Scania Malaysia handed over more vehicles to its three of its key clients in the northern region recently in conjunction with the Scania Open Day, which was a get-together for Scania staff, their families, as well as Scania customers. Sin Soon Hock Transport Sdn Bhd received 17 trucks; Nurkasih Holiday & Tours Sdn Bhd, 6 buses; and LLZ Haulage Sdn Bhd, 2 trucks.
Scania Southeast Asia Managing Director, Marie Sjödin Enström was on hand to present the keys to Sin Hock Soon Director, Mr. Tony Yew; Nurkasih Holiday & Tours, En. Hafisol; and LLZ Haulage, En. Tajnoor, at the Scania Butterworth service centre.
Sin Hock Soon Transport and LLZ Haulage purchased 17 units and 2 units respectively of the G410LA6x2MSZ truck. These G-series trucks promise powerful performance and increased fuel savings and are suitable to attain the best profitability during long-haul operations.
Meanwhile, the six buses acquired by Nurkasih Holiday & Tours i.e. five K360IB4x2 and one K250IB4x2, feature a powerful engine with higher torque at lower revs and are equipped with the Scania Opticruise gear-change that promises better comfort while reducing clutch and synchromesh wear.
Facilitated by Scania Credit, these new buses and trucks come with the standard package of the two-year free Scania Maintenance; two-year free 24/7 Scania Assistance and a ten-year free Scania Fleet Management System (FMS).
“We are proud to be a partner for Sin Hock Soon Transport and LLZ Haulage for their long-haul operations. We are also proud of our partnership with Nurkasih Holiday & Tours for their tour operations. We are indeed very happy that these established companies have placed their trust in Scania for the sustainability of their businesses,” said Managing Director of Scania Southeast Asia, Marie Sjödin Enström.
The three customers cited performance, reliability, fuel economy and safety of the Scania vehicles which contribute to the profitability and sustainability of their businesses, as well as Scania’s excellent after sales service, as reasons for equipping their fleet with Scania vehicles.
The event also saw Scania presenting an award to Express Seni Budaya (M) Sdn Bhd for achieving the best fuel savings for a competition for the bus category based on the Scania Fleet Management System (FMS). The FMS is a total solutions approach from Scania for its customers to achieve the best profitability and efficiency in their businesses by gathering data from the driver’s performance and vehicle. That data is then used together with methods such as driver training and coaching to increase the productivity of the fleet, reduce fuel consumption and eventually reduce the cost of operations.
“Scania’s continuing success is based on our employees and our core values. We focus on the individual and our future success depends on the achievements from our employees,” said Marie. “We are currently driving the shift towards a sustainable transport system. The Scania Open Days allow us to showcase what our solutions can do and gain feedback from customers and even families of staff. All of these for continuous improvement purposes. Only then can we make that shift”, she added.
