SR Gemilang adopts Scania Ecolution
Ipoh, 9 April 2020 – SR Gemilang Transport (M) Sdn Bhd recently signed the Scania Ecolution partnership agreement in the presence of Muhammad Jaafar, director, M. Aziz, managing director and Heba Eltarifi, managing director, 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.
With a total count of 80 trucks, SR Gemilang added four units of Scania new truck generation (NTG) that efficiently delivered the best uptime in the fleet. Five more units will be delivered in 2021. The earlier Scania trucks acquired in 2015 delivered very good returns as the fuel savings were the best amongst the entire fleet. The NTGs equipped with advanced powertrain and aerodynamic solutions delivered a 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 with M. Aziz started managing haulages of mostly electronic items, food products and garments among other goods.. 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.
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 deliveries to and from the Ipoh free-trade zones.
