Scania Interim Report January–June 2014

Scania’s earnings for the first half of 2014 amounted to SEK 4,276 m. Higher service volume was offset by a weaker market mix and negative currency rate effects. Total order bookings for trucks during the second quarter were at a high level.

Record order bookings during the second quarter

Scania’s order bookings for trucks reached a record level of 20,987 units during the second quarter.
