Last update: 29/01/2018

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 29 (Bernama) -- Mercedes-Benz Malaysia Commercial Vehicles (MBM CV) delivered a strong performance, recording a total of 2,469 vehicles sold in 2017, despite the 7.9 per cent dip in Total Industry Volume (TIV) last year.

The commercial vehicles comprised FUSO light-duty and heavy-duty trucks, as well as Mercedes-Benz trucks and vans.

"Despite the dip in TIV, MBM CV continues to be a strong supporter of the transport and haulage industry, attributing its robust performance in 2017 to its strategy of placing customers at the centre of its initiatives," it said in a statement.

In 2017, Mercedes-Benz Actros proved to be a top choice among hauliers recording an impressive total of 268 units sold, maintaining a double-digit growth of 24.1 per cent, while FUSO trucks recorded 2,170 units sold.

"As a result of securing fleet contracts from new small and medium operators during the year, MBM CV was able to achieve a market penetration 13.06 per cent for Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicles in 2017, a new record for the company," said Mercedes-Benz Malaysia.

Notable fleet deals included the delivery of 74 FUSO vehicles to KDEB Waste Management Sdn Bhd and 133 units of Mercedes-Benz Actros to Swift Haulage Sdn Bhd - setting the highest number of deliveries in 2017.

In addition to its sales success, MBM CV implemented several after-sales solutions last year to provide Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicles and FUSO customers greater flexibility.

For the full year of 2017, MBM CV recorded a 7.47 per cent increase in throughput compared to 2016, with an impressive total of 26,820 vehicles serviced, comprising 4,820 Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicles and 22,000 FUSO trucks.

To date, MBM CV's nationwide dealer network comprises 62 service centres catering to both Mercedes-Benz and FUSO commercial vehicles, ideally positioning it for the upturn of customer demand expected due to growth in demand for haulage services.

"We enjoyed a productive year in 2017, securing and setting a record of fleet deals for both our FUSO trucks and Mercedes-Benz prime movers.

"Our steadfast focus on flexible after-sales packages and solutions, continuous improvement of our technicians' skills and knowledge, and service outlet enhancements has proven successful," said Vice-President Albert Yee.

  You should only use the hazard lights to warn
traffic that you've had to stop in some sort of emergency. Turning on the hazard lights and still driving on is dangerous. If more and more
motorists use their hazard lights when they
are still moving, those who use them when they actually stall would be in danger of being
knocked into by traffic behind them
