SCANIA’S APPROACH TO SAFETY AND SUSTAINABILITY SHOWCASED AT PETRONAS FM DRIVE 2018
Scania recently participated as an exhibitor in the PETRONAS Fleet Management Drive (FM Drive) 2018 competition that promotes safe driving in its fleet operations among its road tanker drivers and hauliers.
The FM Drive is a demonstration of PETRONAS’ commitment to safety in its day-to- day operations which sees its road tanker drivers cover hundreds of thousands of kilometres daily to deliver its fuel products where safety is paramount.
The tanker driver skills competition gauged their performance as they went through a series of challenges that tested their ability to perform manoeuvers within a specified time while promoting a culture of safety and the opportunity to network.
During the competition, Scania had its G-Series truck in display together with its vision for the future of transportation with a semi-autonomous platooning display and the entire range of Scania services such as its Fleet Management System, Scania Driver Training and Scania Driver Coaching.
“We continue to take the lead in providing the best in safety, fuel economy and environmentally-friendly driving through sustainable transport solutions,” said Service Director for Scania Southeast Asia, Thor Brenden.
“We are proud to see that our long-time customer Shaziman Transport continues to use a Scania in this competition and in real operations. This drives us to continue to provide sustainable transport solutions for our customers’ best profitability,” added Thor.
The annual Fleet Management Drive is a competition that PETRONAS organises in order to increase the standards of safety amongst their operators. This year’s competition was organised by and on the grounds of Shaziman Transport Sdn Bhd, which operates a predominantly Scania fleet.
It is the only logistics provider in Malaysia to utilise the Scania B-Double Tankers which deliver better fuel economy of up to 6% with its aerodynamic design for optimum fuel economy and faster delivery.
Shaziman currently has three Scania R 500 V8 B-Doubles and a Scania Streamline G 460 B-Double in its fleet which includes 175 Scania trucks.
