Nexus Mega Carriers, a subsidiary of Giga Martime Group is the largest car carrier company in the country, with a fleet of 82 trucks. Out of these, 13 are Scania P340 LA 4×2 MSZ prime movers. Today, Nexus Mega Carriers will be adding another 10 more Scania P340 models to the fleet, bringing the fleet total to 92 by May 2012.

Scania’s latest delivery to Nexus Mega Carriers is part of a 23 trucks contract deal worth RM 7.9 million. Up until last year, Nexus Mega Carriers relied mainly on Asian brand models. According to James Armstrong, Managing Director of Scania (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd., since switching to Scania models, Nexus Mega Carries is able to log between 4,000 km to 5,000 km more per month than before.

“This is testament to Scania’s reliability and robustness combined with superior ergonomics that contributes to better driver comfort, thus leading to higher efficiency and productivity,” said Armstrong.

Also included in the contract is a comprehensive driver training program by Scania.

“We hope that the knowledge and driving skills imparted will contribute to your operating economy and overall improvement in road safety in Malaysia,” added Armstrong.

Scania also provides 24/7 road side assistance to its customers. Customers in rural parts of East Malaysia are supported by Scania mobile workshops, essentially Scania P270 fitted with service tools with two mechanics on-board to provide on-site support to Scania truck users. Scania has operates two service centers in East Malaysia, one in Kota Kinabalu and another in Bintulu.

“Nexus Mega Carriers has always been confident with Scania. Combined with its comprehensive network of professional service workshops, we look forward to higher productivity and operation with Scania vehicles to match our anticipated growth forecast in vehicle haulage this year,” said Captain Cheong Yut Seng, Chief Executive Officer of Nexus Mega Carriers Sdn. Bhd.

The Scania P340 LA 4×2 MSZ prime mover is powered by a 340 hp Euro3 engine, equipped with ABS, traction control, cruise control and speed limiter.
