Scania XT used for vaccine transportation
Kuching, Sarawak, 29 July 2021 – Mansang Logistics Sdn Bhd (Mansang) successfully transported the Covid-19 vaccine to front liners all over Sarawak in a Scania New Truck Generation (NTG) XT temperature-controlled rigid.
This very important task was recommended to Mansang for the Ministry of Health (MOH). Alex Lai Sian Ann (Alex), managing director of Mansang has taken responsibility to personally deliver the vaccines to the scheduled locations daily.
“We at Scania have and will continue to ensure uptime support to Mansang Logistic in carrying out this very critical assignment as a service to our nation. We are very proud to be part of this very important journey in Sarawak with Alex,” stated Phang Yee Fong, regional manager for East Coast & East Malaysia, Scania Southeast Asia.
“The Scania NTG XT rigid is one of the safest and most reliable truck I have ever experienced, ever since starting the Mansang business as a driver in 2010. All the trucks’ features ensure that we deliver the vaccines to all the scheduled destinations safely and on time,” said Alex.
Mansang is one of the very few companies that could handle this highly delicate transportation procedure, hence the recommendation. Maintaining the required temperature of the vaccines was a task that the refrigerated box-type Scania NTG XT rigid-type could easily handle.
The vaccines are collected daily from MOH and are delivered straight to their designated frontline locations – hospitals and vaccination centres all over Sarawak. This is done by working closely with Polis DiRaja Malaysia.
The trucks are tailored to withstand challenging surroundings, securing uptime and boosting productivity with tougher exteriors and more power. Steel bumper, protection shield, and towing device to handle all obstacles with maximum uptime. The cabin has adjustable seat that is close to the door, ergonomic dashboard, and large windscreen with extended view make it easier for the driver to operate in a comfortable and safe environment.
