The core values

The core values

Scania’s core values – Customer first, Respect for the individual and Quality – define our company culture and are basis for our business development and working methods. Closely linked, our core values guide our actions and create value for Scania’s stakeholders.


Understanding the customers’ business leads to solutions that enhance customer profitability by means of high earning capacity and low operating cost. The customer’s operations and resource efficiency are at the centre of the value chain: from research and development, sourcing and production to delivery and financing of vehicles, engines and services.


From drivers of vehicles to our employees on the production line, the individual stands at the centre in all that we do. We seek to capture the knowledge, experience and ambition of each individual to continuously improve and develop our working methods. Inspiration and new ideas emerging from our daily work lead to higher quality, efficiency and job satisfaction.


High-quality solutions are essential for customers’ profitability. Knowledge of the customers’ needs and requirements ensures that Scania´s products and services meet the highest demands. Deviations from targets and standards are used as a valuable source of continuous improvement. We seize every opportunity to eliminate waste and inefficiencies.
