Choosing Truck In Starting The Business
“Many problems will arise if we make the wrong choice in purchasing a truck used for support transportation of business operations.”
Choosing the truck as the support transportation is an important element not to be passed up. The truck is an investment asset and its purchase both requires a lot of money and is risky and because of that, a company will need a well-thought consideration before deciding to purchase a truck to avoid mistakes that will cost the company later.
In running his coal mine business, Beni Pranoto and partner Andi Tirtasasmita, have chosen UD Trucks Quester trucks for mine loading and transportation. Directors of PT Sinsumo Friction Indonesia, both said that initially they had reservations about UD Trucks Questers being a new product in Indonesia and this was aggravated by a paradigm that says a new product usually has issues regarding spare-parts availability. In addition to that, the truck’s proven performance was yet to be found. Business in mining sector demands a truck working with high productivity coming from reliability and availability of its spare parts.
A user of UD Trucks Quester in Indonesia, PT Sinsumo Friction Indonesia finally decided to choose UD Trucks Quester because of its superiority and after-sale service better known as UT Guaranteed Product Support (UT GPS). With UT’s after-sale service, the company has been running and growing with UD Trucks just in line with the trucks motto, “Going the Extra Mile”.
“Though in the beginning we faced operational obstacles, United Tractors and I as UD Trucks Quester user have worked together to find solutions to operate the truck at the highest utility level. United Tractors has also been demonstrating faster and better jobs in supplying genuine spare parts. United Tractors’ improvement as UD Trucks Quester distributor has been significant and this has helped my business operations,” said Beni.
Besides that, Andi added, there are three superior qualities UD Trucks Quester possesses that are immediately felt: low fuel consumption, reliable engine, and solid chassis.
Low fuel consumption
A UD Trucks Quester truck runs on lower fuel consumption compared to other Japanese trucks in its class that the company previously used. Fuel consumption is low against the load being carried (liter/ton) per kilometer at the low rpm. The driver can optimize gear shifting and acceleration at rpm with the most efficient fuel consumption.
The truck simply eliminates any doubt since it is a combination of superiorities of Volvo Group as principal in Europe and DNA truck of Japan. UD Trucks Quester engine is really of high durability.
Solid chassis and strong axle and components with ideal dimension. The truck can take on the heaviest conditions with its steel chassis of excellent pull strength which makes it suitable for uneven road conditions.
“So far, UD Trucks Quester has given what my company needs. It comes with affordable price combined with fuel efficiency and reliable durability. This truck will be cutting down on fuel costs and maximizing operational time so I will manage to reap the profit. And what the most important is the after-sale service United Tractors is providing as distributor,” says Beni at the conclusion of the conversation with UT Updates.
