According to HMSM, the new Hino 300 Series, which was launched in October 2020, is not only receiving high demand from customers in Peninsula Malaysia, but also from those in East Malaysia.

It is worth mentioning here that the new model comes installed with a smart telematics system called HINO Connect, which helps customers to manage their fleet and the daily operations efficiently.

Besides HINO Connect, users can also access truck information through the myHINO mobile application which is linked to the aforementioned telematics system.

KTC Shipping is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kim Teck Cheong Consolidated Berhad (KTC), the sole operator of Gardenia Bakeries (East Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, and specialized in supplying and distributing Consumer Package Goods (CPG) in East Malaysia.

KTC also mentioned that it has set its sights on penetrating the Indonesian market with the Gardenia brand. Due to business expansion, the company has decided to get its own fleet to support the increasing transport and shipping into its subsidiary company, KTC Shipping.
