Organization

Our various operations are organized to deliver the greatest possible focus on customers and their needs, and to exploit and harness the Group’s far-reaching and shared resources in the best possible way.

The Volvo Group comprise nine business areas: Volvo Trucks, UD Trucks & JVs, Renault Trucks, Mack Trucks, Volvo Construction Equipment, Volvo Buses, Volvo Penta, Arquus and Volvo Financial Services.

We also combine the best of two worlds: synergies by having global organizations for product development, manufacturing, and purchasing but still clear leadership and responsibility for each brand to make sure that customer needs are understood throughout the entire organization.

In this way the Group harnesses the full potential of its various brands while creating a clearer profile in its various customer segments.
