Opportunities in 2020: We are expecting a market revival in 2020. If the infrastructure projects that are being spoken about take off, this will be an opportunity for high productivity equipment such as ours to serve our customers. Our offerings cater to the niche markets such as heavy irrigation and heavy road construction. And, these segments have been least affected by the 2019 downturn. Speaking of heavy construction, the focus is on Greenfield road and irrigation projects.

Enhancing productivity: ‘Dynafleet’ is our telematics solution where the truck driving pattern is continuously monitored by the Dynafleet system, which helps in improving the driver competency and the truck operating conditions. This results in improved truck utilization, minimal idling hours and better fuel efficiency. In short, it helps improving the operational efficiency of the fleet. The Dynafleet hardware comes installed from the factory in all Volvo Trucks. Customers simply have to subscribe for the services that suit your needs and log on to the Dynafleet web portal to get started.

Skilled Driver: We are increasing a customer’s productivity through ‘Driver Training’. Having trained over 112,000+ drivers in the CV industry, ourdevelopment courses provide a mix of specialist know-how and practical skills to maximise the vehicle’s productivity.In a competitive transport industry, a skilled driver makes a real difference. That’s why Volvo Trucks offers a range of courses aimed at driver development. The courses are produced by Volvo Trucks’ competence development team and taught by instructors who are knowledgeable specialist, so that drivers maximize the vehicles potential. Benefits of the training include higher profitability due to higher productivity, reduced fuel consumption, improved working environment for drivers and less wear and tear on their vehicles.

Uptime: At Volvo we have put a little more behind delivering ‘Superior Uptime’ for our customers - a one-of-its-kind concept. The Volvo Uptime Center is a ‘Digital home for a more profitable transport operation’. We live in a world where billions of devices are able to communicate with each other, and trucks are no exception. In the digital world, a Volvo truck becomes a high-tech business partner that not only looks after itself with online software upgrades and analysis, but also maximises productivity on demand. Today Volvo Trucks uses connectivity to prevent unplanned stops and predict service intervals. In the future connectivity will bring with it even more innovations that will benefit autonomous transportation, safety and driver well-being. Welcome to the revolution.

Nobody knows exactly what the road ahead will bring, but Volvo Uptime Services helps you see it in the rear view mirror. Whether you’re hauling off-road or on-road, moving cargo or people, having a true transport solutions partner with you can make all the difference.

They trust us to keep our promises and always be there for them. The prioritisation and only doing what is really important. In our case, this means the things that create value for the customer, where availability, quality and cost effectiveness are decisive. Our success can be attributed to our technically superior trucks and extremely agile support system, the critical part is how we engage ourselves with our customers. We don’t work for customer satisfaction, rather we focus on customer success.
