Starrtrek Carriers Sdn Bhd scores all three wins for Scania’s ‘A Good Driver’ (AGD) Competition 2021/2022 truck category and is the best ‘A Good Company’ (AGC).

All three winners capitalised on the Scania Ecolution Fleet Management System (FMS) Control 1 training to score these top three spots by achieving the best fuel economy and CO2 emissions reduction.

They were recognised at Starrtrek’s facility in Puncak Alam. Muhammad Rifaie Abdul Rahman of Starrtrek Carriers received the recognition of the best AGC from Daniel Tan, Solution Sales Director of Scania Southeast Asia.

“Congratulations to Khairul Anwar who is the AGD champion driving the Scania truck registration VGV 6398. Mat Sarimi driving Scania registration VGV 3968 is the first runner-up and Zaizul Fakerurozi driving Scania registration VGV 3986 truck is the second runner-up.

Starrtrek’s data analyses of its drivers’ performance resulted in the AGD and AGC wins and reduced CO2 emissions for future generations.” stated Daniel Tan, Solutions Sales Director, Scania Southeast Asia.

Under an AGC, drivers automatically qualify as long as they are part of the Scania Ecolution partnerships and drive the specific vehicles under the programme. The vehicles they drive are marked with a Scania Ecolution sticker plus a t-shirt with AGD Qualifier Badge.

To win, a good driver’s driving must result in the best percentage of kilometre per litre improvement throughout the duration. This is tracked using Scania’s Fleet Management System.

The 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will then be crowned with a certificate and a host of attractive Scania premium prizes. The best that drives consistently in a safe, fuel-efficient, and environmentally friendly way will receive a Champion Jacket with AGD Champion Badge. The companies, where winners work, receive service vouchers worth MYR5,000/3,000/1,000 respectively.

Over 478 Scania vehicles from over 42 customers in Malaysia are part of Scania Ecolution. These good companies and good drivers are also part of the global effort to achieve their ESG and Science Based Targets together with Scania. Scania is committed towards minimising emissions from its products and its own operations.

These include cutting CO2 emissions by 20 percent from its land transport per transported tonne by 2025 (using 2015 as a baseline), and 50 percent from Scania’s own operation. As an Ecolution partner with Scania, the good company and their drivers play a part in the journey towards achieving the reduction of CO2 emissions in line with the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi) drawn at the Paris Agreement in 2015.

“The Scania Ecolution partnership has managed to significantly lower fuel consumption of Starrtrek’s Scania fleet and reduced CO2 emissions by 704,610 kg in the period of 2021/2022. That is equivalent to planting approximately 10,570 trees.

This achievement helps us work towards meeting our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) goals.” stated Muhammad Rifaie, Senior Operation Executive of Starrtrek Carriers.

Starrtrek specialises in the carrier transportation of all types of vehicle with minimal handling and maximum safety. One of the 15 Starrtrek carriers is an enclosed luxury carrier that maintains confidentiality of the cars transported.

All 15 Scania G-series prime movers, known for fuel efficiency, increased payload, and improved productivity for long distance trips are tailored to Starrtrek’s semi-trailer’s needs to ensure that every technical aspect between both assets (trailers and prime movers) work together as intended.

These Scania prime movers are fitted with the Fleet Management System (FMS) Control 1, tracking in real-time and fitted with surveillance cameras for safety and compliance. The data collected in terms of fuel-efficiency and kilometre per litre via FMS are analysed to determine the performance of the drivers.
