OUR CORE VALUES

Our success is based on the core values – Customer first, Respect for the individual, Elimination of waste, Determination, Team Spirit and Integrity. They reflect our journey towards a more sustainable future and a role in the ecosystem, as well as our position within Volkswagen Truck & Bus. These values will continue to be integral to the way we run our company, building a global leadership in sustainable transport.

Customer first We are only successful when our customers are successful. By understanding our customers’ business, we provide tailored solutions that make them winners in a sustainable transport system. The customer’s operations and efficiency are at the centre of our value chain. From R&D, sourcing and production to sales, delivery and financing of vehicles, engines and services.

Respect for the individual The individual is at the heart of all we do. We capture the knowledge, experience and ambition of each individual to continuously improve the way we work. New ideas that arise during the working day lead to increases in quality, efficiency and job satisfaction.

Elimination of waste With a strong focus on continuous improvements throughout our entire organisation, we ensure safe and high quality output in all areas. Deviations from targets and standards help us to identify and eliminate waste. In everything we do, we strive to optimise our flow and resource efficiency while minimising our environmental footprint.

Determination We are dedicated all the way and motivated to reach beyond the next level. We take pride in meeting challenges with innovative solutions, and always learn from our experiences. Being aware of details, while fully understanding the bigger picture, generates value for us and our customers.

Team spirit To be number one in our industry, we are joining forces and work openly across borders, towards a common goal. We view differences and diversity as opportunities, and we challenge each other to become better. A shared sense of direction brings collective strength and a group belonging.

Integrity We recognise that we have a social responsibility and always strive to do the right things in the right way. We act in accordance with our culture, core values and principles. We follow all legal and compliance standards. Trust builds relationships with customers, business partners and society at large, making it one of our most important assets. We always keep our promises and are accountable for what we do.

TAILOR-MADE SOLUTIONS

Scania’s unique modular product system, developed over several decades, is one of our most important success factors. It is integral to our approach to flexibility and lies at the heart of our business model.
