2021 Shanghai International Automotive Chassis System & Manufacturing Engineering Technology Expo

Scania Singapore announced that it has commenced sales for its battery electric trucks from 6 April 2022. It also announced the signing of a sales agreement today with its first customer, ALBA W&H Smart City, for 15 battery electric trucks, the first European-branded battery electric trucks in Singapore.

The L230B6X2*4NB trucks will be delivered in two batches. With the initial batch, which is already in production planning, Scania will homologate its battery electric trucks and the respective charging infrastructure in Singapore, while the second batch will demonstrate Scania’s ability to rolled out the vehicles on a fleet level.

In launching battery electric trucks, Scania aims to contribute to Singapore’s goal for all vehicles to run on cleaner energy by 2040 as well as Scania’s science-based targets for a 20% reduction in Scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions generated through customers’ usage of its products.

“We are very pleased to welcome ALBA W&H Smart City as our pioneering partner towards more sustainable transportation in Singapore,” says Anders Liss, Country Manager of Scania Singapore. “It’s a significant leap forward in showcasing carbon-neutral transportation at a time when more organisations are coming on board to address the global climate crisis. ALBA together with Scania in a sustainable partnership is now part of the SG Green Plan 2030 journey towards net-zero emissions.”

“Being a city state, Singapore is the logical choice for us to establish our first fleet of fully electric vehicles,” said Sashi Kumar, General Manager of Solid Waste from ALBA W&H Smart City. “However, at the same time it is a highly competitive and demanding market with the highest service level expected worldwide, including daily collections and up to 12-hour shifts of continuous operation.”

Mr Kumar added: “We have monitored the market for electric vehicles for several years now and are happy that with Scania’s battery electric trucks, we finally found an electrified chassis that is ready for our daily grind of waste collection in the clean and green city of Singapore.”

The battery electric trucks can operate at close to zero emissions when using cleaner sources of electricity supplemented with the purchase of renewable energy certificates.

Each truck operates as a permanent magnet electric machine with oil spray cooling, with peak propulsion of about 295kW, 2,200 Nm and continuous propulsion of about 230 kW, 1300 Nm. With up to 250 km range on a single charge, it can cover short and medium distances on electric power.

Nine lithium-ion batteries, with an installed capacity of 297 kW, are backed by up to eight years of warranty. Direct current charging is carried out by the European-standard CCS type 2 plug-in connection at up to 130 kW/ 200 A.

In Singapore, customers can choose from the P-cab or L-cab series and 4x2, 6x2 or 6x2*4 wheel configurations with a maximum gross trailer weight of 28 tonnes. The battery electric trucks are suitable for urban operations such as distribution, waste collection, hook lifts, tippers and concrete mixers.

Mr Liss added: “An investment in a battery electric truck improves operators’ branding and market competitiveness as responsible organisations. They are addressing their own climate goals as well as the climate goals of their customers and society.”

Scania’s battery electric trucks are sold as a total solution with charging infrastructure, vehicle optimisation customised to the customer’s operations, repair and maintenance services and the option for financing and insurance services.

ALBA W&H Smart City is a joint venture between Berlin-based ALBA Group, one of the leading recycling and environmental services companies as well as raw material providers worldwide, and Wah & Hua, a leading Singapore waste management provider. In Singapore, the company is the NEA appointed Public Waste Collector for Jurong and Woodlands-Yishun sectors, where ALBA has established itself to be a leader in the space with their innovative suite of sustainability, digitalisation, and productivity solutions.

