The IVECO 682 heavy range trucks are being delivered to Pertamina Drilling Services Indonesia (PDSI), Mundu District, West Jawa Province.
IVECO, a global leader in on- and off-road transport, and its official distributor in Indonesia PT Chakra Jawara, delivered the first 20 units of an order for 44 IVECO 682 heavy-duty trucks. Pertamina Drilling Services Indonesia (PDSI) awarded IVECO the tender for the supply of the IVECO 682 Tractors in 6X4 configuration with a 380 HP engine, which will be used to transport equipment for drilling operations at PDSI field locations in Indonesia.
The first 20 units were handed over to PDSI in Mundu District at a ceremony attended by representatives of IVECO, PT Chakra Jwara and PDSI, who included Mr. Bayu Adi Samudra, Operations Manager of PDSI; Mr. Rudhi Wibawa, General Manager of Sales and Marketing of Chakra Jawara, and Mr. Rama Widodo, IVECO Business Manager for Indonesia. The remaining 24 units of IVECO 682 trucks are scheduled to be delivered in April 2020 to support existing operations.
Mr. Rama Widodo commented: “The IVECO 682 that we are presenting today combines IVECO’s European technology, know-how and manufacturing experience to offer our customers the optimal solution in strength, low fuel consumption and quality at a very competitive price. We are confident that PDSI will appreciate the truck for its proven quality, durability, reliability and, most importantly, the cost-efficiency that are the hallmarks of our products.”
Mr. Rudhi Wibawa added: “These units will be in operation in several PDSI sites in Indonesia and we at Chakra Jawara are committed to supporting them, always ensuring the highest levels of service through the continuous improvement of our after sales activities, focusing on spare parts availability and the readiness of our mechanics in all of our networks in Indonesia.”
Mr. Bayu Adi Samudra concluded: “IVECO is not a new brand for us at PDSI: we already have 12 IVECO trucks – a combination of Trakker and Astra – in our fleet, which have been in operation for more than five years in special missions of heavy haulage. For us, the key message is IVECO and Chakra Jawara know how important it is to focus on after sales to keep the uptime of these new trucks.”
