Scania has been named OEM of the Year 2017 at the TU-Automotive awards in Detroit.

Scania was selected based on their impressive culture and attitude towards opening up gated walls within the industry. The judges say they appreciated the innovative way of thinking Scania shows, and they also highlighted Scania‘s interesting usage for telematics.

“Scania has a strong commitment to developing and commercialising innovative connected solutions,” says Mattias Lundholm, vice Ppresident, connected services and solutions at Scania.

“We were the first in our industry to embed connectivity as a standard feature. Connected solutions have thereby been an integral part of our customer offering for many years. We can now effectively assist our customers in digitalising their businesses. Digitalisation and connectivity are fundamental in driving the shift towards sustainable transport.”

TU-Automotive conferences and exhibitions gather those at the forefront of connected vehicle innovation, technology and business. Prizes are awarded to established and emerging companies in 10 different categories, with OEM of the Year being the most coveted award.
