LINFOX, Australia’s largest independent logistics company has more than doubled its fleet of Isuzu trucks in Malaysia, enhancing the company’s delivery process while improving its efficiency and safety ratings.

Linfox Transport (M) Sdn Bhd recently took delivery of four units of the powerful medium-duty Isuzu FVR285 and four units of the versatile light-duty Isuzu NQR75, serving GCH Retail (M) Sdn Bhd, the company that operates Giant supermarkets and hypermarkets.

The new trucks join the fleet of five units of FVR240 that the company acquired in 2013. Citing a good experience with Isuzu trucks, the company chose to add the new FVR285 and the latest NQR75 models to its existing fleet.

Linfox Transport’s country manager Saj Iqbal said that the positive experience with Isuzu trucks played a major role in the decision to add more Isuzu trucks to the fleet.

“We refresh our fleet from time to time and as a priority, we look into quality equipment that is safe. Other areas such as state-of-the-art technology and products that will give economies to us and to our customers are important but ultimately, the trucks have to be safe for us and our drivers as well,” he said.

The trucks were officially handed over by Isuzu Malaysia chief executive officer Kenji Matsuoka to the Linfox Asia chief executive officer Gabrielle Costigan.

“If there is one word that sums up Isuzu products, it is dependability. Our customers are always at the forefront of our business and we will continue to ensure our Isuzu trucks get the job done every time,” said Matsuoka.
