Sani Express Group cited performance, reliability, safety and lower fuel consumption as some of the reasons for choosing Scania for its fleet refresh.
Sani Express Sdn Bhd recently received 23 new Scania buses as part of its business practice to change its fleet regularly to provide customers with comfortable, safe and greener travel.
A handover ceremony took place at Terminal Bersepadu Selatan in Bandar Tasik Selatan and saw the first batch of the new buses being presented by Marie Sjödin Enström, Scania Southeast Asia Managing Director, to Wan Mohd Iskandar Dato’ Salleh, Sani Express Group Managing Director. Iskandar cited performance, reliability, safety and lower fuel consumption as some of the reasons for choosing Scania as part of its fleet refresh.
“It is important for us to refresh our buses every five years to provide our customers with the best service and Scania buses have proven themselves to be the right vehicles for our passengers. The new Scania buses would give us the opportunity to continue providing our customers with comfortable and worry free travel,” commented Iskandar.
Sani Express purchased Scania’s K410EB6X2 buses that are equipped with Scania Opticruise function, low noise levels with full air suspension for unparalleled comfort levels, electronic braking system (EBS), Scania Retarder, traction control, better fuel economy with a higher torque at lower revs engine, and fully adjustable steering wheel and hanging pedals for the comfort of the driver. The company also subscribes to the Fleet Management System Control 5 package and Scania Driver Training. These features, along with the subscribed packages, result in a bus that is described as safe, comfortable and fuel efficient for long distance travel with minimised impact to the environment.
In addition, Sani Express signed up as a Scania Ecolution partner as part of the company’s sustainability efforts to reduce its fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The partnership focuses on reducing operating cost, which translates to improved profitability while fulfilling the growing demand for green initiatives.
Iskandar added that the new bus featured a luxury interior. It could carry 48 passengers and the seats were not only wider but also very comfortable.
Sani Express, a major bus express company in Malaysia that was established in 2006, offers bus services to almost 30 destinations across Peninsular Malaysia such as Kuala Terengganu, Kuala Besut, Kota Bharu, Kuantan, Alor Star, Kangar and Kuala Perlis. The company currently owns 60 buses, including 45 Scania buses in its fleet, and is a Scania customer since 2008.
Among the 60 buses, Iskandar said 50 were double-decker buses with the remaining 10 units being high-deck buses.
“A double-decker bus offers more capacity and could carry a large number of passengers in comfort and safety. Thus, there is a growing demand for double-decker buses in the local market,” he said.
According to Marie, Scania has about 1,000 city buses and 1,000 coaches running on the road, with 60 per cent of them being double-decker buses.
“We are very pleased that Sani Express has once again placed its trust in Scania to provide quality vehicles. The recent handover is a reflection of our on-going commitment to provide customers with the best profitability and sustainability for their business,” stated Marie.

Sani Express购买了斯堪尼亚K410EB 6X2 巴士，配备斯堪尼亚Opticruise功能，全空气悬架提供无与伦比的舒适度、电子制动系统（EBS）、斯堪尼亚减速器、牵引控制、更节油的低转速扭矩更高的引擎、可完全调整的方向盘，以及对驾驶员来说更舒适的悬挂踏板。该公司采用第五车队管理系统控制配套和斯堪尼亚驾驶员培训服务。这些特点，再加上订购的配套，带来一辆安全、舒适、节油，对环境冲击最小的长途巴士。
