Globally, 9,854 Volvo trucks were delivered in February, an increase of 45 percent compared with the same month last year.

North American deliveries of Mack branded trucks rose 43 percent in February. That figure represents 1,447 trucks compared to 1,036 the year before. Year-to-date, mack deliveries are up 48 percent in North America.
