Securing our costumers' future through here and now solutions
A three-pillar approach
Scania’s approach to sustainable transport rests on three pillars that aim to optimise the transport system on different levels: energy efficiency (“optimising the vehicle and driving”), renewable fuels and electrification (“optimising the energy”), and smart and safe transport (“optimising the transport system”). Individually or together, and when combined with our unique flow thinking, these three pillars can help make our transport systems cleaner, safer and more efficient.
This seamless integration between vehicle technology and optimised transport flows is the basis of our solutions. In doing so, we are able to deliver enhanced profitability while driving the shift towards a more viable transport system.
While the pillars are designed to solve our customers’ sustainability challenges in the short term, they also help future-proof their operations. Connectivity will be one of the key enablers of autonomous transport for example, our focus on energy efficient powertrains is equally valid for fully electric powertrains. In this way the solutions we provide today are laying the foundations for the autonomous, connected and electrified transport systems of tomorrow.
By driving the adoption of sustainable solutions that are available here and now, Scania is future-proofing our customers’ operations while enhancing their profitability.
To keep in line with the level of decarbonisation necessary to avoid the worst impacts of global warming, commercial transport must become fossil-free no later than 2050. This goal is achievable, but it is a significant challenge that will require immediate and rapid changes across the sector. To prepare for the shift ahead, players across the ecosystem of transport and logistics must begin future-proofing their businesses today.
The zero carbon transport system of the future will rely increasingly on new technologies such as different forms of electrification. Due to current limitations in technology and infrastructure, it will take time for these solutions to become viable and available at large scale – particularly for the long-haul heavy goods transport sector, where battery size and performance continues to be a challenge. However, there are many steps that businesses can take today to begin adapting their operations to prepare for the future. By adopting solutions that are available here and now, business can not only make their operations more efficient and profitable, but also reduce their carbon footprint.
Solutions for every situation
Scania’s here and now solutions differ in functionality and optimisation depending on the flow – in and between cities, in industries or in long-distance logistics. No matter the situation, our vehicle and service offering can be tailored to meet the specific demands of our customers.
Offering the most efficient technology for our products combined with services is core for Scania. We focus on three aspects to provide customers with energy-efficient products and solutions: powertrain performance, vehicle optimisation and fuel consumption.
Renewable FUELS AND ELECTRIFICATION
Renewable fuels and electrification are solutions that can be applied separately or combined. Scania provides the largest variety of engines for alternatives to fossile fuels on the market. We also focus our efforts on electrification technologies for both vehicles and infrastructure.
SMART AND SAFE TRANSPORT
Connectivity is a key enabler, allowing more efficient logistical flows and greater filling rates. Safety aspects can also be significantly enhanced by digitalisation and automation, when applied in driver assistance technologies for instance.
