March 7 (Bloomberg) -- MAN SE, a German truckmaker controlled by Volkswagen AG, will adopt a “platform,” or modular, strategy for trucks similar to the way VW builds passenger cars, the Financial Times Deutschland reported, citing unidentified people close to the company.

The strategy is aimed at getting a head start over Scania AB, which may cooperate more closely with MAN once Leif Oestling, its chief executive officer, retires in 2015, the newspaper said.
