Tailored for the only business that matters. Yours.
Always on time
You’re vital to the supply chain. And when somebody else is waiting to pick up your cargo, you cannot afford to be late – or out of action. We know that your business belongs on the road. Here are a few of the services we offer to help you keep it there:
If an unplanned stop occurs, we are able to diagnose the vehicle and provide the driver with immediate instructions on how to proceed, either guiding them to the nearest workshop or instructing them to stay put and wait for Scania Assistance. With data from the vehicle, we are able to prepare all the necessary spare parts ahead of your arrival, thereby shortening your downtime.
Should a road-side stand-still prevent you from coming to the workshop, then the workshop can come to you. Wherever you are, Scania Assistance is available at any time every single day of the year in emergency situations. Just one call will put you in touch with a service coordinator who knows your Scania and speaks your language. We can then tell you how we can help you and how long it will take. Scania Assistance also uses remote diagnostics to shorten the downtime.
Regardless of brand or age, Scania Fleet Care will look after your whole fleet and make sure each vehicle is performing at peak condition. Your personal fleet manager will use the latest technology and best practice framework to organise every maintenance stop with minimum disruption. Our expert analysts track the data from your business and workshop so you can tackle the root causes of unplanned stops and improve your fleet availability.
Waste not, Want not.
While some see their level of fuel consumption as an unalterable reality, we see it as a challenge. A fuel-efficient approach will save you money. If you’re working on fixed contracts, the way to increase revenues is to reduce costs rather than increase earnings with bigger payloads.
The new generation comes with improved roof and side air deflectors, as well as an improved cab front design that reduces air drag. This is only a taste of the aerodynamic improvements that this generation has to offer, improvements that will enhance your fuel economy.
Our engines are already renowned for their fuel efficiency. Now they’re even better, with improved radiators as well as enhanced injectors and combustion chambers. The new 2.35 rear axle ratio also cuts fuel consumption by reducing engine speed.
The new and improved Opticruise will not only relieve your driver of all gear-changing en route, it will also save fuel. Opticruise is designed to adapt to the environment by taking factors such as road inclination, trailer weight and engine characteristics into account.
AN OFFICE WITH A VIEW
Your drivers are amongst your most valuable assets. They have the power to cut fuel and maintenance costs, increase efficiency and gain the trust of your partners. So if anyone deserves a world-class office, it’s them.
Drivers need all the assistance you can give them. The highest torque-to-power ratio on the market and class-leading handling and stability go a long way towards helping them. As do the state-of-the-art Electro hydraulic power Steered Tag axle (EST) and the improved driver environment and interface.
Scania has improved visibility on the road, with slimmer A pillars, lower side windows, a lower instrument panel and a driver position that has been moved forward by 65 mm. The wiper system now cleans a larger area of the windscreen and the head lamp and spot lamp systems offer increased visibility to other drivers.
Disc brakes with an Electronically-controlled Brake System (EBS) improve both safety and payload. New brake callipers will improve braking distance. The Scania brake pads consist of a unique friction material which ensures maximum service life with consistent braking behaviour. A retarder helps increase the life of the service brakes.
VALUE THAT STRETCHES BEYOND THE INITIAL PRICE TAG
It’s how your business benefits in the long run; what you gain by the end of the journey. You’ll learn how this value applies to your business when you meet with your local Scania dealer. Here’s a hint of what they might show you:
The most common payment method is based on payload. However, if you’re operating with a contract that is defined by measurements, pallets, cages, working conditions, safety or other aspects that can affect your revenue, alternative payment options such as distance, volume and route can play a major role.
Fuel represents a relatively high proportion of operating costs. Ecolution by Scania is an effective way of saving fuel and making money. Fuel savings for existing Ecolution vehicles are up to 10 percent compared to the reference vehicle. The improvements will generate savings, both straight away and in the long term. Below is a typical calculation.
- Average fuel consumption: 30 l / 100 km* Annual distance: 120,000 km
- Cost per litre: 1 €
- Total annual cost: 36,000 €
- 5% reduction: 1,800 € / year
* Actual fuel consumption will vary depending on the train weight of the truck and trailer, the topography, the cruising speed and the skills of the driver. For example, average fuel consumption will be lower in a volume cargo application because of the lower train weight.
While too little servicing may lead to unexpected and costly stops, too much of it result in a loss of productivity. Until now, mixed routes and changing cargos made it difficult to predict the ideal time for servicing. Our Scania Maintenance with flexible plans will help you find the perfect timings for servicing your vehicle. By continuously analysing your vehicle data, we are able to identify and act on your servicing needs before they occur.
- Number of servicing days on a three-year contract: 10
- Number of servicing days when using Scania Maintenance with flexible plans: 8
- Average loss of income per day: 600 € *
- Increase in revenue: 1,200 € / three-year contract
