    Each of the tankers consists of a prime mover hauling two trailers, one behind each other, with a total length of 18 metres and a gross train weight (GTW) of 61,000kg. Able to carry a maximum load of 54,600 litres, it is designed and manufactured according to the stringent international UN/ADR standards for road transportation of hazardous goods.

    The tanker was unveiled today by PDB’s Senior General Manager of Supply and Distribution Division, Mohamad Yazid Mansor together with Acting Technical Director from Road Transport Department, Ir Mohamed Dalib.

    Also present were representatives from Scania (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, Focal Manufacturing Sdn Bhd, and the operator of the vehicles, Shaziman Transport Sdn Bhd Initially, the two units of the tankers will deliver A1 jet fuel to customers in Peninsular Malaysia.
