We have benefitted from the flexible deposit and fixed repayment programme giving us accurate budgeting. The financed vehicles show as an asset in our balance sheet; interest charges are allowable against tax. Through the custom-built financial plans that SCMY have devised for us, we are able to focus on running the business with peace-of-mind due to predictability of costs. This is one of the main reasons why we continue to invest in the Scania trucks” said Teh Chin Hua.

The Scania G410 also has an advanced powertrain designed and engineered to give MGS better fuel efficiency while lowering CO2 emissions. Together with the prime mover’s aerodynamic solutions, this gives improved fuel economy of about 3%. Moreover, the truck is pre-set to Economy Mode by default to save even more fuel. MGS can also use data from the Fleet Management System Control 10 to improve the drivers’ performance to further increase fuel savings.Scania G410A6x2NZ_Prime Mover_MGS Group of Companies