นางสาวดวงใจ พงศ์ประเทืองสุข ผู้มากด้วยความสามารถ ประสบการณ์สายยานยนต์ และวิสัยทัศน์ที่สแกนเนียมองหา ขึ้นรับหน้าที่ผู้นำฝ่ายขายท่ามกลางยุคโควิด-19 เพื่อหาทางตอบโจทย์ลูกค้าคนไทยให้รวดเร็ว และมีประสิทธิภาพมากขึ้น ทั้งในกลุ่มรถรถบรรทุก และรถโดยสาร พร้อมมองยอดขายครึ่งปีหลังยังคงเติบโตต่อเนื่อง

นางสาวดวงใจ พงศ์ประเทืองสุข ผู้อำนวยการฝ่ายปฏิบัติการงานขาย บริษัท สแกนเนีย สยาม จำกัดคือผู้หญิงมากความสามารถที่อยู่ในแวดวงธุรกิจยานยนต์มานานกว่า 15 ปี และมีความหลงใหลในศิลปะการขาย แถมยังมีคุณสมบัติตรงตามที่สแกนเนียมองหา ซึ่งก่อนจะมารับตำแหน่งนี้ เธอทำหน้าที่ผู้จัดการในส่วนบริการทางการเงินให้กับ บริษัท สแกนเนีย สยาม ลีสซิ่ง จำกัด

“ดิฉันจบจากคณะอักษรศาสตร์ จุฬาลงกรณ์มหาวิทยาลัย มาเริ่มต้นชีวิตการทำงานด้วยการเป็นประชาสัมพันธ์ให้กับสายการบินแห่งหนึ่ง ผ่านไปหลายปี รู้สึกตัวเองต้องการความท้าทายใหม่ๆ จึงย้ายมาทำเกี่ยวกับการขายให้กับบริษัทเช่ารถแห่งหนึ่ง และค้นพบว่าตัวเองรักงานขาย งานที่ต้องพบเจอผู้คนมากมาย งานที่ต้องทำความเข้าใจ และตอบโจทย์ความต้องการของลูกค้าให้ถูกต้อง งานที่ต้องพัฒนาตัวเองให้ทันทุกความท้าทายที่เข้ามาไม่ซ้ำในแต่ละวัน เมื่อรู้ตัว ดิฉันก็ตามหาความท้าทายใหม่ที่มากขึ้นไปอีกขึ้น ตอนนั้นเห็นโอกาสในธุรกิจรถขนาดใหญ่ พอดีกับสแกนเนีย สยาม ลีสซิ่ง เปิดรับอยู่ในตอนนั้น เลยเริ่มเข้ามาในธุรกิจนี้ และเมื่อปีที่ผ่านมา สแกนเนียมีการปรับผังองค์กรให้มีการทำงานมีประสิทธิภาพมากขึ้น เพื่อบริการลูกค้าให้ดีขึ้น รวดเร็วยิ่งขึ้น โดยเริ่มจากฝ่ายขายก่อนเป็นอันดับแรก ซึ่งตำแหน่งผู้อำนวยการปฏิบัติการงานขายนี้ จะเป็นการรวมการขายกับบริการทางการเงิน หรือไฟแนนซ์ให้ทำงานมีประสิทธิภาพมากขึ้น ดิฉันได้ทำงานกับสแกนเนีย สยาม ลีสซิ่ง อยู่แล้ว จึงคว้าโอกาสเข้ามายืนในจุดนี้ค่ะ” นางสาวดวงใจกล่าว

นอกจากนี้การที่เป็นผู้หญิงแต่ได้ก้าวขึ้นมาสู่ตำแหน่งนี้นั้น คุณดวงใจมองว่า บริษัท สแกนเนียเป็นองค์กรที่มีวัฒนธรรมแห่งความเท่าเทียม ไม่ว่าจะเป็นชายหรือหญิง ไม่ว่าจะเชื้อชาติ อายุ วัฒนธรรมใดๆ ก็สามารถทำงานในตำแหน่งที่สำคัญได้ โดยในปัจจุบัน ผู้บริหารระดับผู้จัดการขึ้นไปของสแกนเนียในประเทศไทยเองก็มีชายหญิงในจำนวนเท่าๆ กัน

