Truck News: ISUZU MALAYSIA Delivers 115 Units of Isuzu ELF Trucks to City-Link Express


This is quite a deal for Isuzu Malaysia. The Japanese vehicle manufacturer recently delivered 115 units of various Isuzu trucks to City-Link Express (M) Sdn Bhd as part of their 2017 fleet agreement purchase. This saw 105 units of the Isuzu ELF 4-wheeler (NLR77UEE) model and 10 units of the Isuzu ELF 6-wheeler (NQR75UKN) model. This new trucks now join the City-Link fleet of which now has 322 units of Isuzu trucks.


City-Link has been able to expand their business over the past few years or so as the logistics industry seems to be on the upswing. According to City-Link, Isuzu trucks have been preferred because they believe that the trucks are efficient, cost effective and reliable to ensure that goods and packages reach their destination in a timely manner. Being a company that does door-to-door domestic delivery here, the criteria stated above are important. 

Isuzu Malaysia's service packages must also suit them to the tee as it is the effective cost-per-mile benefit as well as vehicle uptime that is key to the transport industry. 

The Isuzu ELF models are equipped with their latest commonrail engine which provides improved fuel consumption. The ELF NLR77 aka NLR PRO has a 3.0liter 4cylinder commonrail diesel which makes 81ps/23-Nm powering the rear wheels via a 5 speed manual transmission. The ELF NQR75 has a 5.2liter 4 cylinder commonrail diesel makes 150ps/402Nm, rear wheel drive via a 6 speed manual gearbox. Both are Euro2 in fuel standards so that they can run the more readily available diesel fuel in Malaysia.

The trucks' specifications are also in accordance to the updated regulations recently stipulated by UNECE (United Nations Economic Commission for Europe). Well within current standards and regulations.

Aside from the handing over of the trucks,  Isuzu Malaysia also provided City-Link's drivers/staff with an Eco-Driving Seminar and basic service maintenance training. The session provided attendees with vital knowledge and understanding on achieving economic and safety driving. This is important as at this moment, the performance or efficiency of a truck depends on the driver/operator. So this value added training which comes bundled as part of the fleet purchase is a very good thing.
