Perdana Group, operator of Perdana Express, Darul Iman Express and Lienadia Express has announced that it has recently signed Maintenance, Repair & Maintenance Contracts and an Ecolution partnership with Scania Malaysia for 78 of its buses.
In an official signing ceremony held at the Terminal Bersepadu Selatan, Bandar Tasik Selatan, Managing Director of Perdana Express, Laili Ismail also added 31 new Scania buses to Perdana Group’s fleet.

Perdana Group has also signed up as a Scania Ecolution partner as part of its sustainability efforts to reduce their CO2 emissions. The Group will have Ecolution for its entire fleet starting with 22 buses as a pilot scheme and expanding from there. Scania Ecolution partnership focuses on reducing fuel consumption and operating costs, which translates to improved profitability while fulfilling the growing demand for environmentally-friendly initiatives.
The first batch of the new buses were handed over by the Managing Director of Scania Southeast Asia, Marie Sjödin Enström to Laili on that day. These buses will be used to strengthen the company’s connection between the East Coast to the Central Region of Peninsular Malaysia as well as expansion to the Northern Region in particular Tanjung Malim and Parit Buntar.

Perdana Express invested in Scania’s K410EB6X2 buses that are equipped with Scania Opticruise, full air suspension, electronic braking system (EBS), Scania Retarder, traction control, a higher torque at lower revs engine, and fully adjustable steering wheel and hanging pedals. These features ultimately result in a bus that is safe, comfortable and fuel-efficient for both passengers and drivers during long distance travel while minimising impact to the environment.
“Today’s signing and handover ceremony is a testament of Scania’s on-going drive towards sustainability with our far-reaching 2050 commitment in reducing the carbon footprint to net zero.
