PRAI: Transportation service provider, Lee Ting San Group of Companies (LTS Group), has expanded its fleet by 70 units of MAN TGS 19.360, 4x2 prime mover for providing long-haul transportation.
The Prai-based company’s new fleet now makes up one third of its existing fleet of prime movers and currently services blue chip clients such as DHL, Schlumberger, Dell as well as KLM
The new fleet will be will be employed at its haulage hub and its distribution centres located in Pulau Pinang, Prai, Port Klang, KLIA, Bukit Kayu Hitam as well as Singapore and Thailand
Also located close by Prai is MAN’s service centre, which helps make it easier and swifter when it comes to maintenance schedules and response times - enabling the company to maximise the truck’s on-road lifespan.
The 4x2 tractor, which weighs around 360 kg less than a standard semi-trailer tractor, offers considerable advantage when it comes to payload while being extremely lightweight.
It can travel along asphalt roads or unsurfaced gravel tracks and its high-torque Common Rail engine provide the necessary dynamics with low fuel consumption.
The twelve-speed MAN TipMatic semi-automatic gearbox of the vehicle takes the pressure off the driver as it can be operated effortlessly, either fully automatically or manually using a touch-action lever on the steering wheel.
With the single sleeper cab in the MAN TGS, the driver can also enjoy a high level of comfort, a generous amount of space and a clear view, with a full standing height.
“A key objective of MAN is to supply fuel-efficient trucks that significantly lower total cost of ownership and it is encouraging to know that the LTS Group has found the MAN TGS more than capable of meeting its stringent requirement in this area,” said MAN Truck and Bus (M) Sdn Bhd managing director Hartmut Mueller.
