AONE Group Trusts In Scania Reliability
Scania Malaysia recently handed over new Scania prime movers to first time customer AONE Logistics Sdn. Bhd. (AONE), which recently acquired additional units to facilitate the expansion of its trucking and haulage requirements.
Held at the Scania Malaysia headquarters in Bukit Jelutong, Shah Alam, the keys were presented by Scania Southeast Asia Managing Director Marie Sjödin Enström to AONE Managing Director, S. Palani.
S. Palani cited performance, reliability, fuel economy and safety of the vehicles, along with excellent after sales service as some of the reasons why Scania was the ideal choice for its business operations and total operating economy.
“As a logistics company, it is crucial that we provide good end-to-end service with minimal downtime to our customers and I believe Scania can help to ensure that we do so with the attractive total solutions package it offers, as well as its systematic way of managing fleets,” said S. Palani.
AONE purchased a total of 15 Scania G-Series trucks – nine G360LA4x2MNA, five G410LA6x2MSZ and one G460LA6x2MSZ – all of which offer powerful performance and increased fuel savings that can help attain the best profitability during long-haul operations, making them suitable for the company’s services.
The acquisition was made on hire purchase terms facilitated by Scania’s financial services provider – Scania Credit Malaysia – that is focused on giving its customers tailored and sustainable financial packages that best suit their business needs.
The trucks will also be insured by Scania Credit Malaysia, which offers Scania customers peace of mind with benefits that minimise financial loss and handling of damages while optimising uptime including an accelerated claims process, special waiver on loading rate of up to five years and excess rate for vehicles sent to Scania workshops.
AONE’s purchase comes with the standard package of two-year free Scania Maintenance; two-year free 24/7 Scania Assistance and a ten-year free Control 10 Fleet Management System (FMS) that digitally enables them to monitor the performance of itsdrivers as frequent as every ten minutes via real time updates.
To ensure smooth productive deliveries, AONE also signed a seven-year Repair and Maintenance (R&M) Contract, as well as Scania Fleet Care, covering scheduled maintenance of the vehicles and breakdown assistance.
“For Scania, today’s handover is a reflection of the Company’s on-going commitment to the quality, safety and performance of our vehicles and we are indeed very happy that AONE Logistics has placed their trust in Scania for the best profitability and sustainability of their business,” said Marie.
