As a result of increased demand on some markets in Europe, which was announced in the Volvo Group s report for the fourth quarter of 2012, the production will be increased during the spring of 2013.
In Ume , about 90 people will be offered jobs. The increase in demand is due to a more optimistic view of the economic development among truck customers in these markets, combined with a pent-up need to renew truck fleets.
However, there is still uncertainty about the economic development of other regions, particularly in southern Europe. Where demand remains weak.
- We are delighted to see an increase in sales of our products in Europe, while it feels good to be able to offer new jobs in Ume , especially now that we have launched the world s best truck, says Mona Edstr m Frohm, site manager at Volvo s Truck plant in Ume .

Qualcomm Inc., San Diego, said the unit that includes its in-cab wireless communications devices lost $3 million before taxes in its fiscal first quarter ended Dec. 30.
The Qualcomm Enterprise Solutions unit that serves the trucking industry is part of Qualcomm s QWI, or wireless and Internet group, whose results swung to the loss from a profit before taxes of $1 million in the prior year period.
A revenue decline to $146 million from $152 million was primarily due to lower sales at the QES unit, Qualcomm said in a regulatory filing.
A 24-year-old man whose hoax ANZ media release saw $314 million be wiped from the value of Whitehaven Coal has refused to say whether he employed dirty tactics in his anti-coal campaign.
Yesterday, Jonathon Moylan issues a press release purportedly from the ANZ, suggesting the bank had cancelled a $1.2 billion loan awarded to Whitehaven in December a loan which would see the mining group build a new mine near Narrbri in New South Wales.
Speaking with Nick McCallum, Mr Moylan said he was surprised the release was taken seriously by journalists and investors alike.
“We were basically putting out the media release that ANZ should have sent themselves,” he said.
“A lot of ANZ customers now know where their money is being invested and their rights to know that is right out there in the open.”
Mr Moylan refused to answer Nick McCallum s question: So (you have) no regrets, because it s okay to fight what you consider a dirty project with dirty tactics?
“At the end of the day, I’m more interested in the public good and of the well-being of the people in this community, and of the future of the planet,” Mr Moylan said.

It s going to get tougher to win over the next wave of EV adopters, a new consumer survey report suggest, as these hard-to-please customers don t want to compromise in order to go electric.
After a first wave of early adopters took to electric driving because it liberated them from the effects of volatile oil prices, a second wave will be more demanding of electric cars, according to the Electric Vehicle Information Exchange (EVIX), as revealed in its new Electric Vehicle Survey Panel report.
These buyers will not be willing to make sacrifices just for the sake of driving electric and want EVs that compete with gasoline counterparts on price, performance and quality.
EVIX s survey consisted of some 980 US citizens, the majority with some level of interest in EVs including one group made up of people currently owning or leasing an electric vehicle and another consisting of those considering an EV for their next car. A third group consisted of motorists with no interest in EVs.
Average EV driver is a wealthy male
Looking just at current EV drivers, EVIX discovered that these motorists are predominately male, white, well-educated and high earners, typically in their early 50s. They also tended to be homeowners, with access to garage facilities for home charging.
These early adopters reported that energy independence, and not environmental anxiety, was their main reason for going electric. This motive also prompted a third of the group to investigate home solar/wind generation to further promote their independence.
The group with an interest in EVs, was made up of a more diverse selection of motorists, but still predominantly male. This group was a little younger too, averaging mid 40s but still mostly middle-class, homeowners with access to a garage and drove an average of 25 miles per day each.
This interested group expressed a greater interest in plug-in hybrids than the EV owner/driver group, although about three quarters still said they would still preferred a full battery electric car.
It was also found that this group, more than the current owner group and the not-interested group, were currently shopping for a new car. Over two-thirds claimed they were looking to buy or lease a new car sometime in the next three years.
So what will it take to turn them from the just interested to EV driver? EVIX suggests that electric cars will need a minimum range of 150 miles per charge and suitable for use as a primary vehicle.
The not-interested group averaged in their mid 30s, and were less likely to live somewhere conducive to charging. They also drove less, averaging fewer than 20 miles per day.