ในส่วนของการเพิ่มประสิทธิภาพในการทำงานของฝ่ายขาย นางสาวดวงใจ กล่าวว่า ทางสแกนเนียทำให้ลูกค้าสะดวกมากขึ้นด้วยบริการแบบ One Stop Service ที่มีระบบงานขาย พร้อมการจัดไฟแนนซ์ และประกันภัยที่ครบจบในที่เดียว ทำให้ลูกค้าคนไทยที่สนใจทั้งรถบรรทุก และรถโดยสารสามารถเป็นเจ้าของรถสแกนเนียได้ง่ายขึ้น โดยในส่วนของกลยุทธ์การตลาดในครึ่งปีหลังของรถบรรทุกหัวลาก และรถบัสของสแกนเนีย จะมีการปรับแผนเพื่อสอดรับกับความต้องการ และรูปแบบการทำงานของลูกค้าให้มากที่สุด เรียกว่า “Tailor-Made Solution”

นอกจากนี้ในโอกาสพิเศษที่ สแกนเนีย สยาม ฉลองครบรอบ 35 ปีในประเทศไทย จึงได้มีการออกรถรุ่นพิเศษ “Yak Edition” เพื่อตอกย้ำแนวทางการขนส่งอย่างยั่งยืนในวันนี้ สู่อนาคตธุรกิจที่เหนือกว่า (Sustainable Transport – Now and Beyond) แสดงความเป็นผู้นำในตลาดรถขนส่งเพื่อการพาณิชย์ ด้วยที่สุดยอดงานวิศวกรรม ที่มาพร้อมความหมายที่เป็นศิริมงคล และมีความเป็นเอกลักษณ์ไทย โดยรุ่นพิเศษนี้ได้รับความสนใจ และได้รับเสียงตอบรับที่ดีจากลูกค้า

สำหรับแผนการขายในครึ่งปีหลัง นางสาวดวงใจ กล่าวว่า “ในปีนี้ธุรกิจรถโดยสารต้องเผชิญกับผลกระทบจากโควิดอย่างรุนแรง สแกนเนียพยายามอย่างเต็มที่ที่จะเคียงข้างลูกค้ากลุ่มรถโดยสารของเราให้ฝ่าวิกฤตนี้ไปได้ด้วยกัน และพร้อมกลับมายืนอย่างเข้มแข็งได้หลังจากนี้ สำหรับกลุ่มรถบรรทุก รถหัวลาก เรามองว่าจะมี 4 – 5 ธุรกิจที่จะเติบโตอย่างต่อเนื่องและรู้ว่าคาแรคเตอร์ของรถสแกนเนียเป็นเกรดพรีเมียมโดยมีสมรรถนะที่ไม่เป็นรองใครในตลาด ซึ่งเวลาที่ไปติดต่อกับลูกค้าเราก็ต้องแสดงให้ลูกค้าเห็นถึงข้อได้เปรียบของรถเรา เช่น สมรรถนะที่ไปได้ทุกเส้นทาง คงทน ประหยัดน้ำมันมากขึ้นจากรุ่นเดิมอย่างน้อย 5% พร้อมทั้งมีบริการหลังการขายที่มีคุณภาพ และการบำรุงรักษารถ ที่เรียกว่า Flexible Maintenance โดยระบบจะช่วยประเมินการใช้งานของรถเพื่อเช็คระยะการซ่อมบำรุงที่จำเป็น นี่คือการเพิ่มประสิทธิภาพการทำงานให้ลูกค้า โดยที่ลูกค้าไม่ต้องกังวล เรามุ่งเน้นนโยบาย “Sustainable transportation” ก็คือการเติบโตอย่างยั่งยืนในเรื่องขนส่ง ซึ่งนัยยะสำคัญคือ ให้ลูกค้า เติบโต มั่งคั่ง ยั่งยืน ไปพร้อมๆ กับเรา ด้วย “Solution Sale” ที่ทีมขายของเราจะดูแลลูกค้าตั้งแต่ขั้นตอนการขาย อนุมัติสินเชื่อ รวมถึงประกันภัย เมื่อลูกค้าได้รับรถก็จะมีความเชื่อมั่นในบริการหลังการขาย และประกันภัยที่เราเองมีพร้อมมาสนับสนุนลูกค้าอย่างชัดเจน ทำให้เรามั่นใจว่ายอดขายปลายปีนี้ของเราจะต้องเพิ่มขึ้นอย่างแน่นอน”

