Volvo Truck Deliveries Jump 47 Percent in October

STOCKHOLM — Volvo’s truck deliveries jumped by 47 percent year-over-year for the month of October in North America.

North American Volvo-brand truck deliveries gained 34 percent year-over-year to 2,880, and Mack’s gained 83 percent to 1,931.

Yet despite the increase, year-to-date, North American deliveries are down nine percent from a year ago, at 40,632.

Worldwide, deliveries rose by 13 percent, with a 12 percent rise in Europe, three percent in Asia and a six percent drop in South America.

Volvo said it will reduce European production for the first quarter of 2014 due to lower demand.
