The increase was influenced by the fact that January this year both in Europe and North America had more working days than the same month last year. As a result of a continued weak demand in North America, the production capacity has been further reduced at Volvo Trucks North America and 400 people have been notified about redundancy. The order intake decreased by 10% compared with last year.
