Scania Biofuel and Electric Buses Begin Testing in Johor

Scania IMBRT

Scania has started pilot-testing renewable fuels and electrification solutions in Malaysia, with the Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA) for the Iskandar Malaysia Bus Rapid Transit (IMBRT).

Three buses

Scania IMBRT

Scania will be test-running two buses over the 20-kilometre loop route from 11 to 15 April – a 10-metre Bio-diesel for schedule passengers, and a 12-metre Electric development project for IRDA’s technical team only. The 15-metre High Capacity bus is also available for test ride by IRDA.

The launch was officiated by YAB Datuk Ir Haji Hasni Haji Muhammad, The Chief Minister of Johor cum co-Chairman of IRDA and YBhg Prof Datuk Ismail Ibrahim, the Chief Executive Officer of IRDA. Representing Scania Malaysia was Heba Eltarifi, Managing Director of Scania Southeast Asia.

Bio-diesel

The 10-metre Bio-diesel Bus from Scania runs on B100. FAME-prepared Scania buses run on all blends of diesel and biodiesel ranging from B10, B20 and even up to B100. It is environmentally-friendly – lowering global emissions by reducing CO2 to limit the effects of climate change.

Riding this bus more also helps to increase the rakyat’s wealth by spurring the rapid development of the Malaysia’s palm oil industry. FAME is the abbreviation for Fatty Acid Methyl Esters which is the technical term for the bio-diesel that is produced in Malaysia.

Electric

The 12-metre Electric Bus development project by Scania and Partners eliminates tailpipe emission and lowers noise pollution with an electric drive train.

The operation more efficient, the ride more comfortable and safe, creating a positive passenger experience. With brighter and more spacious interior due to a simpler yet advanced setup, it is easier to maintain and to be kept clean.

Scania IMBRT

The 15-metre High Capacity Bus from Scania increases revenue while lowering costs for operators. It comes with additional seats for passengers, air-suspension, steered rear axle, built-in safety systems – Electronic Braking System EBS, Advanced Emergency Braking AEB, Manual and Automatic Retarder System and Speed Limiter – all of these for a safer and more comfortable ride for passengers and drive for drivers in an urban environment.

Scania Ecolution

With the Scania Ecolution partnership option, it can lower fuel consumption and reduce CO2 emissions that limits the effects of climate change.

“Scania’s purpose is to take the lead in driving the shift towards a sustainable transport system. Our participation in today’s event is a testament of Scania’s on-going drive towards achieving our far-reaching 2050 commitment in reducing the carbon footprint to net zero,” stated Heba.

SR Gemilang Signs Scania Ecolution Agreement

Scania SR Gemilang

SR Gemilang became part of Scania Malaysia’s milestone when they became the first truck operator in the Northern region to sign the Scania Ecolution partnership agreement in a simple ceremony.

The signing was sealed between Muhammad Jaafar, Director of SR Gemilang Transport (M) Sdn Bhd and Heba Eltarifi, Managing Director of Scania Southeast Asia. Scania Ecolution is a partnership between Scania and customers with the aim to reduce carbon footprint via total solutions.

Fuel consumption, vehicle and driver behaviour will be monitored daily and reported on a monthly basis and will result in reducing fuel consumption and the emission of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere while lowering the costs of operation.

Science Based Target initiative

Scania became the first major manufacturer of heavy commercial vehicles to have our far-reaching climate targets officially approved by the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi) back in April 2020.

Scania is committed to achieving the Paris agreement goals of limiting global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. SR Gemilang’s participation in the Scania Ecolution partnership is part of this initiative.

80 Scanias and counting

With a total count of 80 trucks, SR Gemilang added four units of Scania New Truck Generation (NTG) that efficiently delivered the best uptime among all the brands in SR Gemilang’s fleet. Five more units will be delivered to SR Gemilang’s fleet in 2021.

sr gemilang scania

The order for these additional units was signed and sealed by M. Aziz, Managing Director of SR Gemilang who was also in attendance. The earlier Scania trucks that SR Gemilang acquired in 2015 delivered very good returns as the fuel savings were the best amongst the entire fleet. However, the NTGs that are equipped with advanced powertrain and aerodynamic solutions delivered further 3% fuel savings.

“Our customers are very happy that we decided to purchase the NTGs to carry their goods as they, themselves, know that the NTGs are well known as the best and most reliable truck in the market. Our customers are assured of on time delivery of their goods,” said Jaafar.

Muhammad Jaafar, took control as Director with M. Aziz taking the lead as Managing Director and both started managing haulages of mostly electronic items, food products and garments, to name a few. The business started in 2007 with six trucks, three of which were Scania trucks but the fleet expanded very quickly as their service quality and marketing efforts paid-off many folds.

Ipoh to KLIA

sr gemilang scania ecolution

Operating from their headquarters in Ipoh, the Port Klang and the KLIA, SR Gemilang was successful in creating associations with other logistic providers for joint-venture projects, sub-contracting either way. The increase in demand for reliable and trustworthy transportation was also captured by SR Gemilang, especially deliveries to and from the Ipoh free-trade zones.

