Sea Hawk Global Lines Sdn Bhd, part of the integrated logistics giant SHAL Group of India, has added 12 units of the New MAN Truck Generation with Euro V engines to its growing fleet of 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) CKD assembly plant at 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.
The latest order from Sea Hawk was the second after the 20-unit order of the previous generation MAN TGS that was delivered in November last year.
The decision to invest in the New MAN Truck Generation with Euro V engines was in line with Sea Hawk’s aspiration to be a market leader that is 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,” said Sea Hawk director S Kamalesh.
MAN Malaysia Managing Director Andrew O’Brooks thanked Sea Hawk, a major player in warehousing with sizeable facilities in 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 engines has been overwhelming. We are glad to see key players of the transport industry like Sea Hawk doing their part to lower emissions. As a manufacturer, we will continue to engage with the relevant authorities to drive change that will benefit the transport industry and encourage more companies to join this very important journey towards a more sustainable future,” he said.
