Conti360° rolled out in Malaysia
Earlier this month, Continental’s Malaysian operation, Continental Tyre PJ Malaysia Sdn Bhd, announced the official local launch of the Conti360° Fleet Services tyre management system. Currently the programme is offered in ten Malaysian states – Kedah, Penang, Perak, Kelantan, Terengganu, Pahang, Selangor/Kuala Lumpur, Negeri Sembilan, Malacca and Johor – and Continental says it will expand Conti360° Fleet Services to the states of Sabah and Sarawak in the near future.
“Globalisation, expansion of business areas, also from a geographical viewpoint, along with company mergers and changing customer requirements make fleet services increasingly attractive,” commented Wee-Chung Sim, sales & marketing director Replacement Market – Malaysia. “The right choice of the ‘resource’ tyre and its controlled handling can make a substantial contribution to a company’s success.”
As in other markets, the Conti360° Fleet Services modules comprise of ContiFitmentService, ContiFleetCheck. ContiFleetReporting,ContiCasingManagement and ContiBreakdownService. Customers can put together a tailor-made service package that ideally meets their tyre management requirements. The retreading of casings is performed according to Continental’s premium retread process at the recently upgraded ContiTread plant in Petaling Jaya, and a breakdown service network is already in place. “A comprehensive network of over 50 selected partners is currently available all over West-Malaysia to provide assistance,” Wee-Chung Sim elaborated. “They are mostly located in urban areas and along all major transport routes so that they can quickly help customers both at their centres and with mobile services.”
