Transportation specialist, Chemtrax Sdn Bhd, took delivery recently of its first 3 Scania New Truck Generation trucks. The company was handed the keys to 2 units of the Scania P410 A6X2NA and a unit of the P360 A4X2NA.
Chemtrax was established in 1998 as part of Sabaka Group Sdn Bhd. Chemtrax specialises in the transportation of hazardous materials such as chemicals and gas throughout Peninsular Malaysia, focusing mainly on the Klang Valley. It also transports specific materials used in nitrile gloves manufacturing in Malaysia and Singapore.
“This truck model is ideal for urban and regional operations and well-suited for our daily multiple loads into Singapore, and other demanding conditions,” said Hairul Anuar, Senior Manager Business Development of Chemtrax, who is instrumental to the success of Chemtrax’s business.
The Scania New Truck Generation is tailored to withstand challenging surroundings, securing uptime and boosting productivity with its tougher exterior, tougher interior, and more power.
“The features of the New Truck Generation have improved greatly from the older generation making the truck more user-friendly with very comfortable adjustable seat that is close to the door, ergonomic dashboard and most importantly the large windscreen with extended view giving clear visibility from the different angles for our drivers making it easier for them to operate in a comfortable and safe environment,” commented Hairul.
It is also designed and engineered to give Scania truck owners better fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions as it is equipped with advanced powertrain and aerodynamic solutions that give up to 3% improvement in fuel economy.
The Scania truck have proven to be the most fuel efficient among all the other brands in Chemtrax’s fleet and conforms to the safety standards demanded by its customers. Even though the pandemic is still going on, Chemtrax’s niche market in transporting necessary materials to glove manufacturers has enabled it to secure its business sustainability via long-term contracts with its present customers.
Chemtrax currently operates branch offices / depots and yards in Pasir Gudang and Simpang Renggam, Johor and Kuantan, Pahang. There are also plans to open another office in Banting, Selangor in the first quarter of 2022.
