Total deliveries of trucks from the Volvo Group's three truck companies increased 14% through February this year, compared with the year-earlier period.
Deliveries from Mack rose 26%, while deliveries from Renault Trucks were up 6%. Deliveries from Volvo Trucks increased 18% during the period.
"Deliveries continued to develop strongly in February,” said Leif Johansson, CEO and President of the Volvo Group. “This applies mainly to North and South America as well as the Middle East, driven by a strong trend in Iran. We also note continued favorable order bookings in Europe and North America."
During the past 12 months, order bookings for the Group's truck operations were 13% higher compared with the preceding year. Orders were up 3% in Europe, while the increase in North America was 34%.
