October 25, 2019, Kuala Lumpur – Scania (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, the official distributor of Scania commercial vehicles in Malaysia, has delivered 23 units of Scania buses to Sani Express Sdn Bhd.
Sani Express will use the 23 new buses as part of its business practice of changing and upgrading its fleet to provide their customers with comfortable, safe and greener ride.
A handover ceremony took place at Terminal Bersepadu Selatan in Bandar Tasik Selatan and saw the first batch of the new buses being presented by Scania Southeast Asia managing director Marie Sjödin Enström to Sani Express group managing director Wan Mohd Iskandar Dato’ Salleh.
Iskandar cited that performance, reliability, safety and lower fuel consumption as some of the reasons for choosing Scania as part of its fleet.
“It is important for us to refresh our buses every five years in order to provide our customers with the best service and Scania buses have proven themselves to be the right vehicles for our passengers. The new Scania buses would give us the opportunity to continue providing our customers with comfortable and worry free travel,” said Iskandar in a statement.
Sani Express has puchased Scania’s K410EB6X2 buses that are equipped with Scania Opticruise function, low noise level with full air suspension for unparalleled comfort levels, electronic braking system, Scania Retarder, traction control, high torque at lower revs engine, fully adjustable steering wheel and hanging padals. The company also subscribed to the Fleet Management System Control 5 package and Scania Driver Training.
These features along with the subscribed packages resulted in a bus that is safe, comfortable and fuel efficient for long distance travel with minimised impact to the environment. Sani Express also signed up as a Scania Ecolution partner as part of the company’s sustainability efforts to reduce their fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The partnership focuses on reducing operating cost, which translate to improve profitability while fulfilling the growing demand for green initiatives.
