“The year has started very well. The deliveries to Zoomlion alone mean that our sales volume during the first quarter of 2012 is at about as high as during the full year 2011,” says Peter Sjöblom, Managing Director of Scania’s Chinese sales company.
The partnership between Scania and Zoomlion is advancing smoothly. Scania’s truck chassis have been increasingly customised to facilitate and streamline Zoomlion’s work of fitting the trucks with equipment, i.e. superstructures. In close customer-supplier cooperation, Scania’s trucks have also been dimensioned to be able to carry and transport even longer concrete placing booms.
“Scania's strong position as a supplier of trucks to the premium segment for concrete pumps also represents a success for our entire organisation’s cross-functional working method,” says Mr Sjöblom.
