Scania Malaysia recently handed over the keys to 12 new Scania trucks to one of its key customers – Circular Agency Sdn Bhd – a wholly owned subsidiary of Malay-Sino Chemical Industries Sdn Bhd, which in turn is a 98-per cent subsidiary of Batu Kawan Berhad that is listed on the Main Market of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad.
Held at the Circular Agency’s depot in Kemaman, the keys were presented by Scania Southeast Asia Pre Sales Director Tom Kuiphuis to the Managing Director of Malay-Sino Group, Tan Chee Heng.
Tan cited how performance, reliability, fuel economy and safety of the Scania vehicles as well as the ‘excellent’ after-sales service helped the company achieve an improved total operating economy. Hence, Scania became the ideal choice for the company’s business expansion.
Circular Agency purchased 11 Scania G410LA6x2MNA trucks and 1 Scania G360LA4x2MNA truck, all offering powerful performance and increased fuel savings to help attain the best profitability for its long-haul operations of chemicals nationwide.
The trucks are equipped with the Scania Opticruise gearchange feature that promises better comfort and fuel economy while reducing clutch and synchromesh wear as well as a fully-adjustable steering wheel to help drivers stay focused and alert on their journey.
Tan also commented on the FMS suite of services, which digitally connected the Circular Agency office with its vehicles and monitored the performance of its drivers. The system was credited with enhancing the supervision of the drivers’ compliance with safety regulations set by the company.
In addition, Circular Agency signed a 7-year Repair and Maintenance Contract (R&M) for all vehicles, which could be fully utilised at the nearest Scania service centre, making it possible for the company to keep its trucks running with minimal downtime.
For Scania, this truck handover is seen as a further reflection of its commitment to the quality, safety and performance of its vehicles. Kuiphuis said: “We are proud to be partner with Circular Agency for its long-haul operations and are indeed very happy that this company has once again placed its trust in Scania for the best profitability and sustainability of its business.”
