Daimler Truck results in Q1, 2024

Overall, Daimler Truck sold less trucks in Q1, 2024, than in Q1, 2023: 108,911 units against 125,172 units, reflecting the expected normalization of the truck market on a global scale. Furthermore, with €13.3 billion the Group’s revenue is on the same level as the previous year’s first quarter (Q1 2023: €13.2 billion). With a slight increase adjusted Group EBIT is on the same level as the previous year to €1.21 billion in the reporting period (Q1 2023: €1.16 billion). At €847 million, net profit increased compared to the prior-year quarter with €795 million.

“We had a positive start into 2024, delivering a robust profitability on lower sales volumes. Our first quarter results clearly demonstrate: While markets are getting back to normal, our company delivers stable EBIT and Return on Sales. While we are on track towards our financial targets for the full year, headwinds in Europe are increasing. Our global team is focused, determined and confident to achieve our 2024 targets”, stated Martin Daum, CEO of Daimler Truck.
