Scania XT Tipper Handles Tough Conditions in Singapore

Braving challenging terrain with Scania tipper trucks gives Singaporean Chuan Lim Construction a smoother ride ahead for business. As tipper truck number 21 enters the construction site, the driver prepares to navigate through uneven dirt roads and mud pools. As he steers, he is mindful that the rainfall the evening before has softened the earth further. Nevertheless, the Scania tipper truck proves its mettle by reversing confidently to its final position. The driver, wanting to do a final check, is able to climb safely onto a side inspection step to view the load. Once ready to continue, he re-enters the cab to tip the truck’s gravel load smoothly while continuing onto his next task.
This truck is one of Chuan Lim Construction’s 18 Scania P 410 tippers acquired over the past year. They join the 40 Scania tipper trucks from earlier generations in the group’s combined fleet of about 200 trucks.
While reducing operating cost is a priority, Chuan Lim Construction is also concerned about increasing vehicle uptime. It is often more important to consider the quality of the services support when making a purchase decision.
To maximise operating economy on the new trucks, Chuan Lim Construction subscribes to Scania’s repair and maintenance package. Scania further supports the company with fleet management solutions and the company has also prepared for its drivers to undertake driver training and coaching to improve their skills.
