The first batch of 60 Scania New Truck Generation (NTG) was handed over by Daniel Tan, Sales Director, Scania Southeast Asia to Dato’ Chan Kong Yew, Chief Executive Officer, Infinity Logistics & Transport Sdn. Bhd. (Infinity) in its expansion drive to facilitate its growth. Gracing this event were also Infinity’s Board Members and Management Committee.
“The 60 Scania NTG units are 30 units of P360A 4x2NZ and 30 units of G410A 6x2NZ that will strengthen Infinity’s fleet and enable fulfilment of its objective to run a sustainable operation in line with its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) movement. Having these NTG units financed by Scania Financial Services also provides flexible financing solutions tailored to give Infinity predictable costs and manageable risks – over the entire lifecycle of the NTGs” stated Daniel Tan.
“This goes in line with Scania’s mission to drive the shift towards a sustainable transport system through sustainable partnerships, creating a world of mobility that is better for business, society and the environment.”
The NTG is also designed and engineered to give Scania truck owners better fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions as it is equipped with advanced powertrain and aerodynamic solutions. They give more than 3% fuel economy when coupled with Scania Contracted Services and Data-driven Services from Scania. Furthermore, the Opticruise gearbox gives the Scania NTG a pre-set default Economy mode for even more fuel efficiency.
These Scania NTGs provide a very comfortable adjustable driver seat that is placed closer to the door, with ergonomic dashboard with a 5-inch touchscreen that works very well for the drivers. And most importantly the large windscreen with extended view that gives clear visibility from the different angles for the drivers making it easier for them to operate in a comfortable and safe environment. Other safety features include the Electronic Braking System (EBS) for responsive emergency braking.
Infinity also subscribed to the Scania Maintenance. Scania’s maintenance procedures are proactive to avoid time-consuming and costly problems from occurring to maximise uptime and lower Infinity’s operating costs.
Scania Maintenance Contract also gives predictable costs, so that Infinity can focus its time and energy on its business, worry-free. By individually optimising the different modules in its service plan, Scania ensures via the maintenance contract that downtime is planned and only occurs when absolutely necessary.
“We are in this business to ensure profits to all our shareholders, but we also need to take care of the environment that we live in. Thus, we have embarked on a mission more than a decade ago to be socially responsible with an aim of sustainable development of the society and environment and we have gradually evolved our CSR efforts since then.”
“From being just a contributor, we have now become an initiator striving to sustain our efforts. To us, sustainability means balancing economic, environmental and social needs to find the best solutions which are essential to ensure a more sustainable future,” stated Dato’ Chan.