ผู้อำนวยการฝ่ายปฏิบัติการงานขาย บริษัท สแกนเนีย สยาม จำกัดกล่าวทิ้งท้ายว่า สำหรับในเรื่องของการส่งมอบรถให้กับลูกค้านั้น ทางสแกนเนีย สยาม มีทีม Business Support ที่จะมาคุยกับทางฝ่ายขายถึงความต้องการของรถในแต่ละเดือน หรือในแต่ละไตรมาสว่าเป็นอย่างไร เพื่อวางแผนบริหารจัดการสั่งรถล่วงหน้า ลูกค้าจึงไม่ต้องกังวลใจเรื่องการส่งมอบหากซื้อรถกับทางสแกนเนีย

Almuin, Pengangkut LPG Scania New Truck Generation Pertama di Pantai Timur Menandatangani Ecolution untuk Mengurangkan Jejak Karbon

Almuin Trading Sdn Bhd (Almuin) menjadi pengangkut Gas Petroleum Cecair (LPG) Scania New Truck Generation (NTG) yang pertama di Pantai Timur Malaysia untuk menandatangani perjanjian Scania Ecolution ke arah usaha syarikat dalam mengurangkan jejak karbon dan kesannya kepada alam sekitar.

“Setelah mendapat penghantaran Scania NTG yang telah memenangi anugerah, saya mengambil keputusan untuk menjadi syarikat yang baik dengan menandatangani Scania Ecolution, didorong oleh kontrak Repair & Maintenance yang ditandatangani pada suku pertama 2021,” kata Amirol Ariff Azlam, Pengarah Almuin.

Scania Ecolution adalah perkongsian khusus antara Scania dan pelanggannya yang menumpu pada pengurangan jejak karbon pelanggan. Ini dicapai melalui penggunaan bahan api lebih rendah yang membawa kepada pengurangan dalam pelepasan Karbon Dioksida (CO2) ke atmosfera. Perkongsian ini juga memberi tumpuan kepada pengurangan dalam kos operasi, justeru membawa kepada keuntungan lebih baik di samping memenuhi permintaan yang semakin meningkat bagi inisiatif mesra alam.

"Perniagaan teras kami adalah pengedaran LPG di Kelantan. Kami mendapat bekalan LPG dari Kerteh, Terengganu, dan melakukan perjalanan ulang alik 600 kilometer setiap hari. Dengan Scania NTG, kami melihat penjimatan yang baik dalam penggunaan bahan api. Secara purata, Scania NTG berupaya melakukan perjalanan antara 18,000km hingga 20,000km sebulan, dan dengan ciri rekaan Scania NTG seperti ‘powertrain’ yang canggih serta penyelesaian aerodinamik, kami dengan mudahnya melihat penjimatan harian sebanyak 3% atau lebih,” kata Amirol.

Almuin melabur dalam Scania NTG berdasarkan pengesyoran daripada rakan-rakan dalam perniagaan. Keputusan untuk memilih jenama Scania adalah berdasarkan kejayaannya, terutama dari segi perbelanjaan operasi oleh pengendali trak Scania. Amirol cukup yakin untuk mengikuti keputusan yang telah dicuba dan diuji oleh orang lain tanpa mengalaminya sendiri. “Paling penting, Scania mempunyai pusat Penjualan dan Perkhidmatan di Kota Bharu, menjadikannya mudah untuk menyelenggarakan trak Scania kami di samping mencapai uptime yang maksimum untuk semua penggerak utama Scania kami,” tambah Amirol.

