Recording of opening speeches

Looking to the future, Daimler Truck has set itself clear ambitions: To fully exploit its profit potential and lead the industry in sustainable transportation. The business figures of the 2023 financial year show that important milestones have been achieved. As of last year, Daimler Truck offers ten zero-emission truck and bus models in series production worldwide. With the Mercedes-Benz eActros 600, the first battery-electric truck for long-distance transportation, the range of models available to customers will be expanded to a total of eleven by the end of this year.


The Supervisory Board is convinced that Daimler Truck is pursuing the right strategy to be successful even in a volatile environment and a challenging global situation. The entire team is focused on sustainably transforming the commercial vehicle industry and unlocking the company's full profit potential.

Against the background of the robust cash position and with the aim of further sustainably increasing the value of the company, a share buyback program was initiated in July last year. As part of this program, the company began buying back shares worth up to €2 billion in August 2023.


2023 was the best year in our company's history to date. All major key figures have moved in the same direction and that is significantly upwards. Our shareholders also participate in the company's success: today we propose paying a dividend of €1.90 per share. I am also pleased that it is becoming increasingly clear beyond the financial world what Daimler Truck is capable of and what potential this great company has.
