In 2021, the TRATON GROUP reached key milestones in its Global Champion Strategy and gained access to the important North American market. This was made possible by the successful merger with the US commercial vehicle manufacturer Navistar. Advancing climate change, the growing importance of sustainability, as well as decarbonization and digitalization mean that the challenges TRATON is facing today are completely different to those six years ago, as it began its journey as a newly formed independent entity. This does, however, also open up opportunities. The TRATON GROUP’s new strategic framework now seeks to address these opportunities. The cornerstones of the new “TRATON Way Forward” strategy were presented for the first time during the virtual Annual General Meeting of TRATON SE in 2021. As part of its new strategy, TRATON has committed to maintaining sustainable and responsible business operations at all times, irrespective of individual corporate decision.
