Swedish auto giant Volvo AB posted an operating loss of SEK 2.26 billion in the fourth quarter of 2014, compared with a profit of SEK 996 million the year before, the company said in a statement Thursday.

Volvo saw a plunge in construction-equipment deliveries, which fell by 33 percent. However, deliveries of trucks rose by 16 percent.

Volvo had previously announced cuts of around SEK 10 billion up until December this year.
