New mobile refueling service
Kuala Lumpur, 2 July 2019 – Petroliam Nasional Berhad (Petronas) recently introduced the first mobile refuelling service (ROVR) by Petronas Dagangan Berhad (PDB) in the country. ROVR is an innovative service that offers a seamless refuelling experience for both commercial and everyday drivers, beyond conventional petrol stations.
“At PDB, we invest heavily in understanding the customer journey and we address the frictions in their daily lives by offering progressive solutions. ROVR provides a new refuelling experience, and we are excited to have our customers be the first in Malaysia to experience this,” said Dato’ Sri Syed Zainal Abidin, MD/CEO, PDB.
“I am pleased with this new offering from PDB. It’s not easy for our large trucks to navigate on roads, and some stations set a limitation on large commercial vehicles. With ROVR, we just schedule for fuel deliveries, and ROVR trucks and Rangers will show up for our drivers to refuel without the need to leave the yard or take a detour. This definitely eases logistical planning, reduces costs and improves our time management,” said Sua Hee Yuan, Chief Financial Officer, Landbridge Haulage (M) Sdn Bhd.
The price of fuel depends on minimum order quantity, frequency and truck size. It is currently available in the Klang Valley and will be extended to East Malaysia in 2020.
These fuel trucks are certified for fuel delivery and dispensing according to the stringent health, safety, security, and environmental (HSSE) requirements stipulated by national authorities and regulatory bodies. All trucks are equipped with sensors to monitor vital information and maintain operational safety throughout the duration of service, at all times.
The current fleet includes a 4,000-liter capacity and three 11,000-liter capacity trucks for commercial customers. ROVR’s 3,000-liter capacity truck for end-consumers is at its pilot stage.
