To achieve it, driver and vehicle performances are tracked via Scania Fleet Management 10 package, analysed and discussed between TTK and Scania periodically in order to implement the right solutions.
“We are pleased that the Scania Ecolution way of working initiated by Scania for its customers is going to help us save more fuel by raising the standards of our drivers. And more importantly, after all these years we are finally doing something about reducing our Carbon Dioxide CO2 emission and doing our bit to reduce climate change,” said Ben.
“We have been using Scania trucks since 2000 and impressed by its performance, especially the fuel savings, started buying even more since 2012 and to date we have a strong fleet of 100 Scania trucks that was purchased from Scania Malaysia,” said Ben.
3% fuel savings
After two decades of using Scania trucks, TTK welcomes the introduction of the Scania New Truck Generation due to its design features such as the advanced powertrain and aerodynamic solutions that delivers a minimum of 3% fuel savings.
