Scania Responds To Coronavirus Pandemic By Following Health Guidelines, Keeping Workshops Open

Scania is reassuring customers that it is taking all necessary precautions to keep its workshops open while safely offering regular service to truck drivers during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. The company believes that keeping the transportation industry running “is essential to ensure deliveries of necessary goods,” including food and medical supplies.

In order to continue providing service, Scania technicians are following social distancing protocols and wearing gloves and masks. They also place keys in a plastic bag and disinfect them and cover the interior of the truck, including seats, steering wheels, and the dashboard, in plastic to reduce contact as much as possible.

Important Steps

Scania is also taking important measures to protect drivers when they get back behind the wheel after service, because preventing the spread of the virus is a two-way street. For example, the manufacturer’s Danish workshops disinfect the “steering wheel, gearshift, handbrake, dashboard, seat belts, door handles, and keys before returning vehicles to drivers,” Scania says. “Our customers know that they can always rely on their partners and friends at Scania,” adds Stjepan Hasanović, Scania’s Croatian service manager. “We are in these awful times together, just as we’ve been in so many good times.”
