The fourth edition of the Malaysia Commercial Vehicle Expo (MCVE) 2019 will showcase future transport solutions for the commercial vehicles industry. The expo is being held at the Malaysia International Exhibition and Convention Centre (MIECC), Mines Resort City, Seri Kembangan from 20 – 22 June 2019 (10 am – 7 pm), and it’s free admission for trade visitors (by filling in a simple form).
MCVE 2019 was officiated today by Dato’ Kamarudin Jaffar, Deputy Minister of Transport, who was driven to the venue by Marie Sjödin Enström, Managing Director of Scania Southeast Asia, in the latest Scania P-series truck. “The trucking and transportation industries are on the cusp of transformative change. We need to exploit our existing infrastructure better to be able to meet the demands of transportation in a more sustainable and efficient way. I am delighted that the MCVE can serve as the platform for all the players in the industry to share and offer solutions on providing safe, efficient and sustainable transportation for Malaysia in the coming future,” commented Dato’ Kamarudin in his opening speech.
The expo is Southeast Asia’s largest commercial vehicles exhibition, with major industry players such as Daihatsu, Hino, MAN, Scania, UD Trucks, Volvo displaying their latest offerings and solutions. Also participating in the expo are related industry partners and suppliers. The expo brings together the megatrends of future transport solutions that can contribute to more efficient, safer and cleaner transportation. Topics like electro-mobility, technology trends and ‘Uberisation’ of trucking services are among the topics presented. The Scania Driver Competition MCVE Edition is also back, as well as a range of comprehensive programs to appeal to a broad audience.
“Technology is disrupting and transforming the transportation industry in a rapid pace. The future of transportation will involve vehicles and transport solutions that are connected, data driven, shared, on demand, electric and highly automated. By bringing the spotlight on groundbreaking and new transport solutions in this expo, I hope it will prepare us for the future of transportation in Malaysia,” said Stefan Pertz, Editor of Asian Trucker and Asian Buses magazine, and organiser of MCVE.
“Since our first event in 2013, the MCVE has grown into a leading, multi-faceted exhibition and business platform for the commercial vehicle industry, bringing together a record number of exhibitors and trade visitors in each instalment,” added Pertz.
Highlights of MCVE include the ‘Hour of Power’ where designated exhibitors use a given hour to vie for visitors’ attention with engaging activities, the Asian Trucker Drivers Club luncheon sponsored by Giti Tire, and a seminar by Volvo Trucks – ‘The Road to Electromobility for the Malaysian Transportation Industry’.
The expo also features a designated Rest & Relax area supported by Guardian South East Asia and Nittsu Transport, complete with food trucks to provide free food and coffee at the Asian Trucker booth, as well as a designated networking area sponsored by Hengst.
