Scania Gets British Order for 500 Trucks

Swedish truckmaker Scania said Wednesday it won an order for 500 trucks from British trucking company Eddie Stobart.

Financial details were not disclosed. Scania said deliveries will begin in March.

Scania has been embroiled in a fight to stave off a hostile takeover attempt by German rival MAN, but MAN said Tuesday it was dropping its 10.3 billion euros ($13.3 billion) bid in favor of friendly talks about a possible linkup.
