Accelerate the shift to sustainable transport
We are living through an era of radical and disruptive technological change. New tools and technologies have emerged that are transforming how we live and work. Some of these innovations are playing a key role in helping Scania, together with others across the transport ecosystem, accelerate the shift to sustainable transport.
Scania addresses the disruptive changes in the ecosystem of transport and logistics, and stimulates new innovations outside of our core business. To capture the market opportunities that will come from the future transport system, we must be ready to use all the tools at our disposal. That means embracing new ways of working, developing our skills and knowledge and adopting an entrepreneurial mindset.

Autonomous transport solutions
Scania’s Autonomous transport solutions is an important contribution to the transition towards safer, more efficient, and sustainable transport. The demand for autonomous solutions is increasing, and their commercialisation is expected within the next few years. With new legislative and technological advances, it is expected to have a substantial impact on the industry.
In close cooperation with our customers and leading technology suppliers Scania is continuously developing autonomous transport solutions with particular focus on the mining and Hub-to-Hub segment.
Autonomous hub-to-hub on highways
The application of autonomous technology for autonomous hub-to-hub transport is steadily gaining pace. With the permission of the Swedish transport authority, Scania is trialling autonomous trucks in open-road conditions in Sweden. The customer advantages are clear, as the use of autonomous hub-to-hub truck solutions can provide significant benefits for logistics companies, resulting in greater efficiency, lower costs, improved safety and tracking, and reduced environmental impact.
Autonomous mining solutions
The benefits of utilising Scania’s autonomous mining solutions are potential cost savings, increased productivity, improved safety, and reduced environmental impact. Our trucks have several potential advantages over traditional heavy haulage trucks, both in terms of emissions and productivity. A smaller truck solution means faster operations with less waste.
Accelerate with partnerships
Together with leading technology suppliers, Scania is driving the development of autonomous transport solutions. Today, Scania is partnering with Rio Tinto to develop the live application of autonomous mining trucks.