“We are very pleased to be part of Scania’s global initiative. We work hard for our family, and it’s up to us to do whatever we can to care for the environment and set a positive example for our children to follow. I truly hope that they too will do their part in caring for the environment,” concluded Jaafar.

Scania XT Tipper Excels in Singapore

chuan lim scania xt

One of Scania’s top customers in Singapore, Chuan Lim Construction, just purchased 18 Scania P410 tippers last year. Fast forward a couple of months and the company’s 21st tipper has already began its duties.

As we can see in the picture above, the latest member of the fleet enters the construction site the driver prepares to navigate through uneven dirt roads and mud pools. As he steers, he is mindful that the rainfall the evening before has softened the earth further.

40 tippers and counting

This truck is one of Chuan Lim Construction’s 18 Scania P 410 tippers acquired over the past year.  They join the 40 Scania tipper trucks from earlier generations in the group’s combined fleet of about 200 trucks.

“We wanted a tipper truck that would be fuel-efficient and economical to operate,” explains Alan Lim Kui Teng, Managing Director of Chuan Lim Construction. “But we also look at how strong and durable the components are to work under the stress of very rugged conditions.”

Nevertheless, the Scania tipper truck proves its mettle by reversing confidently to its final position. The driver, wanting to do a final check, is able to climb safely onto a side inspection step to view the load. Once ready to continue, he re-enters the cab to tip the truck’s gravel load smoothly while continuing onto his next task.

Lower operating cost

“The new Scania XTs have given us an extra-tough truck to handle the demands of the job. It also gives us better fuel economy, compared to other European brands of trucks, which contributes to lowering our operating cost and environmental impact.”

While reducing operating cost is a priority, Chuan Lim Construction is also concerned about increasing vehicle uptime. It is often more important to consider the quality of the services support when making a purchase decision.

After sales support

“We are not just buying trucks; we look at the whole service package of how the supplier and customer complement each other,” says Lim. “We also look at the pricing and availability of parts.”

To maximise operating economy on the new trucks, Chuan Lim Construction subscribes to Scania’s repair and maintenance package.

Scania further supports the company with fleet management solutions and the company has also prepared for its drivers to undertake driver training and coaching to improve their skills.

 “We like the new features available in the Scania trucks,” says Lim. “We do not want our drivers to suffer from fatigue, and our drivers have given us the feedback that they feel more comfortable and happier with the new cab designs and interiors.”

Diesel to Electrification: Here’s How Scania’s Handling the Transition

Scania Hybrid

In the future, every transport can be electric, and for a more sustainable world, most must. However, replacing a diesel truck with an electrified one is more than simply exchanging an old vehicle for a new.

So, in an effort to ensure a smooth transition from diesel to electrification among truck operators who are mostly “old-school” and so used to owning diesel buses and trucks, Scania, which now has an electric range of both trucks and buses, is offering solution packages as a complete turnkey operation.

Transitioning to an electrified fleet entails fundamentally changing time-tested business practices and fleet management systems as well as logistics planning and infrastructure. 

Scania Hybrid

All this is complex, yet inevitable, as transport companies embark upon electrification. Still, local incentives play a major part in the speed of the transition, and it will be necessary for politicians to make using an electrified vehicle economically viable for haulage companies.

Every new electric Scania vehicle is packaged as a solution that leverages everything from the vehicles and services via comprehensive driver training to partnerships with energy suppliers and long term guidance.

Firstly, routes and transports determine charging and infrastructure needs.

“This is perhaps most important and we will assist the customer in establishing efficient charging facilities,” said Anders Lampinen, Scania’s director of new technologies

Scania Hybrid

Also, understand when, where and how to charge batteries is key, preferably with clean, renewable energy. The cost saver in terms of energy is to use individually-adapted charging stations, and to use overnight charging at the home depot as much as possible. 

Electric vehicle technology on this scale is novel, and besides charging, individual implementation and long term maintenance practices are far from standardised between vehicle manufacturers.

Scania’s network for repair and maintenance is subsequently needed to ensure maximum uptime and long-term viability. Each customer is addressed individually to assess needs and provide tools that solve all issues that may arise and support the customer. A full repair and maintenance contract guarantees complete coverage, ability to plan and cost control.

“Regardless if electrification concerns a huge fleet of buses or a small truck operation, it’s vital that this transition is viable for our customers’ business. The electric vehicles must fit into their daily operations. We have risen to that challenge and, with the electric vehicle at the core, added comprehensive solutions to makes it all work,” said Anders.

Electrified operations come with many questions. That is why Scania provides answers and concrete solutions, to help implement tailor-made solutions for every possible aspect of electrified operations.

Scania Celebrates 50 Years in Malaysia

Scania 50 Years

While many of us are still skeptical about how things would be in 2021, Scania has a solid reason to look forward to the New Year as the brand will be celebrating its 50th year in Malaysia.

