With almost four decades of experience in the transportation industry, Teo Tuan Kwee Sdn Bhd (TTK) knows what works best. This says a lot when the company opted to buy another 50 Scania trucks to join the existing 182 vehicles it already owns.
Operating a predominantly Scania fleet, TTK specialises in services such as palm oil tanker transportation, bonded lorry tankers, cargo transportation and container haulage. This is one of the largest orders in Malaysia for the Swedish company.
“The vision is for TTK to become an outstanding and reputable logistics company in Malaysia and Singapore in the next 5 years,” said TTK Director Teo Chee Ben in Johor Bahru when receiving the latest batch comprising 26 Scania G410LA6x2MSZ trucks.
Teo said the Johor-based company selected its trucks based on quality and high uptime, adding that the decision to buy more Scania trucks was also because of the good maintenance service provided.
With its latest acquisition – facilitated by Scania Credit – TTK is also the first company in the southern region to acquire the Scania G-series trucks, which it would use for its long-haul operations.
Scania says the ‘hardworking’ G-series could be configured to suit a huge range of applications – from long haulage and distribution to the toughest off-road jobs – while providing powerful performance, fuel economy and safety.
“We are proud to be a partner of TTK for its long-haul operations and for the long haul. It is investing in the total operating economy that Scania offers to create the best profitability for our customers,” said Managing Director, Scania Southeast Asia, Marie Sjödin Enström.
“This is achieved through Scania’s sustainable transport solutions,” added Marie.
TTK’s new trucks come with the two-year free Scania Maintenance package, two years of free 24/7 Scania Assistance and ten-year free Fleet Management System (FMS).
The FMS is activated via a communicator that comes standard with the Scania trucks and enables operators to achieve up to 10-per cent fuel economy by collecting data on board the trucks that provides valuable insight, tracking and diagnostics into the driver and vehicle behaviour. Scania says this could bring significant benefits in increased uptime, improved safety and reduced operating costs; especially if coupled with Scania Driver Training and Scania Driver Coaching.
Scania adds that minor adjustments to an experienced driver’s habits could result in fuel savings of up to 10 per cent with the information acquired while keeping a constant speed could significantly improve fuel economy and reduce maintenance costs. Its smart data collection makes this quick and easy.
