Scania: Scania to deliver 485 trucks to Austrian public sector

The Austrian public procurement organisation Bundesbeschaffungs GmbH
(BBG) and Scania Österreich have signed an agreement for the delivery
of up to 485 Scania Euro 6 trucks over the next three years. The
agreement is worth about EUR 65 million.

The trucks will be put into use by Austrian cities, communities and
other public organisations, including the Austrian motorway operator
ASFINAG. The vehicles will be delivered over a three-year period
ending in March 2017.

The order represents a breakthrough for Scania's municipal vehicles in
Austria. It covers a variety of truck types, including winter service
vehicles, refuse trucks, and trucks equipped with cranes and with
dumper bodies. The vehicles were evaluated according to criteria
which included price, emission levels and fuel-consumption, and
available technical solutions.

Christian Teichmann, Director for Scania Österreich, says, "The
framework agreement with BBG is the largest completed agreement in
the history of Scania Österreich. For Scania Österreich this business
is of particular importance as we met the complex technical
requirements put forward by BBG and offered a technical and business
solution, including well-proven Euro 6 technology, for a variety of
vehicle segments."

Vehicles of this type are typically operated by public authorities for
up to 18 years before being decommissioned. With 16 workshops across
Austria, Scania is well placed to supply ongoing service and
maintenance to the vehicles.

Scania is one of the world's leading manufacturers of trucks and buses
for heavy transport applications, and of industrial and marine
engines. Service-related products account for a growing proportion of
the company's operations, assuring Scania customers of cost-effective
transport solutions and maximum uptime Scania also offers financial
services. Employing some 41,000 people, the company operates in about
100 countries. Research and development activities are concentrated
in Sweden, while production takes place in Europe and South America,
with facilities for global interchange of both components and
complete vehicles. In 2013, net sales totalled SEK 86.8 billion and
net income amounted to SEK 6.2 billion. Scania press releases are
