Petaling Jaya, 11 December 2023 – Censof Holdings Berhad (“Censof” or the “Group”), a technology holdings company specialising in financial management software solutions, has accepted a letter of acceptance from Road Transport Department Malaysia (“JPJ”) through its subsidiary, Century Software (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. worth RM9.5 million.
The project entails the back-end maintenance, verification and calibration services for 48 weighing instruments at JPJ’s enforcement stations for a tenure of 36 months, starting from 1 January 2024 to 31 December 2026.
These weighing instruments are utilised by JPJ to measure automobile loads particularly heavy vehicles to ensure compliance with the laws governing permitted weight limits gazetted by Ministry of Transport Malaysia.
“Traffic congestion has been increasing rapidly, especially since the easing of the Covid-19 related restrictions, partly due to overloaded heavy commercial vehicles entering the city centre during peak mornings and evening hours. These commercial vehicles with a laden weight exceeding 7,500 kg are generally prohibited from entering the city centre during peak hours. With this said, we are pleased to be awarded with the responsibility of configuring and maintaining the framework of JPJ’s weight instrument configurations to ensure that this ruling is abided by the operators and drivers transporting heavy goods. With today’s back-end digital technology capabilities, the evaluation and logging of vehicles during inspection will not only be streamlined but enhanced further for efficiency and accuracy. Censof is proud to be part of the safety enforcement of the roads here in Malaysia in light of the accidents and traffic congestions caused by heavy vehicles exceeding weight limits on the road,” said Ameer Shaik Mydin, group managing director of Censof.
