The delivery increase was influenced by a larger number of working days in November in Europe compared with 1999 and an increased capacity in Volvo Trucks' industrial system in Europe. The delivery decrease in North America could not be fully compensated by the increase on the other markets, first of all Europe, and in total the deliveries from Volvo Trucks decreased by 3% up to November. The order intake decreased by 5%, primarily because of the downturn in North America.
