemical segment particularly for specialty chemicals including resin, high-density polyethylene (HDPE), low-density polyethylene (LDPE) and urea.
Responding to the Government’s B20 mandate, FGV has also added five new trucks for the transportation of palm methyl esther (PME), making a total of nine units of PME trucks with about 350 tonne capacity.
FGV Transport has obtained the biofuel license transportation under the Ministry of Plantation Industries and Commodities (MPIC), a compulsory license for all transport companies involved in PME/biodiesel transportation. With these new trucks, FGV foresees an expansion of its services to external parties as well.
