The article reports on the 22% increase in total deliveries of trucks from Volvo's four truck companies in January 2008, excluding Nissan Diesel, which was not part of the Volvo Group in January 2007. A sluggish economy and the continued decrease in the U.S. housing market had an impact on the low level of current demand, the article notes. Asian market showed more deliveries of 47% compared to the 32% of Europe.
