New award for Scania in Brazil
At present, awards are raining down on Scania in Brazil. Last month, Scania was voted the truck industry’s ‘Most Admired Company’ by the leading business magazine Carta Capital, and the Brazilian haulage association, NTC, has now voted Scania the winner in its category of ‘Best heavy truck manufacturer’ for the fifth year in a row.
The NTC (Associação Nacional do Transporte de Cargas) award has gone to Scania for its proven leadership in the areas of quality, technology, service and pricing. The award was the result of a vote by all of the association’s member companies.
Just a few weeks earlier, Scania was voted ‘Most Admired Company’ by the leading Brazilian business magazine Carta Capital. In its verdict, the magazine referred particularly to Scania’s strong brand, innovativeness and spirit of corporate citizenship.
Commenting on the awards, Emanuel Queiroz, head of Scania’s marketing operations in the Brazilian market said: "These awards are an acknowledgement of the 45 years that Scania has been operating here in Brazil. The Scania name has become synonymous with the best truck on the market, both among people in the industry and among Brazilian corporate leaders in general."
Scania has built and sold 170,000 trucks and buses in Latin America – most of them in Brazil – since 1957. About 110,000 of these are still in service.
Scania’s production plants in São Paulo, Brazil, Tucumán, Argentina and San Luis Potosí, Mexico are part of the company’s global production network, and also supply vehicles and components to the European, African and Asian markets.
