As part of its shift towards more sustainable transport solutions, Scania established Lots Group. 

 Scania already offers digital services to optimise and support customers‘ specific transport flows. With Lots Group, it is taking a further step that involves optimising flows throughout the logistics chain. 

 “We are convinced that the transport sector is on the verge of major change,” says Henrik Henriksson, president and CEO of Scania. “By combining the experience of Scania with haulage companies‘ local and sector knowledge, Lots Group can achieve a more efficient flow of raw materials.”

 Lots Group‘s first market was the forestry industry in Sweden, and it is now expanding its operations into Asia and South America, where there is great potential in the agricultural and mining industries. 

 “Digitisation makes it easier to identify bottlenecks in flows and analyse load capacity utilisation, waiting times, major variations in transport assignments and compliance with legislation. Unsustainable transport is neither good for the environment nor profitable for haulage companies, and we can see great opportunities in Asia and South America to work with customers on achieving more sustainable transport,” says Henriksson.
