To maximise uptime, reduce operating costs and lower the total cost of ownership, we’ve developed technologies and services that monitor the truck, protect the driver and guarantee you’re on the road when you need to be – 100% of the time.
This clever technology lets the workshop see information about the engine, mileage and fuel consumption. Technicians can also see diagnostic trouble codes and monitor the status of crucial components (brake pads, clutch, battery etc). Monitoring this way reduces unplanned stops. It also means the workshop is fully prepared when you arrive, so you’re back on the road in the shortest possible time.
An unplanned stop in the middle of nowhere? Push the VAS On-Call button and you’ll be connected to an operator who speaks your language (the truck checks the nationality of the card in the digital tachograph). The operator knows your exact location, your chassis ID and can pass on any diagnostic trouble codes to the technician. Sit tight, help’s already on its way.
We’re obsessed with safety. It’s in our DNA. And it’s a principle consideration when we design any Volvo truck. The fewer accidents you have, the more time your truck (and the driver) is on the road. The Volvo FM’s innovative safety features protect the truck, the driver and other road users.
