Scania – together with Russia-based commercial vehicle manufacturer GAZ Group – has received an order to deliver a total of 709 buses to the largest public transport operator in the Moscow region. Scania will deliver chassis modules and GAZ will be responsible for bodyworking. The order is one of Scania’s largest bus orders ever in Europe. 
 
“Developing and delivering buses for the Russian market in partnership with a well-known and respected domestic manufacturer such as GAZ Group has great value,” says Hans Tardell, Managing Director of Scania Russia. “Putting such a large number of buses into operation means that the Scania brand will receive wide exposure in Russia. Even more significant is the service potential that the deal provides for our workshops in the Moscow region.”
 
In close collaboration with Scania, GAZ Group has developed three different versions of its GOLAZ branded buses, two of which are for intercity service and one for occasional service. All models are built on chassis and powertrain components from Scania.
 
The buses will be delivered during 2013 to Mostransavto, which is the largest public transport operator in the Moscow region. The buses will be used for transport service in Sochi during the first quarter of 2014 and then be brought into service in Moscow.
 
Scania is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of trucks and buses for heavy transport applications, and of industrial and marine engines. Service-related products account for a growing proportion of the company’s operations, assuring Scania customers of cost-effective transport solutions and maximum uptime Scania also offers financial services. Employing some 37,500 people, the company operates in about 100 countries. Research and development activities are concentrated in Sweden, while production takes place in Europe and South America, with facilities for global interchange of both components and complete vehicles. In 2012, net sales totalled SEK 79.6 billion and net income amounted to SEK 6.6 billion.
