Naidu Trans Logistics Sdn Bhd (Naidu Trans) achieved better results in its Scania Ecolution partnership in reducing their carbon footprint after signing the Maintenance contract with Scania for their Scania prime movers.
A key player in the logistics and transportation industry in the southern state of Johor, Naidu Trans, the Skudai-based company services the entire state of Johor as well as deliveries to Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and up north to Ipoh and Penang, transporting an average of 700 to 800 freight containers per month.
Naidu Trans is run by Managing Director, Boss Naidu, and assisted by son Gajendran and provide the most premium services to its customers while maintaining their care for the environment by investing in the right products and contracted services.
“Our trucks are on the road almost 24/7, so it’s important for us to have the trucks serviced and well-maintained to withstand all the harsh elements that they go through when on-the road with the maximum uptime possible. Operationally, I vouch for the Scania trucks for its unbeatable performance. The Scania Ecolution partnership agreement that we signed over a year ago is showing positive results and it synchs very well with our Maintenance contracts,” commented Boss Naidu.
Scania knows every single vehicle inside out – the reason why Naidu subscribe to Scania Maintenance. Scania’s maintenance procedures are proactive to avoid time-consuming and costly problems from occurring to maximise uptime and lower Naidu Trans’ operating costs.
Scania Maintenance contract also gives predictable costs, so Naidu Trans 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.
Furthermore, Naidu Trans is very happy with the after-sales service as Scania is always close to offer all the necessary assistance when needed. In addition, with Scania Assistance, Naidu Trans has access to the Scania network of workshops, stocked with available spare parts for quick repairs, 24-hours a day.
Reducing carbon footprint
To provide premium service, Naidu Trans empowers its drivers to perform better while on the job as better performing drivers can improve the company’s performance as well as help to reduce Naidu Trans overall carbon footprint.
With the Scania Fleet Management System (FMS) Control 10, Naidu Trans can further fine-tune its drivers to reach their best potential. An incentive programme was also created to award drivers with excellent performance in terms of lowering their idling time, harsh braking and speeding while increasing coasting resulting in the ultimate reduction of fuel consumption.
Equivalent to 667 trees
Naidu Trans commitment towards sustainability is evident by the results it managed to achieve within months of being a part of the Scania Ecolution partnership and the Maintenance contract. The company reduced its CO2 emissions by a further 41,465kg for the first quarter of 2021 which is equivalent to planting approximately 667 trees that has been flourishing for the past one year.
“I truly like the fact that we are considered ’A Good Company’ and as we are one of the first Scania Ecolution partners in Johor we want to set a good example of how we can truly reduce the impact to the environment.”
Signing the Maintenance contract was another positive catalyst towards our steady growth. We recorded good results within the first few months of signing the Scania Ecolution agreement in 2019 and are showing better results in 2021 because at the end of the day, lowering our fuel consumption and CO2 benefits the environment and of course our future generation,” summarized Boss Naidu.
