Scania - Truck ScaniaScania is a Swedish truck manufacturer. The German group Volkswagen Ag has held 70% of the voting rights of Scania and a little less than 50% of the capital since 2008.
Scania launched its first carrier on the market in 1902. In 1911, the Swedish brand joined forces with Vadis to form the "Scania Vadis" brand. In 1969, the Scania-Vadis group merged with the aircraft and car manufacturer Saab to form "Saab-Scania". The Scania company then became independent again in 1969.
The name of the brand Scania is modeled on that of the province of southern Sweden "Scania". The famous griffin, half-eagle, half-lion animal that represents Scania, is also the emblem of this region.
The main Scania forwarder series are the Scania P series designed for medium haul transport and distribution and the Scania G and Scania R series suitable for long haul transport and construction.