MOORESVILLE, N.C. While there are two races left in the NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) season, there is still hope amongst the No. 54 Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM) team members that a victory with team owner-driver Kyle Busch is eminent. The first year results for this young team have included two pole-qualifying positions and one early win, with fellow Monster Energy driver Kurt Busch, but the season hasn t been without its ups and downs. Needless to say, the group has been challenged, and in many ways that has made the team seasoned with tests such as on-track incidents, mechanical failures and being on the wrong end of races decided by fuel mileage. To overcome those hurdles and to be contending for wins on a weekly basis is what drives this team to earn victory for themselves, for their sponsor and for their team leader.
In 31 starts over its first year together, the KBM Nationwide Series Monster Energy group has accumulated one win, two pole positions, 392 laps led,13 top-five finishes, 20 top-10 finishes and sits eighth in the owner s points standings. KBM has led laps in each of the last three events and last week earned their second career pole, so while time may be winding down, momentum for the No. 54 Nationwide crew is gearing up. Couple that with a driver who at Phoenix (Ariz.) International Raceway (PIR) has victories in all three of NASCAR s top racing series, comprised of four wins and four poles in the Nationwide Series, including a race sweep in 2011 where Busch led every event lap, and you have a recipe for success.
The 27-year-old is recorded as the highest All-Time performing driver at PIR in the NNS with an average start of 6.1 and 793 laps led. This week Busch and his first-year team look to improve their career stats, by adding one more W to the column, and finishing out a long season that has challenged them to grow.
Kyle Busch, Driver of the No. 54 NASCAR Nationwide Series Monster Energy Camry:
Going into the spring race at PIR you talked about the new KBM team and how it can be unsettling pulling a new crew together and starting from scratch. Now when you return to Phoenix with almost a full season behind you, how do you feel about the first- year team you ve created? I m proud of the way this team has worked hard, to build competitive cars that put us up against the big teams, in contention for wins. We ve been in position several times this year, but have encountered challenges too. I realize now, the equipment is very important and a big key to a team s weekly success. It takes time to develop and mold all the pieces of a race team, including the people. It s a lot harder than you think to build a race team from scratch, and when I sit back and review what we ve been able to accomplish this year, I think no other start-up can compare to what we ve done.
Mike Beam, Crew Chief of the No. 54 NASCAR Nationwide Series Monster Energy Camry:
Are you looking forward to returning to Phoenix with Kyle? We have to keep our heads down and keep digging. The first Phoenix race didn t give us the result we were looking for, but we ve made so many improvements to our program since that second week of the season. All the way around, this KBM Nationwide Series program is stronger now. The car we are taking has run well for us. Besides having a locked gear in Kentucky, we secured our first pole with it and earned a couple of top-10 finishes. As I say every week, if we limit our mistakes and stay focused, we can bring home the win that everybody wants for Kyle, for Monster Energy and for this team that has worked so hard.
Kyle Busch s No. 54 Monster Energy Camry:
Chassis KBM-011: KBM will unload car #011, raced as a new car at Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway, where team owner-driver Kyle Busch secured the first pole for KBM s Nationwide Series entry. Busch went on to earn a seventh-place finish in the car s debut. Chassis #011 then visited Kentucky Speedway in Sparta where Kurt Busch secured a top-15 starting spot, then unfortunately did not complete the race due to a locked rear gear, forcing the No. 54 into a 28th-place finish. Kyle Busch returned to the seat of car #011 for the second Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway event, where he secured a top-10 start and top-five finish, reaching the line fourth. The backup machine is Chassis KBM-003, raced five times this year with three top-five finishes recorded.
U.S. and European debt crises are paralyzing consumer demand for goods exported from China and putting downward pressure on some shipping rates, said Nils Andersen, chief executive of Danish shipping and oil group A.P. Moller-Maersk.
The shipping industry has a history of cutting rates to gain market share during hard times. But Maersk is not taking that route today, partly because its rates are not covering costs on the Asia-to-Europe traffic, Andersen said in an interview last week at Maersk Line s U.S. headquarters.
Andersen said industry rates are stable in most regions but slipping slightly from Asia to Europe. Maersk expects to hike rates, and aims to maintain rather than increase market share.
It may be a little new to industrial thinking, but we just can t afford to go into a price war because the general market is going down, he said.

Europe s Single Market should have lifted barriers on road haulage long ago, but there are still many national obstacles to trucks. The European Commission is aiming to tackle these roadblocks.
In 2012, it should be straight forward enough for shippers sending goods along Europe s roads from, say, Warsaw to Lisbon: trucks should be able to pick up their package from in the Polish capital and drive down the motorways through Germany, France and Spain all the way to Portugal. But it s not that easy.
While a simple trip from Warsaw to Lisbon is acceptable for any truck, wherever it is registered in the EU, that truck cannot pick up packages in Madrid and Paris along the way. The rules on cabotage – where hauliers from one EU state work within another state – limit hauliers to just three transport operations in the seven days following an unloaded international carriage. The rules, last updated in a 2009 EU Regulation, can force trucks to travel home or elsewhere with empty vehicles. Operating conditions vary from one EU member state to another. And there is often not enough available manpower in the sector.
All this impedes the European road haulage market, creating inefficiencies and preventing the single European transport market from truly coming into being 1]. Which is why the European Commission has taken steps to address the problem with new measures to open up the market to competition. A High Level Group mandated by the Commission Vice President Siim Kallas last year to look into the road haulage market unveiled its recommendations on June 21. It called for a gradual opening of domestic road transport markets as a key step towards completing the single European transport area.
Cabotage currently only accounts for 2% of all national hire and reward transport operations. But road freight transport is a big business in the EU, accounting for around 3 million jobs in about 600,000 enterprises. Road is also responsible for the lion s share of all transport: almost three quarters of all inland transport activities in the EU, generating 1.76 trillion tonne-kilometres in 2010, one third of which in international transport operations.
