Since inception in 1986, PSA said its average daily transport of crude palm oil and related products has grown multifold to 4,000 – 5,000 tonnes per day. These include crude palm oil, RBD palm oil, RBD palm olein, RBD palm sterine, palm fatty acid as well as water, sludge, soap and sugar.

PSA says it has a proven reputation for safe and reliable service, and is well-equipped to provide same-day delivery from refineries and mills to manufacturing plants, insulation storage points, ports and free-trade zones.

Its fleet of 108 trucks is fully fitted with satellite tracking device – Omnizone Vehicle Tracking System – to manage and track its entire fleet from its site office to ensure timely and safe delivery of goods transported, it added.

    Boosting its position in palm oil field

    RITAM Singh Agency Sdn Bhd (PSA) has bought 30 units of Mercedes-Benz 3344S 6×4 Actros prime movers, expanding its fleet to 108 trucks and strengthening its position as a leading transporter of crude palm oil and related products in peninsular Malaysia.

    “The purchase underscores our commitment to deliver on our brand vision ‘Always Moving Forward’, and continuously raise the bar for the industry with state-of-the-art trucks in delivering service excellence, higher reliability and safety standards, befitting Malaysia’s status as the world’s palm oil marketplace,” said PSA founder and chairman Pritam Singh.

    Since its inception in 1986, PSA’s average daily transport of crude palm oil and related products has grown multifold up to 5,000 tonnes per day. These include crude palm oil, RBD (refined, bleached and deodorised) palm oil, RBD palm olein, RBD palm stearine, palm fatty acid as well as water, sludge, soap and sugar.

    The new Mercedes-Benz Actros 3344S prime mover, revolutionised through the introduction of ultra-modern technology to achieve a quantum leap in handling and safety, sets a new benchmark for long-distance transport.

    “Cycle & Carriage Bintang has a total of 11 Autohauses spanning the west coast of peninsular Malaysia, making us the largest Mercedes-Benz dealer in Malaysia. Of the 11 locations, four are catered for commercial vehicles after-sales service. The four are located in Butterworth, Ipoh, Batu Caves and Johor Baru.

    “Cycle & Carriage Bintang technical staff are fully trained by Mercedes-Benz Malaysia and are on hand in all our service centres,” said Cycle & Carriage Bintang Bhd operations director R. Devaraju.

    “Apart from our workshop facilities, we have also invested in two units of Commercial Vehicles (CV) Mobile Service units that are fully equipped with special tools and equipment to assist our CV customers.

    “Each vehicle is equipped to service and repair Mercedes-Benz trucks on the spot.

    “Our breakdown team and service team have been trained by Mercedes-Benz and are on-call 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” he added.

    “We have been in this business for 30 years and our strategy has been to focus on steady growth in the palm oil industry.

    “We have come to a pivotal point to take PSA to the next level, to firmly establish PSA as an industry leader specialising in the transport delivery of crude palm oil and related products,” said PSA director Gulshanjit Kaur.

  2. Congratulations to Sardar Pritam Singh Ji for his success in the transport industry. It is hoped that he will assist other Sikhs-Indians-Malaysians with his wisdom and resources so that others who may need his expertise can also succeed. Not many had heard about PSA before this article and now that PSA is known it is hoped that the Company will bring benefits to society and needy Sikhs in particular.

    There are many rich people in the world but only those who assist others are remembered and are admired even long after they have gone. May WAHE GURU JI bring him greater success in the future.

    WAHE GURU JI KA KHALSA WAHE GURU JI KI FATEH.
