SCANIA PUTS HAULIERS TO THE TEST

 

Shah Alam, 2 September 2015 – Scania recently put the Malaysian haulage companies to the test when it placed them behind the wheel of a prime mover that was attached to a 40 foot trailer and asked them go through a series of maneuvers.

As the Platinum Sponsor of the Association of Malaysian Hauliers (AMH) D’Gala Nite 2015, Scania revved up the excitement of the annual dinner this year with a special edition of its Scania Driver Competition, which allowed the guests to experience a small part of what their drivers have to do on a daily basis.

The Scania Driver Competition - AMH D’Gala Nite 2015 Edition also served as a preview for the main Scania Driver Competitions 2014/2015 Malaysia-Singapore (SDC) that will be held later this year.

This special edition was won by Mr. Vissnu s/o Rengasamy, Managing Director of L&R Haulage Sdn. Bhd – Champion, Mr. Said Harun, Port Klang Branch Manager of Kontena Nasional Bhd – 1st runner-up and the only female participant Ms. K. Maria, Assistant Manager of LTS Logistics Sdn Bhd – 2nd runner-up. Winning the competition gave the winners a sense of appreciation of the skills of their drivers’, the effort and control that is required in keeping the trucks in good running condition.

“This competition was a bit of fun for the operators but it is also allows them to experience for themselves what their drivers need in terms of optimal technology in the vehicle to do their job well,” said Sales Director of Scania Southeast Asia, Idros Puteh.

Also on display at the dinner were two Scania prime movers – the P410LA6X2MSZ with Opticruise and the Streamline G460LA6X2MNA – as well as the Scania Fleet Management system.

“These are some of the many products and services that make up for what we call Scania Total Solutions, to allow hauliers to optimise their fleets for the best profitability,” added Idros.

The Guests of Honour in attendance were YBhg Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Dr Syed Hamid Albar, Chairman of the Public Land Transport Commission (SPAD) and YBhg Datuk Che Azizuddin Che Ismail, President of AMH.
