KUCHING, Dec 28: Trienekens (Sarawak) Sdn Bhd (Trienekens) recently upgraded its fleet of trucks with the addition of several new trucks to the company’s existing fleet in Kuching and Bintulu.
The waste collection and management company, in a media statement today, said the upgrading exercise demonstrated the company’s commitment to environmental preservation as regular updating of vehicles encompasses many facets of sustainability, including improving fuel efficiency, reducing harmful emissions, besides aligning vehicles to the current service cycle and geographic locale.
Trienekens pointed out that an important benefit of upgrading commercial fleet vehicles is it reduces vehicle maintenance costs and extends the vehicle’s length of service.
The company explained that older fleet vehicles often require lengthier and more expensive maintenance due to the severe wear and tear they experience.
As a result, the company noted those costlier repairs can impact its service efficiency.
Trienekens’ logistics and services divisional manager Lee Ghee Seng said, “We pay special attention to our trucks’ safety obsolescence – it’s just as important to replace an older truck for safety benefits as it is for economic reasons.
“The new trucks have improved performance durability, with the latest technological advancements as they are fitted with Global Positioning System (GPS), rear view cameras and air bags. The navigation technology will help improve our drivers’ route planning towards better efficiency for collection services, thus increasing overall customer satisfaction,” said Lee.
In line with the company’s focus on quality and resilience of machineries, Trienekens adopts an international logistics model which features safety and ergonomic considerations for the workforce playing a vital role in vehicle selection.
Trienekens highlighted that its drivers and attendants also enjoy more comfort with the new trucks as they are fitted with larger cabins, fully equipped air-conditioning systems and wider seats. — DayakDaily
