After handing over vehicles to its customers in Perak and Penang, Scania Malaysia turns to Pahang to hand vehicles to two of its key Pahang customers – Hin Tatt Recycling Sdn Bhd and PIBG Sekolah Sains Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah (SHAH Pekan).
The official handover was done by Scania Southeast Asia Sales Director, Daniel Tan at the Scania Kuantan service facility where the Scania Open Day was held to allow for Scania employees, their families as well as Scania customers get to know each other.
Hin Tatt Recycling’s Logistics Manager Encik Rahmat bin Kassim and SHAH Pekan’s Yang Dipertua Persatuan Ibu Bapa & Guru Tuan Haji Mohamad Alias bin Chik both cited performance, reliability, fuel economy and safety as some of the reasons as to why Scania was the ideal choice for their operations and total operating economy. Complementing those reasons, they added, was the excellent Scania after-sales service and maintenance that also contributes to their uptime.
Hin Tatt Recylcing purchased five units of the G410LA6x2MSZ trucks which offer powerful performance and increased fuel savings that can help attain the best profitability during long-haul operations, making them suitable for transportation of the company’s wide inventory of steel products.
Meanwhile, SHAH Pekan chose to acquire a Scania K310IB4x2 bus because safety and comfort is a priority for its students. The bus features a powerful engine with higher torque at lower revs and is equipped with the Scania Opticruise gear-change that promises better comfort and fuel economy while reducing clutch and synchromesh wear.
The vehicles that were handed over also included the standard package of the two-year free Scania Maintenance; two-year free 24/7 Scania Assistance and a ten-year free Fleet Management System (FMS) package that will help both customers monitor vehicle and driver performance, particularly fuel consumption that will assist them in making informed decisions.
“We are proud to be a partner for both Hin Tatt Recycling and SHAH Pekan for its long-haul operations and for the long haul, and are indeed very happy that they have placed their trust in Scania to take their businesses toward the best profitability,” said Daniel.
The event also saw the presentation of the Scania FMS Competition Awards to Tasik Bintang Transport & Trading Sdn Bhd for achieving the best fuel savings in the bus and truck categories; representing Tasik Bintang was its director Mr. Tan Say Lim.
The Scania FMS is a total solutions approach created for its customers to achieve the best profitability and efficiency in their businesses. It gathers data from the driver’s performance and vehicle, which is then used together with methods such as driver training and coaching to increase the productivity of the fleet, achieve fuel economy and eventually reduce the cost of operations.
