Recommended Posts

Press Release / June 13, 2014

Scania Top Team, Scania’s competition-like training program for its service technicians and parts experts, is about to begin. Some 8,000 participants from over 60 countries develop their skills by combining training and teamwork while competing. The resulting benefit for Scania customers is more effective service.

Scania Top Team is an award-winning competitive training program developed to continually enhance the skills, knowledge, professionalism and teamwork in Scania’s workshops all over the world. The competition also helps attract skilled professionals to the industry.

“The ultimate goal for Scania workshops worldwide is to provide services that support customers’ business,” says Christian Levin, Executive Vice President, Commercial Operations at Scania. “This in turn requires a highly proficient service staff. Scania Top Team is a fantastic way of celebrating the brains, technological skills and teamwork that characterise the people who work in the front line every day.”

True to Scania’s continuous improvement philosophy, Scania Top Team has developed from a national training event 25 years ago into today’s global training program.

This year’s is the ninth such event at an international level, and it is bigger than ever. More than 8,000 participants from over 60 countries will be trained in service-related theory and practice at Scania workshops worldwide.

The national rounds start up with theory assignments and finish off with a national final that includes both practice and theory.

The winners of the national rounds meet at five international regional rounds.

Of those, 10 teams will qualify for the world final at Scania’s corporate headquarters in Södertälje, Sweden, during 3–5 December 2015.

You're quite right in that Scania engines are superb.

With sales in over 100 countries around the world, Scania trucks come in many forms to meet both varying customer needs and country-unique homologation requirements.

When I look at today’s Scania heavy truck, I see a brilliant pairing of form and function that results in unrivaled performance and low cost of operation.

It is Scania’s ability to meet today’s challenges with the world’s most innovative heavy truck engineering that allows customers around the globe to maintain their competitive edge in this demanding business.


Most people today seeing a Mack MH Ultra-Liner for the first time probably wouldn’t find its aesthetics attractive. But to me, like the Scania, the Mack MH Ultra-Liner represented a stunning example of form and function. There’s no doubt in my mind that the Mack MH Ultra-Liner was the finest heavy COE ever designed by a U.S. truckmaker.

being of Swedish descent, using the term "Ugly" to describe a Scania is rather insulting, A true UGLY swede is the Vulva brand. Scania is & always has been one f the best looking & best engineered heavy trucks in the world.
