Value creation along the value chain

Value creation along the value chain

Long-term profitable development in Scania entails accomplishing better economic value creation while, in parallel, having a positive impact on society, thus creating shared value. By partnering with our customers and other stakeholders, and applying our knowledge and innovative solutions, Scania contributes to the transformation of transport systems and embeds greater efficiency throughout the value chain. Our biggest impact – positive and negative – occurs beyond Scania’s own operations; instead it is when Scania trucks and buses are on the road that our products and services create benefits for customers and society, and major environmental effects arise.

  1. Customer first
    Putting our customers first in all we do generates added value for all of our stakeholders and paves the way for a profitable and sustainable transport industry in the future.
  1. Research and Development
    With a high level of investments in R&D, Scania creates value for customers by meeting their demands for higher uptime and greater efficiency, and for society by supporting a safe and efficient transport system.
  2. Sourcing
    With rigorous environmental, ethical and social demands, we support businesses throughout our global supply chain that maintain fair conditions. In return, we benefit from higher supplier quality, productivity, and minimise negative impact during the lifecycles of our products.
  3. Production
    With a strong focus on continuous improvement, SPS helps eliminate waste, improve resource efficiency and optimise production flow, thereby reducing our environmental footprint.
  4. Sales
    With a global presence, we work together with our customer to ensure the vehicles are optimised for their specific transport assignment and to address their environmental impact. This sense of responsibility in sales is reflected in our principles and extends forward in the value chain.
  5. In use
    With logistics thinking we focus on how to make the system flow more efficient. By applying connectivity and focusing on lifecycle optimisation, we help customers improve operational efficiency, reduce noise, impacts and costs, and improve road safety and security.
  6. Services
    By continuously improving our global sales and services operations and working hand-in-hand with customers, we improve our ability to meet their sustainability goals, identify efficiencies and deliver high value-added services.
  7. End-of-life
    Scania’s ambition is to continuously reduce non-recyclable components and provide guidelines for end-of-life treatment and dismantling, in partnership with others, to minimise impact from our products’ lifecycle. Made mainly out of high recovery value materials like cast iron and steel, our trucks are 95 percent commercially recyclable