Beberapa ciri utama yang memanfaatkan Almuin termasuk reka bentuk dan bahagian depan Scania NTG yang baharu serta casis untuk dinamik yang lebih baik; penyelenggaraan berdasarkan pengendalian bagi meningkatkan uptime dan keuntungan; panel kawalan pemandu ergonomik dan tempat duduk pemandu yang boleh diselaraskan dengan lebih baik berhampiran pintu untuk keselesaan. Dari segi keselamatan, Sistem Brek Elektronik (EBS) dan Pembatas Kelajuan (Speed limiter) menjadikan Scania NTG antara trak penggerak utama yang paling selamat di dunia. Selain itu, kaca depan besar yang memberikan pandangan lebih luas menyediakan keselamatan dan keselesaan tambahan bagi pemandu.

“Pada masa ini, kami berusaha untuk mendapat langganan latihan dan bimbingan pemandu supaya prestasi pemandu dari segi mengurangkan masa terbiar, pembrekan keras dan memandu melebihi had laju sambil meningkat luncuran, boleh membawa kepada pengurangan dalam penggunaan bahan api,” kata Amirol.

“Almuin merupakan pelanggan setia Scania yang yakin dengan cara kerja Scania dan juga serius dalam mendekati pengurangan karbon melalui penyelesaian yang menyeluruh. Berurusan dengan Scania adalah seperti berada di sebuah pusat sehenti, daripada mendaftar untuk Repair & Maintenance hingga memperoleh Perkhidmatan Kewangan. Sememangnya, Scania benar-benar membuktikan ini,” kata Phang Yee Fong, Pengurus Serantau - Timur, Scania Southeast Asia.

Almuin, singkatan untuk Ayer Lanas Multi Industry (sebelum ini dikenali sebagai Perniagaan Haji Mustafa dan Anak-Anak), ditubuhkan pada tahun 1992 untuk perdagangan dan pengangkutan produk perkakasan. Ia juga merupakan pengedar eksklusif Petronas LPG untuk kawasan Jeli, Tanah Merah dan Gua Musang, Kelantan. “Kami berharap untuk mengembangkan perniagaan dengan mendapat lebih banyak pelanggan kargo sambil berusaha memperluas jangkauan pengedaran LPG ke kawasan di mana Petronas LPG tidak diedarkan. Kami juga merancang untuk berbuat demikian dengan kaedah yang mesra alam dan mampan melalui Scania Ecolution,” kata Amirol.

Scania Singapore announced that it has commenced sales for its battery electric trucks from 6 April 2022. It also announced the signing of a sales agreement today with its first customer, ALBA W&H Smart City, for 15 battery electric trucks, the first European-branded battery electric trucks in Singapore.

The L230B6X2*4NB trucks will be delivered in two batches. With the initial batch, which is already in production planning, Scania will homologate its battery electric trucks and the respective charging infrastructure in Singapore, while the second batch will demonstrate Scania’s ability to rolled out the vehicles on a fleet level.

In launching battery electric trucks, Scania aims to contribute to Singapore’s goal for all vehicles to run on cleaner energy by 2040 as well as Scania’s science-based targets for a 20% reduction in Scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions generated through customers’ usage of its products.

“We are very pleased to welcome ALBA W&H Smart City as our pioneering partner towards more sustainable transportation in Singapore,” says Anders Liss, Country Manager of Scania Singapore. “It’s a significant leap forward in showcasing carbon-neutral transportation at a time when more organisations are coming on board to address the global climate crisis. ALBA together with Scania in a sustainable partnership is now part of the SG Green Plan 2030 journey towards net-zero emissions.”

“Being a city state, Singapore is the logical choice for us to establish our first fleet of fully electric vehicles,” said Sashi Kumar, General Manager of Solid Waste from ALBA W&H Smart City. “However, at the same time it is a highly competitive and demanding market with the highest service level expected worldwide, including daily collections and up to 12-hour shifts of continuous operation.”

