Deminor invites those who purchased or leased medium (between 6 to 16 tons) and heavy trucks (weighing over 16 tons) to join a group action aimed at seeking a recovery of losses suffered as a result of an illicit cartel between several truck producers.

On 19 July 2016, the European Commission announced that it had found that MAN, Volvo/Renault, Daimler, Iveco, and DAF had broken EU antitrust rules. Those truck producers colluded for 14 years, from 1997 to 2011, on truck pricing and on passing on the costs of compliance with stricter emission rules. They acknowledged their involvement in the cartel and agreed to settle the case with the European Commission.

The Commission imposed a record fine of EUR 2.93 billion. Proceedings were also opened by the Commission with regard to Scania, but Scania was not covered by the settlement and so the investigation was continued for this company. This finally led to a decision of the European Commission of 27 September 2017 to impose a fine of more than EUR 880 million on Scania for its participation in the trucks cartel.

Deminor proposes to companies that purchased or leased medium and/or heavy trucks from those truck producers between 1997 and 2011 to defend their interests and to seek recovery for the losses they suffered as a result of the illicit cartel. The European Commission explicitly stated in its press release that any person or firm affected by anti-competitive behaviour as described in this case may bring the matter before the courts of the Member States and seek damages.
