On Tuesday, Truck- and Construction Equipment maker AB Volvo said in a statement that it plans to cut its white-collar workforce by around 4,100 positions during the second half of 2020, citing the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“The corona epidemic and the global measures taken to fight it has led to a market situation impacting our industry severely,” Volvo CEO Martin Lundstedt said in a statement.

“The effects are expected to be lower demand going forward and we need to continue to adjust our organization accordingly.”

Volvo said around 15% of the expected reductions were consultants, adding that about 1,250 positions were expected to be cut in Sweden.

The Gothenburg-based company, which employs some 104,000 staff, said late in April that net order intake of its trucks had dropped by 75% in March versus February and been net negative since then.