Mr Kumar added: “We have monitored the market for electric vehicles for several years now and are happy that with Scania’s battery electric trucks, we finally found an electrified chassis that is ready for our daily grind of waste collection in the clean and green city of Singapore.”

The battery electric trucks can operate at close to zero emissions when using cleaner sources of electricity supplemented with the purchase of renewable energy certificates.

Each truck operates as a permanent magnet electric machine with oil spray cooling, with peak propulsion of about 295kW, 2,200 Nm and continuous propulsion of about 230 kW, 1300 Nm. With up to 250 km range on a single charge, it can cover short and medium distances on electric power.

Nine lithium-ion batteries, with an installed capacity of 297 kW, are backed by up to eight years of warranty. Direct current charging is carried out by the European-standard CCS type 2 plug-in connection at up to 130 kW/ 200 A.

In Singapore, customers can choose from the P-cab or L-cab series and 4x2, 6x2 or 6x2*4 wheel configurations with a maximum gross trailer weight of 28 tonnes. The battery electric trucks are suitable for urban operations such as distribution, waste collection, hook lifts, tippers and concrete mixers.

Asian Trucker Roadshow: Reporting from NUFAM

NUFAM is a leading trade fair of the commercial vehicle sector attracting visitors from Germany and the neighbouring European countries.

Compact and yet comprehensive, clearly structured and also diverse, it offers a concentrated overview of the entire portfolio of the commercial vehicle sector. Easy access and the useful combination of exhibition and professional programme make NUFAM a valuable information, presentation and decision-making platform for four days.

It was held from 28 September to 1 October 2023. 

We connected with Michal Luberadzki, who provided us with a live report about the latest trends, exciting updates and an overall assessment of the industry from the show.

Asian Trucker Roadshow: Van-Tastic New Gran Max Test Drive

Recently launched, the new Gran Max with Euro IV engine is set to build upon the reputation the vehicle has garnered already. Stefan Pertz took two versions of the iconic van out for an in-depth test.

It is always a very special moment when one gets to drive a brand-new vehicle. Even more so, when said automobile has been launched only recently. In this case, it was even more exciting as the test drive was to be done without any restrictions, such as being confined to a test track or just having a few minutes before the next driver can hop in. Testing the Gran Max pickup and panel van, two full days were allowed for with no limitations on where to go (within the limits of the Movement Control Order, of course).  

Association of Malaysian Hauliers to Protest Against DGC Price Increase

The Association of Malaysian Hauliers to Protest Against DGC Price Increase has announced that members are to protest against a price increase for depot services. The press release reads as follows, here reproduced without amendments:

"ASSOCIATION PROTEST TO THE ICS DEPOT SERVICES SDN. BHD. DGC PRICE INCREASE FROM 1ST SEPTEMBER 2021 UNTIL 7TH SEPTEMBER 2021 

The members Association of Malaysian Hauliers has recently faced unprecedented hike in depot charges as a result of the increase in the service charges imposed by certain depot operators. The increase in charges had caused a huge impact on our members. At this moment our members are forced to consume the costs and restructure our activities and in the near
short term are forced to transfer the costs to our customers, as our members are unable to absorb the increase especially during this period of Covid-19 Pandemic.

The snowball effect of the increase in charges would definitely render Malaysia as an unattractive business environment.

We vehemently protest to the increase in the charges by the depot operators effective 1st September 2021 and it has received a lot of disagreement and disappointment among the association members. As to voice our disappointment our members have with one voice agreed to stage a protest and not submit to the pressure of the depot operator namely
ICS.

At the same time, we have engaged our solicitors to take the appropriate action and advise us the next course of action not limited to lodging complaints with the Authorities.
The Association is ready to explore and engage with the relevant parties to achieve an amicable solution.

President
Association of Malaysian Hauliers
25th August 2021"