It all started in 1971 with the first Scania LB110 truck’s arrival at Port Klang, delivered to Kontena Nasional.

Scania 50 years

Scania has been leading in driving the shift towards a more sustainable transport system since then and has continued to support the logistics, construction and public service sectors, commuting people and goods every day throughout the country.

Since that handover in 1971, Scania Malaysia went on to celebrate not one or two, but numerous firsts and milestones in Malaysia over the past 5 decades.

For instance, the first locally assembled Scania truck, and the first low-floor city bus were delivered in 1994. Then in 2006, Scania delivered the first PGR-series. Six years later, the first B-Double in Malaysia arrived in 2012.

Just one year later, Scania Credit Malaysia provided the first financial services in 2013. And then, Scania Assistance started the first 24/7 roadside assistance in 2014 and Fleet Management Systems were first introduced in the same year.

Scania then got recognised for all its efforts by winning the Sustainable Urban Transport Award in 2017 – A record year of vehicle sales, signing the first Scania Ecolution customer, the first school to be spearheaded by “Master Sustainability by Scania” – all in the same year of 2018.

Scania then delivered the first International Truck of the Year, the New Truck Generation in 2019 and the first Scania XT truck in Sarawak in 2020.

With about 300 employees, Scania Malaysia today offers capabilities in repair and maintenance, roadside assistance, genuine parts, data-driven services like fleet management systems, driver training & coaching and also financial services from Scania Credit.

All from twelve dedicated Scania Malaysia Sales and Services Centres all over the country to meet the country’s public and cargo transport needs.

On a separate note, Marie Sjodin Enstrom, the Managing Director of Scania South Asia, will also be bidding farewell to the company as she will be passing the baton to the next Managing Director of Scania Southeast Asia in 2021.

 “I would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers of yesterday, today and the future for their continued trust in Scania.

Scania Malaysia and Partners Reduce 681,000 kg of CO2

Scania Ecolution Malaysia

For the amount of pollution we contribute towards the atmosphere, the least we can do is reduce the usage of plastic and plant some trees. Realising this, Scania, and a few of its customers in Malaysia recently achieved something remarkable through the Scania Ecolution initiative.

A total reduction of 681,000 kg of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) has been achieved through the Scania Ecolution initiative so far. This is equivalent to an approximate planting of 10,000 trees flourishing in the past year.

Scania Ecolution Customer Malaysia

In case you’re not familiar, Scania Ecolution is a tailor-made partnership between Scania and customers that focuses on reducing fuel consumption resulting in reduced CO2 emissions. The partnership also focuses on reducing operating cost translating to improved profitability while fulfilling the growing demand for environmentally-friendly initiatives.

The prerequisite to Scania Ecolution is signing up to the Scania Fleet Management System (FMS) Control 10 Package. There are over 200 trucks and coaches from over 30 customers with specifications that have been optimized to suit their respective operations.

Scania Ecolution Malaysia

Konsortium E-Mutiara Berhad was the first coach Ecolution customer in Asia back in 2018, and subscribed to Scania total solutions. The optimised vehicles are complemented with Fleet Management System to obtain vehicle and driver data for analysis.

Improvements to the drivers’ performance based on these data together with training & coaching services reduce idling, harsh braking or speeding for better fuel efficiency while lowering their carbon footprint.

Scania Ecolution Malaysia

“Sustainability and profitability can go hand-in-hand. Scania Ecolution and our customers have proven this and can only improve from hereon. This augurs well for shift towards a more sustainable transport system in this country,” stated the Managing Director of Scania Southeast Asia, Marie Sjödin Enström.

AONE Logistics Sdn Bhd, the first Scania Ecolution truck customer in Asia, believes that through vehicle optimisation and agreed fuel and CO2 emissions reduction targets can be achieved. The progress to reach the targets will be regularly monitored, evaluated and discussed with the Scania Ecolution Manager periodically to ensure the desired result.

Mohd Sidek Amzah Enterprise, an exclusive LPG distributor in Senai, Johor that believes in the Ecolution way of working regards Scania Ecolution as an important operational tool because as a relatively small player in the market, they are still able to be competitive with the bigger boys. This is partly due to the cost savings from lower fuel consumption, and more importantly, Scania Ecolution helps them to reduce their carbon footprint, lowering their impact to the environment.

As the first major manufacturer of heavy commercial vehicles, Scania’s far-reaching climate targets have officially been approved by the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi). Scania is committed to achieving the Paris agreement goals of limiting global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. Scania will cut CO2 emissions from its own operations by 50 percent by 2025, and reduce emissions from its products by 20 percent during the same period – Scania Ecolution is one of the many initiatives to help achieve this.

“Driving the shift towards a sustainable transport system is Scania’s purpose and we remain fully committed. With the sign-ups progressing rapidly, Scania Ecolution might well become a standard amongst customers in Malaysia, leading the way in Southeast Asia,” concluded Marie.
