TIONG NAM STRENGTHENS PORTFOLIO WITH FIRST-OF-ITS-KIND HEAVY HAULAGE SCANIA R580 TRUCK IN MALAYSIA
Gebeng, 10 June, 2016 – Tiong Nam Heavy Transport and Lifting Sdn Bhd (TNHTL) has received delivery of a R580CA6X4EHZ truck with heavy haulage torque converter gearbox from Scania Malaysia that will add a heavy boost to its logistic services.
A wholly-owned subsidiary of Tiong Nam Logistics Holdings Berhad, a public-listed company in the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange and a leading total logistics provider with operations across the Asia Pacific region, TNHTL offers complete heavy lifting, transportation and installation solutions for a wide variety of payload.
“TNHTL has successfully lifted, transported and installed many oversized and overweight equipment and structures. To be able to haul such heavy payloads, we needed trucks that can provide us with powerful lift capability, sturdiness and reliability. And with a history of using four generations of Scania trucks for more than 20 years, Scania was obviously the right choice,” said Ir. Alex Tong, General Manager of TNHTL.
The key was handed-over by Tuan Haji Idros Puteh, the Sales Director for Scania Southeast Asia.
The Scania R580CA6X4EHZ comes with the sufficient power to haul heavy equipment, which it does in a very fuel-efficient manner. With the introduction of the heavy-haulage family and the torque converter gearbox, Scania has a competitive product range for transports to over 250 tons. Other benefits include Scania Repair and Maintenance that can help drive best profitability for TNHTL.
“We rely on good forward planning and sound engineering knowledge for delivery of our services which comes over three decades of experience in the industry. The Scania R580 with torque converter gearbox will be the first-of-its-kind Scania heavy hauler in Malaysia,” added Alex.
The drivers are the most important asset of a fleet operator and thus a complete training programme by Scania will also be provided for the TNHTL drivers, with refresher courses so that they will always be up-to-mark when it comes to safe driving and responses to emergency procedures.
In the event of any breakdown, the 24/7 Scania assistance will be on hand to do immediate minor repairs while major ones can be done at the Scania Malaysia Kuantan Branch. Scania continues to drive customers’ best profitability through sustainable transport solutions, thus giving better returns on customers’ investment in the long-run.
