INTERVIEWTEXT: CONNY HETTING PHOTO: DAN BOMANThe advantages of having such a strong partner as Scania will thus become more evident every day. Mats Harborn, Executive Director, Scania China Strategic CentreHow does Scanias position in China look today?We have ten successful years behind us during which we have built up a strong position among the more advanced Western transport companies in the country, based on organic growth. Scanias business model in the heavy truck segment works well in the Chinese market and we dont need to change our concept since the focus is increasingly shifting from purchase price to vehicle uptime and fuel efciency. This is where we differ from other Western vehicle manufacturers that instead concentrate on locally-adapted vehicles produced in collaboration with Chinese manufacturers. Scania conducts a very active dialogue with customers and decision-makers in China in order to modernise the countrys transport and logistics industry. What kind of feedback have you received?A milestone for Scania in China The newly constructed dealership facility in Guangzhou will play an important part in boosting Scanias presence in China. Mats Harborn, Executive Director of the Scania China Strategic Centre, now sees great opportunities as the countrys transport industry is modernised and consolidated. Scania China has grown rapidly in recent years. Its two large ofces in Beijing and Shanghai have now been supplemented by the new facility in Guangzhou, which is also the rst vehicle dealership to be wholly-owned by a Western manufacturer.www.scania.comEN03_intervju.indd 3For Scania China, this is a milestone and represents a fantastic opportunity to get even closer to our customers while gaining deeper knowledge about how the Chinese transport market operates, says Harborn. How does the companys own dealership in Guangzhou t into Scanias plans for China?We will use it to develop and help our noncaptive dealerships all over China to work according to Scania standards. Meanwhile, the facility will also serve as a home for Scania China. It houses a Pre-Delivery Centre where nal adaptation of vehicles is carried out for each customer as well as a training centre, which aims to supply Scanias service network in China with professional service technicians all aimed at supporting Scanias continued growth in China.Our strategy is gaining respect among the Chinese authorities. They are fully aware that high transport and logistics costs point to an inefcient transport system, which is hurting the growth potential of the Chinese economy. In China, transport and logistics costs total about 18 percent of overall GDP. Reducing this gure by one percentage point would save USD 73 billion. Pressure for a more efcient logistics system is also coming from multinational companies that have established production in China. They have higher logistics demands when it comes to uptime, fuel efciency and environmental impact. How can Scania benet from improving the efciency of Chinas transport services?In general cargo, there are now 800,000 transport companies, with an average of 1.7 trucks each. So the market is very fragmented and characterised by limited knowledge about transport and logistics. Companies often have poor protability. We can thus expect substantial consolidation; some analysts are talking about a reduction to 80,000 transport companies. In order to survive, you have to be better than the others and have higher protability. The advantages of having such a strong partner as Scania will thus become more evident every day.Q3/2013 SCANIA VALUE 32013-10-28 09:27:47 4. FOCUS: INNOVATIONWe can test again and again under exactly the same conditions until we have the answers we need. Lars Hult, Project Manager for Scanias climatic wind tunnelFrom Siberian ice to Saharan heat Here is Scanias latest investment in innovation. Vehicles are tested in the new climatic wind tunnel to ensure they can cope with extreme weather conditions in future markets. An arctic storm is raging on top of The Mountain, as the Scania Technical Centre in Sdertlje, Sweden is familiarly known. But sub-zero temperatures (-35 degrees Celsius) can swiftly shift into a hot desert storm. All possible climatic and weather conditions can be simulated in Scanias climatic wind tunnel. After years of intensive engineering work, the SEK 400 million investment is now ready to challenge each test vehicle with extreme weather conditions. Now that Scania is planning for growth in markets such as China, India, Indonesia and Africa, the climatic wind tunnel is an important tool for developing vehicles and services adapted for special customer needs and local conditions.4 SCANIA VALUE Q3/2013EN04-5_tema.indd 4This is the rst climatic wind tunnel in Europe adapted for full-size trucks and buses and probably the only one in the world, says Project Manager Lars Hult. This offers several advantages: Winter tests can be carried out in the middle of summer without needing to transport prototypes to a location with the right climate. The company also avoids having to rely on unpredictable natural weather conditions.Shorter lead times The facility will play an important part in optimising future vehicles when it comes to fuel efciency, improved uptime as well as lower noise and emissions. These parameters can be measured and analysed in widely differing climatic conditions. Comprehensive tests will mean even higher quality. Lead times for development of new products can also be shortened. Repeatability is a great benet, says Hult. We can test again and again under exactly the same conditions until we have the answers we need. This isnt possible in reality.Another advantage is that the company can conduct vehicle tests which focus on various types of applications. It is important for Scania to test the performance not only of the chassis but also of different superstructures, such as tipper trucks for construction and mining operations, concrete mixers and timber trucks. Fully-built buses are another area where testing possibilities were previously limited to eld tests. Each test run in the tunnel takes at least a day and up to a week to complete. Next to the test cell is a large hall where the vehicle is prepared before being driven in. Once inside the test cell, it is parked on rollers one for each set of wheels, enabling simulation of speeds of up 100 km/h, the maximum for many trucks and buses. At the front end of the cell is a huge air nozzle, with a surface area of 13 square metres, from which air is forced over the vehicle. Snow or rain is also pumped through the nozzle when required.Developed in-house The software used to communicate with the vehicle in the tunnel was developed in-house,www.scania.com2013-10-28 09:27:30 5.

The comprehensive tests will mean even higher quality and shorter lead times.Looking towards 2030 Scanias Technology Road Map (TRM) describes the knowledge that the company will need over the next 20 years in order to ensure that the necessary competencies are in plac
