It was an opportunity for their customers to learn more about the features of each model and how they have been developed with the thought of customer's productivity, driver comfort, safety and efficiency in mind.

There were also all-day long free vehicle health checks for customers of UD Trucks (as long as they bring them in of course).  This free service was also given out as a way to introduce UD Trucks' new and better uptime with the new longer service interval package that is now available for all UD Trucks’ customers in Malaysia. The new service interval package introduces the Centralized Lubricating System and it comprises new oil drains interval for both UD Quester and UD Croner.

This is in lne with the marque's 'going the extra mile' philosophy.

 “We made our first order for UD Quester in 2017 and our drivers have been impressed with its drivability, robust quality and fuel efficiency. The UD telematics system and engine performance of UD Quester also made it an easy decision for us to purchase another eight units, which we will be using for our business expansion and meeting rising customer demands.” said Encik Aznan Abd Aziz, Executive Director of VXL Alliance Sdn Bhd.

“Being in the logistics industry, timeliness is extremely important and to achieve this, we need vehicles that can take the load to deliver productivity with superior uptime.
