With 45 years of experience in the logistics and transport services industry, FGV Holdings Berhad (FGV) is set to grow its logistic sector’s revenue with newly added road tankers, curtain sider trailers and dumper trucks. These added assets, received in July 2020 will boost its logistics arm under FGV Transport Sdn Bhd, which also offers inland transport, multimodal transport, courier services and warehousing.
FGV Group Chief Executive Officer, Dato’ Haris Fadzilah Hassan said FGV Transport is instrumental to the Group’s supply chain network, being the biggest palm products transporter in the nation with a fleet of nearly 500 trucks (tanker, cargo, courier) and 14 nationwide hubs, inclusive of five main depots and nine sub-depots.
“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,” said Haris Fadzilah.
Curtain sider trailers
As part of the expansion, this month FGV Transport bought 15 units of 45ft curtain sider trailers to cater to the fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) industry. The trailers are strategically located in its depot in Shah Alam and Port Klang, Selangor, Pasir Gudang, Johor, and Kuantan, Pahang. They could transport up to 22 pallets with a capacity of 20MT or 40MT depending on the type of products. FGV Transport is planning to own 15 units more by end of the year.
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.
FGV Transport has also acquired 15 units of dumper trucks this month, to fulfil the requirement of logistics business in port areas. The dumper trucks could transport between 18MT and 20MT of goods such as palm kernel expeller, fertiliser, palm kernel shell, raw sugar and corn from ports to warehouses and vice-versa.
Responding to the Government’s B20 mandate, FGV has also added five new trucks for the transportation of palm methyl esther (PME – for the use in biodiesel), making a total of nine units of PME trucks with approximately 350MT capacity that will be ready on the road by end of July 2020.
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.
