DELIVERY OF SCANIA TRUCKS SIGNALS STRONGER BUSINESS CONFIDENCE
Ipoh, 17 March 2016 – Scania Malaysia today delivered two units of Scania P360 LA 4x2
MNA trucks to Circular Agency Sdn Bhd (CA), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Malay-
Sino Chemical Industries Sdn Bhd, which is part of the Batu Kawan Berhad group.
The keys to the Scania trucks were handed over by Pre-Sales Director of Scania
Southeast Asia, Tom Kuiphuis to the Managing Director of Batu Kawan Berhad, Dato’ Lee
Hau Hian. Also present at the handover were CA’s General Manager Tan Boon Chye,
CA’s Service Support and Maintenance Manager Karunakaran a/l Ganapathy and Internal
Auditor Manager of Batu Kawan Berhad, David Ng Weng Kiang.
“Circular Agency has always emphasised the importance of safety, health and
environmental care when the company is transporting chemicals produced by the Group.
That is why we ensure we have good quality trucks in our operations,” Dato’ Lee stated.
It was after careful consideration that CA chose the Scania trucks mainly due to their
performance, fuel economy and safety. Apart from meeting the high standards that CA
practices, the Scania trucks are also environmentally-friendly and will also, in the long-
term, contribute to the total operating economy, giving the best returns on the investment.
The two Scania trucks comes with 2 years free Maintenance, 2 years free Scania
Assistance and 10 years free Scania Fleet Management.
Scania Maintenance is part of a range of maintenance services provided by Scania
Contracted Services. The trucks will be maintained by the Scania Malaysia service centre
in Ipoh. Scania Assistance allows Scania to track and follow-up on the status of any
customer’s case from start to completion; keeping the customer informed throughout the
entire process. This allows the customer to plan and reorganise their fleet movements
better in the event of a particular vehicle needing assistance. Scania Fleet Management
is a set of services that connects the vehicles with customers’ office through a
communicator device. Scania customers will get vehicle data, fleet position and reviews
of driving performance. By just focusing on these details Scania customers can make
informed decisions and take the necessary actions to increase the productivity of their
fleet. Vehicle and driver performance can save up to 10% in fuel economy if Scania Fleet
Management is used together with Scania Driver Support, Driver Training and Coaching
The trucks are also equipped with Scania Opticruise transmission technology that gives
drivers a comfortable handling of the truck for the best safety and fuel economy while
reducing clutch and synchromesh wear.

chain. Scania’s wide range of quality products and services are constantly improving and
