Datuk Kumar Prabakaran, Managing Director of Starrtrek also invested in six more G360A4x2NA and signed-up for the Fleet Management System (FMS) Control 1, Maintenance Contract alongside Scania Financial Services, including Insurance.

The Scania G360A4x2EB (one unit) and G360A4x2NA (six units) NTGs that were delivered were the first choice for fuel efficiency, increased payload, and improved productivity for long distance trips throughout Peninsula Malaysia.

Engineered with versatility in mind and able to safely transport special cars with minimal handling and maximum safety, one of the seven carrier is an enclosed luxury carrier that maintains confidentiality of the cars transported.

This is to cater for the buoyant market of supercars that is steadily growing. The strength of the remaining six carriers lay in its loading capacity (up to 10 units) simplicity of use and adaptation to extreme road and climate conditions.

“Starrtrek is built on a foundation of vast experiences and knowledge from years of service in the automotive logistics industry and is the first automotive logistics company to bring European-made carriers into Malaysia, giving Starrtrek the competitive edge to stay ahead. These carriers are game changers in Malaysia’s automotive logistics market,” said Datuk Kumar.

Heba El Tarifi, Managing Director, Scania Southeast Asia and Datuk Kumar Prabakaran, Managing Director, Starrtrek Carriers Sdn. Bhd. with the management and executives of Scania SEA showing the thumbs-up for this sustainable partnership.

“We are very pleased that Starrtrek chose Scania prime movers to be part of its visionary move to be the premium transporter of cars and SUVs, especially supercars. The investment that Starrtrek has made to secure the technologically advanced NTGs will bring long term profitability to the company,” stated Heba El Tarifi, Managing Director, Scania Southeast Asia.

The Scania Prime Movers are fitted with the Fleet Management System (FMS) Control 1 – this will enable Starrtrek to monitor the progress of its drivers and ensure that the agreed targets of km/litre are met. The FMS presents an opportunity for Starrtrek to sign the Scania Ecolution partnership agreement for a structured approach to fuel savings and reduce the operation’s impact on the environment with the reduction of Carbon Dioxide emissions. This is in support of Starrtrek’s intention to reduce the operation’s impact on the environment.

The NTGs ensure a cost-effective investment as they are designed and engineered to give Scania truck owners better fuel efficiency as they are equipped with advanced powertrain and aerodynamic solutions. This gives more than 3% fuel economy as a standard. And when coupled with the Fleet Management System Control 1, more fuel savings could be achieved. Furthermore, the Opticruise gearbox gives the Scania NTGs a pre-set default Economy mode for even more fuel savings. The Scania NTGs are also FAME prepared, ready for biodiesel up to B100 usage to care for the environment by reducing global emissions.

Scania Maintenance Contract gives predictable costs, so that Starrtrek can focus its time and energy on its core business, worry-free. By individually optimising the different modules in its service plan, Scania ensures via the maintenance contract that downtime is planned and only occurs when absolutely necessary.

These Scania NTGs provide a very comfortable adjustable driver seat that is placed closer to the door, with ergonomic dashboard with a 5-inch touchscreen that works very well for the drivers. And most importantly the large windscreen with extended view which gives clear visibility from the different angles for the drivers, making it easier for them to operate in a comfortable and safe environment. Other safety features include the Electronic Braking System (EBS) for responsive emergency braking.
