Viva Haulage Sdn Bhd (Viva) has increased its capabilities with the delivery of a Scania truck to the company which specializes in container haulage business for major forwarding agents and freight forwarders in Port Klang.
The Scania P410LA 6×2 MSZ truck will be Viva’s first new Scania truck and comes with a host of added benefits to ensure maximum support for its customers. Handing over the keys to the truck to Mr Tee Wah Meng, Director of Viva Haulage Sdn Bhd, was Tuan Haji Idros Puteh, Sales Director, Scania Southeast Asia.
“We consider ourselves small in size compared to other bigger haulage operators, but we are very focused in what we do and we tie ourselves very well with strategic partners in the logistic business rather than cover the full logistics chain, enabling us to maintain double-digit growth after we went really aggressive in 2014,” said Tee.
Planning to secure more trucks in the very near future, Viva will seriously consider Scania trucks especially for their safety, fuel economy, powerful performance, reliability and uptime.
“I am very pleased with my decision to finally get my first new Scania truck and know that Viva’s business operations will benefit from the 2-years free Scania Assistance, the 2-years free Scania Maintenance and the 10 years free Scania Fleet Management System. And by financially securing the truck via Scania Credit Sdn Bhd, my business can now expand further,” added Tee.
Viva also believes that its drivers are the most important asset of the company and intends to train his drivers more. With the activation of the Scania Fleet Management System Viva would be able to identify specific training needs for its drivers based on the vehicle and driver data.
The Scania P410LA 6×2 MSZ truck comes with a powerful engine with higher torque at lower revs, delivering better drivability and fuel-efficiency.
The Scania Opticruise automated manual gearbox that comes as standard, provides the best gear-change and gives Viva drivers more time spent on handling the truck and managing the fuel economy. This feature also reduces clutch and synchromesh wear and tear.
The driver station ergonomics offers superior comfort for the drivers, keeping Viva drivers focused and alert at all times.
“We are happy to have Viva’s trust in Scania’s sustainable transport solutions. We continue to support Viva in helping them achieve the best profitability in the long term,” said Idros.
