The new Sandakan workshop is expected to increase the convenience for customers to enjoy all of the benefits Scania has to offer.
Scania recently launched a new workshop in Sandakan, Sabah to service customers in the Sandakan, Lahad Datu and Tawau areas. The company says this facility adds to an already wide service network in Malaysia that provides the ‘best services’ for safety, fuel economy, uptime and environmentally friendly solutions for truck, bus and coach operations. Its presence in Sandakan is expected to increase the convenience for customers to enjoy all of the benefits Scania has to offer.
Equipped with two work bays and manned by three technicians, Scania invested above RM500,000 to build this workshop. The skilled technicians could work on up to four vehicles per day and the number of technicians could be increased when needed. Like all its employees, Scania says they would continuously receive formal training and undergo on-the-job training to enhance their skills, knowledge, professionalism and teamwork to ensure that they deliver a more effective service.
Scania adds that its customers in Sandakan could continue to enjoy profitability in their operations through its sustainable transport solutions. Maintenance Services, Repair Services, Parts Services, Driver Services (consisting of Driver Training and Coaching), Fleet Management System (FMS), Financial Services, 24/7 Scania Assistance roadside services (by calling 1800-08-8500) are available to customers.
“We have been in Sabah for a long time and continue to see potential growth in the state, especially in the east coast. Our strategic presence in Sandakan complements the Kota Kinabalu facility to support our customers in achieving profitability and sustainability,” said Scania Southeast Asia Managing Director Marie Sjödin Enström.
“For customers to get the most out of their fleet, it is vital that Scania supports them with the right solutions. Convenient access to workshops and genuine parts is crucial for our customers anywhere. Our parts add value to their business because they are engineered for ultimate performance, endurance, fuel economy and safety as well as lower environmental impact,” added Marie.
The workshop is expected to make it easier for the customers in Sabah to adopt the Scania Ecolution programme, a partnership-based solution for operators and businesses to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. It says operators would see their total operating economy improve while building a sustainability image that its customers could be proud of.
As part of the opening, Scania would run a Recon Truck Promotion until 31st March, 2019. Owners of reconditioned Scania trucks could get a free ‘health check’ and free Scania retrofit of FMS or free activation of FMS. Scania also offers S service packages at a 30-per cent discount together with software checking and downgrading. Maintenance contracts are on offer at a special price of RM0.098/km with a minimum term of 10,000km per month during the Recon Truck Promotion period. Checking for the correct filters for B10 diesel compatibility is also part of this ‘great promotion’, which is seen as a step towards an environmentally friendly state.
“Scania Malaysia in Sandakan, together with our entire network of service centres, would facilitate the shift towards a sustainable transport system for transport companies in this region. More needs to be done to lower emissions globally to reduce global warming and address climate change. We would continue to provide solutions to help our customers achieve the best profitability without sacrificing sustainability,” concluded Marie.
