KEMB Receives Well-Reserved Recognition from Scania
The winners drove coaches that are subscribed to Scania Ecolution agreement and achieved the best fuel economy and CO2 emission reduction. Razali Mat is the champion; the first runner-up title goes to Mohd Ruhaimie Mohd Noor and second runner-up is Mohd Zaki Said. They received their well-deserved recognition and prizes at the KEMB’s headquarters in Kota Bharu.
“Getting the drivers to improve their driving behaviour was key to getting them on the right path towards the win. KEMB tracked their movements and ways of driving via the Scania Fleet Management System Control 10 and used the data to clearly show them the areas that could be improved upon. And with the Scania training and coaching services, they were advised to reduce idling, speeding and harsh braking and increase coasting when they are at the wheel. Realising that they are consistently saving fuel and reducing CO2 emission on their run motivated them to go for the win by changing their ways of driving,” comments Che Ibrahim Che Ismail, Executive Chairman of KEMB.
After more than 20 years of sustainable partnership, the strong bond that was created between KEMB and Scania led to KEMB becoming the first to sign the Scania Ecolution agreement in Asia when it was introduced in 2018. The move enabled the company to reduce CO2 emission while lowering fuel consumption for its fleet. This was another milestone as KEMB had already signed up for the Repair & Maintenance (R&M) and Fleet management System Control 10 (FMS) for its fleet.
As an Ecolution partner with Scania, the good company and driving is seen as part of the journey towards achieving the reduction of CO2 emission in line with Scania’s Science Based Target initiative (SBTi) drawn at the Paris Agreement in 2015.
‘A Good Driver’ (AGD) is a truck or coach and bus driver from ’A Good Company’. The drivers automatically qualify as long as they are part of the Scania Ecolution partnership and drive a specific vehicle under the programme. The vehicles they drive are marked with a Scania Ecolution sticker plus a t-shirt with AGD Qualifier Badge.
To win, a good driver’s driving must result in the best percentage of litre per kilometre (km/l) improvement throughout the duration. This is tracked using Scania Fleet Management System. The 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners would then be crowned with a certificate and host of ‘attractive’ Scania premium prizes. The best person who drives consistently in a safe, fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly way would get the Champion Jacket with AGD Champion Badge. The companies that the winners work for would receive service vouchers worth RM 5,000/3,000/1,000 respectively.
“Congratulations to KEMB as ‘A Good Company’ for being the best winner in this competition. Its unwavering commitment in the Scania Ecolution partnership would not only produce top-class drivers that save fuel but also reduce CO2 emission for the environment and future generation,” stated Thor Brenden, Service Sales and Operations Director, Scania Southeast Asia.
As part of KEMB’s sustainability development, it adopted Scania’s business philosophy of sustainability and recorded successes year after year. To attest to KEMB’s commitment to the Scania Ecolution agreement, it has significantly lowered fuel consumption of its fleet and reduced CO2 emission by 2,358,338kg. This is equivalent to the planting of approximately 35,375 trees from day one till the current day of the Scania Ecolution partnership.
The total KEMB fleet of 69 vehicles carries two brands of coaches – The E-Mutiara Premier and Musafir Economy – that cater to different sets of targeted passengers. A further 18 units would be delivered accordingly.
More than 478 Scania vehicles from 42 customers in Malaysia are part of Scania Ecolution. These ‘good companies and good drivers’ are also seen as part of the global effort to achieve the Science Based Targets together with Scania. Scania says it is committed towards minimising emissions from its products and own operations. These include cutting CO2 emission by 20 per cent from its land transport per transported tonne by 2025 (using 2015 as a baseline) and 50 per cent from its own operation.
获胜者驾驶的是签署了斯堪尼亚 Ecolution 协议的长巴，节能又减排。拉扎利 （Razali Mat） 是冠军得主， 莫哈末鲁海米（Mohd Ruhaimie Mohd Noor）屈居亚军，莫哈末查基（Mohd Zaki Said ）则获得亚军。他们在哥打峇鲁的KEMB总部获得了当之无愧的认可和奖励。
KEMB执行总裁仄依布拉欣（Che Ibrahim Che Ismail）表示：“通往胜利的关键是让驾驶员改善他们的驾驶行为。KEMB采用斯堪尼亚车队管理系统监控10（Control 10）跟踪驾驶员的行程和驾驶方式，并使用这些数据清楚地告诉他们可以改进的地方。斯堪尼亚培训和辅导服务则建议驾驶员减少怠速、超速和急刹车，并提高滑行。意识到他们在行驶过程中始终如一地节省燃料和减少二氧化碳排放，将激励他们改变驾驶方式来争取胜利。”
作为斯堪尼亚的 Ecolution 合作伙伴，好公司和驾驶被视为实现减少碳排放旅程的一部分，而这符合斯堪尼亚在 2015 年巴黎协定中设定的科学碳减排目标 (SBTi)。
“一个好司机（A Good Driver，简称AGD) 是来自一家好公司（A Good Company）的卡车或长途巴士和巴士。只要该公司是斯堪尼亚 Ecolution的合作伙伴，那么驾驶着参与该计划下特定车辆的该公司司机将自动获得参赛资格。他们驾驶的车辆将贴上 斯堪尼亚的 Ecolution 贴纸和带有AGD合格者徽章的T恤。”
斯堪尼亚东南亚服务销售和运营总监布伦登（Thor Brenden） 说：“祝贺‘好公司’ KEMB成为本次比赛的大赢家。它在斯堪尼亚 Ecolution 合作伙伴关系中坚定不移的承诺不仅孕育了节省燃料的顶级驾驶员，还会为环境和子孙后代减碳排。”
KEMB 车队共有 69 辆车，包含两个品牌的长巴 ，即E-Mutiara Premier 和 Musafir Economy ，以迎合不同的目标乘客群。斯堪尼亚将交付另外的18辆。
来自马来西亚 42 家客户的超过 478 辆斯堪尼亚车辆都签署了斯堪尼亚 Ecolution 。这些“好公司和好司机”被视为是全球性努力的一部分，与斯堪尼亚一起实现科学目标。斯堪尼亚表示，它致力于最大限度地减少其产品和自身运营的排放。其中包括到2025 年（以 2015 年为基准）将其陆路运输每运输吨数的碳排放量减少 20%，并将其自身运营的碳排放量减少 50%。
