Following the launch of its three new state-of-the-art models in January of this year, Volvo Trucks Middle East has optimised its transport solutions around the new models to provide regional customers with the best the market has to offer in terms of care packages that help increase productivity and truck efficiency.

Ian Drury, Transport Solutions Development Manager, Volvo Trucks Middle East, said: "Volvo Trucks' aim is to become the world leader in sustainable transport solutions, so its total transport solution offer goes hand in hand with the brand's vision. Each one of our customers is unique, and we strive to create the most suitable solutions for their specific needs. Our service and maintenance contracts can be tailor-made to meet specific customer requirements, according to their business, application and usage.

"We are one of the world's largest heavy-duty truck brands and we use our global resources to ensure that customers in the Middle East reap the benefits of our global expertise. Volvo Trucks operates across 2,300 dealers and workshops, in 140 countries, with 17,000 dedicated Volvo Trucks employees, on five continents; this gives us the scope to provide the best of the best when it comes to transport solutions."

With demands in the maturing Middle East industrial manufacturing and transport market intensifying, business owners are becoming increasingly aware of the total cost of ownership for their businesses, and are seeking ways to maximise utilisation of their products to ensure the best possible value for money.

The transport solutions offered by Volvo Trucks Middle East, includes a mix of pioneering the very latest product technology whilst enhancing customer's productivity, allowing them to increase uptime and optimise service and maintenance for the duty cycle.

Drury, continued: "Our regional customers benefit from service agreements which give them peace of mind and allows them to have a clear and transparent visibility on the total cost of ownership when it comes to service and parts".While running their day-to-day businesses, they want to avoid any uplanned stops, retain a high resale value, and be able to rely on quick and efficient service.

"Volvo Trucks has also developed the Dynafleet telematic system. This web based system allows our customers to track their vehicle's position 24hours a day, 365 days of the year, while also monitoring the driver, his driving patterns and habits, and offer coaching and training when needed. The Dynafleet system allows business owners to pin-point areas challenging profitability while ensuring that their drivers operate in the safest and most efficient possible conditions.

"Via our Dynafleet system, also available as a free application for smart phones, customers can reduce wear and tear whilst increasing safety, and maintaining profitability and fuel efficiency essential for a successful business. This system in now operational in several markets within the Middle East and more and more customers are seeing the added value of Dynafleet in their business."

The Dynafleet is part of a wider package that Volvo offers its customers. The complete offering includes i-shift technology, airflow package, driver training and Dynafleet. This package promises fuel savings of up to 7%, making Volvo trucks one of the most fuel efficient in the industry.

The new i-shift technology will help improve fuel efficiency from day one, replacing the manual gear stick. The driver training will in turn help drivers to utilize the new technology, while the training will also give guidance on other factors that reduce fuel consumption.

The airflow package alone offers the latest in aerodynamics - consisting of air deflectors on the roof and sides, as well as chassis skirts and side underrun protection - meaning a fuel saving potential of up to 5%.
