Tiong Nam Heavy Transport and Lifting Sdn Bhd (TNHTL) recently received delivery of a first-of-its-kind heavy haulage truck from Scania Malaysia, presented by Tuan Haji Idros Puteh, the Sales Director for Scania
The truck with an easy-to-remember name – R580 CA6X4 EHZ, is equipped with a heavy haulage torque converter gearbox. This truck will allow TNHTL. a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tiong Nam Logistics Holdings Berhad, to offer complete heavy lifting, transportation and installation solutions for a wide variety of payload.
“TNHTL has successfully lifted, transported and installed many oversized and overweight equipment and structures. To be able to haul such heavy payloads, we needed trucks that can provide us with powerful lift capability, sturdiness and reliability. And with a history of using four generations of Scania trucks for more than 20 years, Scania was obviously the right choice,” said Ir. Alex Tong, General Manager of TNHTL.
“We rely on good forward planning and sound engineering knowledge for delivery of our services which comes over three decades of experience in the industry. The Scania R580 with torque converter gearbox will be the first-of-its-kind Scania heavy hauler in Malaysia,” added Alex.
The Scania R580CA6X4EHZ is sufficiently powered to haul heavy equipment in a very fuel-efficient manner. With the introduction of the heavy-haulage family and the torque converter gearbox, Scania has a competitive product range for transports to over 250 tons. Other benefits include Scania Repair and Maintenance that can help drive best profitability for TNHTL.
To aid its customer, Scania will conduct a complete training programme for TNHTL drivers, complete with refresher courses so that they are always up-to-date with safe driving and emergency procedures.
Scania also provides 24/7 breakdown assistance, performing minor repairs on-site (major ones done at Scania Malaysia, Kuantan).
