Huge orders rolling in

Volvo-owned Mack Defense has received two major orders for 1,500 trucks from the Canadian Armed Forces. The deal is worth SKr 5 billion.

Communication director for Volvo Group Governmental Sales Grégoire Verdon, says, “One of the pillars in our strategy is to develop business in other parts of the world… Canada is an example that our strategy is giving results.”

This is first time Volvo has succeeded in selling a European truck to a defence customer in North America. “This is a good opportunity to show our group’s abilities,” says Grégoire Verdon.
