Volvo Trucks details multi-faceted approach to maximizing vehicle uptime

Continued focus on innovative technologies, industry-leading services and ongoing efficiency improvements throughout the Volvo dealer network.

Uptime Protection Plan bundles together the Ride Assured pre-purchased preventative maintenance with extended warranty coverage to offer comprehensive service plans. Ride Assured can be financed with a new truck purchase.

Volvo Trucks in North America has entered into memorandums of agreement with both Telogis and Trimble to develop future fleet management services.  Both companies are industry leading providers of onboard fleet management and location intelligence services. 

As the first OEM to enter a collaborative business relationship with the industry's leading fleet management service providers, Roy said Volvo will offer customers increased flexibility as they optimize the performance of their fleets using the Telogis platform and Trimble, owner of PeopleNet, range of applications.

The agreements with Telogis and Trimble strengthen Volvo's Connected Vehicle Services category of  Volvo Trucks Support Services, he added. As a one-stop shop for service, parts and operations information, Volvo Trucks Support Services focuses on delivery of best-in-class fleet management solutions.

Ongoing Volvo dealer investments continue to improve the efficiency of Volvo's dealer network. Work capacity throughout Volvo Trucks' North American dealer network has grown by 20 percent since January 2010.

During the same time, available parts inventory has increased 60 percent while the number of Volvo master technicians has increased 10 percent.
