fuelwatch14-2oct14-aShah Alam, 2 October 2014 – The winner of Volvo Trucks Malaysia’s Fuelwatch Challenge 2014, Ahmad Bin Othman of Logistik Petikemas Sdn Bhd, Prai, represented Malaysia at the Volvo Trucks Asia Pacific and World Fuelwatch Championship 2014 held in Gothenburg on 16 to 19 September recently.

“Prior to taking part in Volvo Trucks’ Fuelwatch Challenge, I knew driving style could affect fuel consumption and the economy of a business but I never had much opportunity to learn and train under an expert,” said Ahmad Bin Othman.

“It is about creating an awareness of how much difference each individual driver can actually make. Fuelwatch is one way for us to contribute to this. Fuel-efficient driving is something that all drivers can learn, but it takes time and hard work every day,” said Mats Nilsson, Managing Director of Volvo Trucks Malaysia.

The regional competition saw participation from Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, India, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan and Thailand where a total of 14 representatives headed for the Asia Pacific regional final, held in Gothenburg, Sweden, on 17 September.

In the global Fuelwatch Finals, Christian Scheiflinger from Austria took home victory when he won the title of the “World’s most fuel efficient driver” in the world finals of the competition.
