Truck News: Teo Tuan Kwee Sdn Bhd buys 50 Scania G-Series Trucks to add to their fleet...of which a majority are Scania Trucks



This is some impressive news. Again, in a period where people say that economic growth is slow we see some eye opening news. Transport company, Teo Tuan Kwee Sdn Bhd (TTK)  has opted to buy another 50 Scania trucks to join the existing 182 Scania trucks it already owns. 26 units of this latest batch of prime movers were handed over earlier today and it definitely is one of the largest sales for high-end trucks for 2017.


 Operating a predominantly Scania fleet, TTK specialises in services such as palm oil tanker transportation, bonded lorry tankers, cargo transportation and container haulage and this is one of the largest ever orders in Malaysia from the Swedish company. With this latest acquisition, which was facilitated by Scania Credit, makes TTK the first company in the southern region to acquire the Scania G-series trucks. These trucks will be used for its long-haul operations.

TTK’s new trucks also come with the two-year free Scania Maintenance package, two years of free 24/7 Scania Assistance and a ten-year free Fleet Management System (FMS).

Of course, the reason for TTK purchasing these trucks boils down to familiarity of operating the vehicles as well as their relationship with Scania. The overall sales package is also suitable for them as is the reliability and the high uptime of the trucks - an important criteria for long haul trucks.

With almost four decades of experience in the transportation industry, Teo Tuan

Kwee Sdn Bhd (TTK) knows what works best so it says a lot when the company has

opted to buy another 50 Scania trucks to join the existing 182 Scania trucks it already

owns.

Operating a predominantly Scania fleet, TTK specialises in services such as palm oil

tanker transportation, bonded lorry tankers, cargo transportation and container

haulage and this is one of the largest ever orders in Malaysia from the Swedish

company.

“The vision is for TTK to become an outstanding and reputable logistics company in

Malaysia and Singapore in next 5 years,” said TTK director Teo Chee Ben (张志敏) in

Johor Bahru when receiving the latest batch comprising 26 units of the Scania

G410LA6x2MSZ truck.

Teo said the Johor based company selected its trucks based on the criteria of quality

and high uptime, adding that the decision to buy more Scania trucks was also

because of the good maintenance service provided.

With its latest acquisition – facilitated by Scania Credit – TTK is also the first

company in the southern region to acquire the Scania G-series trucks, which it will be

using for its long-haul operations.

The hardworking G-series can be configured to suit a huge range of applications –

from long-haulage and distribution to the toughest off-road jobs – while providing

powerful performance, fuel economy and safety.

“We are proud to be a partner of TTK for its long-haul operations and for the long

haul. It is investing in the total operating economy that Scania offers to create the

best profitability for our customers,” said Managing Director, Scania Southeast Asia,

Marie Sjödin Enström.

“This is achieved through Scania’s sustainable transport solutions,” added Marie.

TTK’s new trucks also come with the two-year free Scania Maintenance package,

two years of free 24/7 Scania Assistance and a ten-year free Fleet Management

System (FMS).

The FMS is activated via a communicator that comes standard with the Scania trucks

enables operators to achieve up to 10% fuel economy, collecting data on board

Scania trucks that provides valuable insight, tracking and diagnostics into the driver

and vehicle behaviour. This can bring significant benefits in increased uptime,

improved safety and reduced operating costs; especially if coupled with Scania

Driver Training and Scania Driver Coaching.

Just minor adjustments to an experienced driver's habits can result in fuel savings of

up to 10% with the information acquired while keeping a constant speed can

significantly improve fuel economy and reduce maintenance costs. Scania's smart

data collection makes this quick and easy.
