ScaniaAustria – The OEM will deliver 485 trucks over a three-year period ending in March 2017, for use by cities, organisations and operators such as ASFINAG. The agreement with public procurement organisation Bundesbeschaffungs (BBG) is worth €65m ($91m).

The order covers a variety of truck types including winter service vehicles, refuse trucks, and trucks equipped with cranes and dumper bodies.

According to Christian Teichmann, director for Scania Österreich, this is the largest in the company’s history and “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”.
