Volvo Trucks Maximises Uptime for Haulage Firms

Online truck monitoring, more efficient workshop planning, and Volvo Action Service on Call: together they create a platform that allows Volvo Trucks to set the scene for maximum uptime.

The key to this achievement is the new electronic structure in the Volvo FH series. Using a communication unit known as the Telematics Gateway, the truck is remotely linked up via the GSM network. This allows the workshop to monitor the vehicle's condition from afar, keeping a watch on brake and clutch wear, as well as the condition of the battery and air drier filter.

Available material includes an edited package with and without narration, driving footage of the new truck as well as images and a press release.
