Scania views every vehicle as a production unit. The better suited it is to its unique duties and the more supported it is by tailor-made services, the bigger the customer’s potential to get a return on its investment. This embodies our core value of putting the customer first.
Services are integral to Scania’s offering. Inspired by the product modularisation concept, we tailor services to meet each customer’s needs. Quick access to parts, speedy repairs, driver coaching and tailor-made maintenance plans are among the services Scania offers to enhance the vehicles’ performance and the customers’ profitability.
Scania’s repair and maintenance services make sure the vehicles stay in top condition, from the superstructure and trailer to the body and parts. With comprehensive maintenance plans, accident repair and vehicle-related services, its aim is maximum uptime for the customer.
One example is Scania Maintenance with Flexible Plans, by which the customer’s vehicles are called in for service when the operating data indicate that maintenance is needed, rather than based on set mileage. Thus the vehicle receives the maintenance it needs and, in most cases, spends less time in the workshop.
Scania has an extensive network of around 1,700 workshops. Around 20,000 people work with sales and services in Scania’s subsidiaries worldwide. Our service workshops are strategically located along transport routes and near logistics centres to enable high uptime for the customer. Scania’s global logistics network ensures that all Scania parts are available for rapid delivery.
