Scania and Navistar to partner on heavy duty solutions

As the International Mining and Resources Conference IMARC comes to a close in Melbourne, Scania and Navistar have announced intentions to cooperate on vehicles and services for mining services.

According to a media release the parties plan on bringing a limited number of Scania heavy duty off-road trucks for trials by selected operators in the Canadian market by as early as 2020.

The commercial vehicle manufacturer at present has well over 10,000 heavy duty trucks in service to mining operations across the globe.

Utilising Navistar's dealer network and after sales, Scania aims to provide world-class customer support for its global customers in the mining sector and trucks for heavy haul, general goods transport, fuel delivery, water delivery and personnel transportation.

“Our trucks and services together with Navistar’s well-established international truck sales and service network have the potential to also make our cooperation a win-win for Canadian mining operators,” says Alexander Vlaskamp, Senior Vice President and Head of Trucks at Scania.

“Demand from the mining market is changing,” said Persio Lisboa, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at Navistar.

“Companies are exploring more sustainable solutions that improve worksite flexibility, increase uptime and reduce total operating costs. Working with Scania as a partner will help us rapidly achieve scale in addressing this unique market segment with comprehensive and powerful solutions,” he said.

The cooperation builds on the existing fruitful strategic alliance between TRATON SE and Navistar, which was initiated in 2016 and has been gradually developed since then.

Navistar International Corporation is a holding company whose subsidiaries and affiliates produce International brand commercial trucks, proprietary diesel engines, and IC Bus brand school and commercial buses.
