Scania and the South Korean equipment manufacturer, Doosan Infracore, have agreed to further deepen their cooperation where Scania is delivering engines for articulated dump trucks and large wheel loaders. From 2014 Scania will supply Tier4 final engines for Doosan Large Excavators intended for Europe and North America.
The company’s broad commitment to alternative fuels and sustainable development is now also becoming visible in the form of strong truck sales. In 2014 alone, Scania expects to deliver about 1,500 Euro 6 trucks in Europe that use one of the five engine models that can run on up to 100 percent biodiesel.
Norwegian public transport operators are increasingly choosing Scania as a supplier of buses and related services. Order bookings so far this year amount to 235 buses and coaches, which is an all-time-high. The success is due to a combination of comfortable and reliable buses, which can be operated using alternative fuels including hybrid drive, and services that guarantee low operating cost and high capacity utilisation of vehicles.
Scania’s service revenue increased by 11 percent to SEK 4.8 billion during the third quarter of 2014. Europe and Asia displayed the highest growth rate. The sharp increase in connected vehicles is paving the way for new service concepts that can reduce customer costs.
