Scania to strengthen its worldwide offering.
“Scania in Australia has a very strong customer focus in everything they do. It is all about focusing on the customers’ cost and income,” said Henrik Henriksson, Scania Senior Vice President - Trucks, at a press lunch on 2 December in Sydney.
At the meeting, Henrik Henriksson presented to the Australian media the current and future status of the company and Scania’s plans for increased customer profitability in the near future.
Scania is in the process of joining forces with its global customers – from Europe and South America to Asia and Australia – to take earning capacity and profitability to new levels by extending and sharpening the total offering of vehicles and services beyond traditional boundaries; tailoring it precisely to each operator’s needs. In Australia, this is known as the Scania Total Transport Solution.
The Scania Total Transport Solution comprises offers such as Scania Truck Rental, Scania Fleet Management System, Scania Driver Training, Spare Parts Inventory Management and Preventative Maintenance programmes.
“Scania emerged from the latest economic downturn stronger than ever and is well prepared for a second one, should it occur,” said Henriksson, noting that the company has shown the type of financial strength and stability that made it possible to launch new products during the recession, such as the new Scania R-series, the new industrial engine range, and the Scania Touring coaches.
Scania’s offering comprises trucks, buses and engines; parts, repairs and maintenance; and services such as financing, insurance and driver training.
The company also has the widest range of engines in the world that run on commercially available renewable fuels such as biodiesel, biogas and ethanol, showing that sustainable transport is not just possible, it’s a reality now. These engines are part of Scania’s globally available product range that meets Euro 6 and Euro 5 emission standards.
“With these products and solutions, Scania is in a strong position to continue expanding in the global market,” Henriksson said.
