The official handover of 10 units of Volvo FM440 6x2 prime movers was held at Taipanco’s office. Attended by the senior management team members of both companies, the handover ceremony started with a welcoming speech from Volvo Trucks Managing Director, Mats Nilsson, followed by presentation of a truck scale model and mock key to commemorate the occasion.
Taipanco Sdn Bhd, together with its wholly-owned subsidiary, Shallas Sdn Bhd specialize in container haulage, warehousing and freight forwarding services. The company mainly services the two ports in Malaysia, namely The Westport and Northport which both are located in Klang. The company has been a great supporter to Volvo Malaysia, with more than 130 trucks purchased since 2005. The additional units of Volvo FM440 delivered are part of Taipanco’s continuous fleet expansion plan.
Datuk Nazari Hj Akbar, Executive Director of Taipanco Sdn Bhd said, “We believe that having a dependable truck fleet is one of the key factors that contribute to our business growth. In the past decade, Volvo Trucks has been partnering with us along our growth journey with their impeccable reputation by continuing to provide us with durable products and reliable after-market services.”
The VVIPs who attended the ceremony were also treated to a very special arrangement by having a luncheon in the Volvo exhibition trailer in which the guests also viewed some videos of Volvo Trucks on our products and innovative technology. It was a unique experience planned for the Taipanco management team.
