Scania Offers Sustainable Transport Solutions
With customer profitability as the starting point, Scania wants to be the leading provider of sustainable transport. This means integrating sustainability fully into the business and working with others to tackle impacts, transform our industry and create lasting value.
“Scania entered the local market not just to sell trucks and buses but to create a positive impact on the local transport industry. We offer products and solutions that promote road safety and help preserve the environment while at the same time boosting our customers’ profitability through reduced downtime and efficiency in operations,” said Leilani Lim-Tan, Vice President of BJ Mercantile, Inc., the local distributor of Scania.
One such initiative is Ecolution by Scania which is a complete package for reducing fuel consumption and emissions, and consequently, operating costs for transport companies.
Ecolution by Scania focuses on cutting fuel consumption and CO2 emissions to a minimum. It has the potential to decrease fuel consumption by more than 10 percent. This can be done through a package of activities, including CO2 optimized vehicles specified for the lowest fuel consumption, and thus reduced carbon dioxide emissions.
The driver is normally the single most important factor for minimizing fuel consumption and emissions. Being a Scania owner allows access to Scania Driver Training – a program that provides the skills and tools for outstanding driver performance. Scania Driver Support is an on board coaching system that helps drivers maintain and use their acquired skills every day. Scania Driver Follow up sets personal goals for drivers with individual feedback over time. Add to this specific maintenance programs and services designed to keep the vehicle in the best possible condition.
A number of Scania’s local clients have availed of the Scania Fleet Management System. This system enables Scania to provide individual Driver Coaching based on vehicle and environmental reports from Scania Fleet Management.
“We recently joined the Green Philippines exhibit at the SMX to drive awareness about Scania’s role in promoting a more sustainable future. With Ecolution, you get a lasting fuel reduction, reduced emissions, more motivated drivers, less wear and tear, more uptime, a common goal and tight teamwork with our Clients and a harmonious way to improve results” said Ms. Lim Tan.
