Packaging Instruction

To find a packaging instruction please check in PackIT (see applications in the top menu) for the part packaging instruction. See detailed instruction in the PackIT FAQ section, also under applications.

If you have not received packing instructions for a part, you should pack the part in a suitable way until you receive instructions from Scania.

Change of packaging

Scania reserves the right to freely change packaging materials within Scania’s structure of return packaging materials. Such changes will have no effect on the agreed part prices.

It is very important that parts are packed in accordance with our instructions!

3. Packaging Instruction

There can be multiple packaging instructions for one part. This is due to differences in volumes or distances for the different plants. As an example, Scania Latin America often requires more corrosion protection when shipping from Europe. Another example would be Scania Spare Parts that requires branded Scania packaging for the spare parts that Scania sells.

4. Stores

The stores address at SCANIA is stated in the call-offs from Scania. It is very important that this address is stated on the Goods Label.
