Logistics solutions provider, Sin Hock Soon Group of Companies (Sin Hock Soon Group), is modernising its fleet with an order of new Scania trucks. Recently, its subsidiary Benua Haulage Sdn Bhd signed an MOU for an order of 30 units of Scania New Truck Generation (NTG). This is in addition to the existing order of 33 trucks.
This partnership with Scania comes with a comprehensive transport solution which includes the financing of the Scania trucks by Scania Credit, coverage by a Scania Repair & Maintenance Agreement (IPR&M), and fleet performance monitoring by Scania Fleet Management Control Package.
In addition, Sin Hock Soon Group will also secure its position as ‘A Good Company’ by operating these units under the well-known Scania Ecolution way-of-working. This partnership also extends to an agreement to secure Scania genuine parts to service the existing Scania fleet already in use by the Sin Hock Soon Group.
“I would like to congratulate Sin Hock Soon Group for being at the forefront in driving the shift towards a sustainable transport system. Their emphasis on safety, uptime and quality service are befitting a company that is truly modern, a brand that is truly premium. Subscribing to the Scania Total Solutions approach will continue to help bring greater profitability and sustainability to their business and their customers,” said Heba El Tarifi, Managing Director, Scania Southeast Asia, who handed the keys of the first batch of truck deliveries to Shawn Yew Ee Sheng, General Manager & Director, Sin Hock Soon Group. Also present was Tony Yew Poh Aik, Director, Sin Hock Soon Group.
The order of 33 NTGs consists of 21 units of G410A6x2NZ, 4 units of G460A6x2NZ and 8 units of G410A6x2NZ (with CG17 cab). All the NTGs comes with the standard Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and includes Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) and Electronic Braking System (EBS). The implementation of ADAS in these NTGs, together with proper and authorised regular maintenance, will help reduce traffic accidents and casualties, reduce traffic congestion as well as lower the consequential repair of road infrastructure caused by accidents.
Furthermore, all the NTGs that are on IPR&M (8 units) and Inclusive Maintenance (4 units) are assured of Scania’s proactive maintenance procedures to avoid time-consuming delays and costly breakdowns from occurring. This will help to maximise fleet uptime and reduce Sin Hock Soon Group’s operating costs.
The Scania Financial Services agreement covering these units also offers flexible financing solutions by Scania Credit Malaysia, providing the company with predictable cost projection over the entire lifecycle of the trucks.
Sin Hock Soon Group also joined the Scania Ecolution partnership not only to improve its overall fuel economy, but to be in line with the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi) committed by Scania to meet the carbon footprint reduction targets. This is done via the tracking and improvement of the Ecolution drivers’ performances through the Fleet Management System Control 10 that comes with the R&M package. All the Sin Hock Soon Group’s NTGs are set on Economy mode as default. This is to further ensure that Sin Hock Soon Group enjoys optimised fuel economy and CO2 emission reductions. Through this effort, Sin Hock Soon Group will progressively and systematically reduce its carbon footprint.
