A prerequisite born from the often-harsh Swedish environment, quality has been at the very core of everything we do since day one. These days, it's found in the reliability and performance of trucks and services that allow you, and your business, to keep delivering.

Zero unplanned stops

Quality is a prerequisite for profit. By guaranteeing our trucks are available to work 100% of the time, we maximise uptime, productivity and help increase profit for our customers.

Measuring quality

Component test. Rig test. Durability test. Hot chambers. Cold chambers. Sun simulators. Nothing is left to chance. We test every single detail – again and again – to ensure every component meets the highest quality standard. Our standard.


Our latest test rig is the largest and most accurate of its kind in the world. And within a few weeks it can simulate the stresses and strains that a truck is subjected to throughout its entire life. And at our extensive proving ground in Hällered, we also design test programs that simulate every conceivable road surface a truck will encounter in its working life.

Quality’s built in

After the rigorous testing, our global manufacturing processes ensure every truck is meticulously assembled. We also spot test trucks through the production line to verify their quality before they leave the plant.

A genuine Volvo

When we service your truck, we only use Genuine Volvo Parts. Parts that are designed to our specifications. Rigorously tested. And manufactured to our uncompromising standards. The parts are then fitted by some of the most skilled mechanics in the world.

50 laps around the world

The test programme for our long distance trucks, which is run mostly on good roads, monitors every aspect of the truck on a 2 million kilometre test run. That’s 50 laps around the world.

Our construction trucks don’t spend their lives on smooth roads. So we take them on a tortuous journey that tests their endurance way beyond their operating conditions.

The world’s best technicians

Volvo service technicians are some of the best in the world. And to sharpen their skills, they compete in Vista, the world’s largest competition for aftermarket personnel.

Telematic technology

Our Telematic Gateway technology connects the truck to the workshop, providing live information about the trucks’ engine, mileage and fuel consumption. Technicians can also see diagnostic trouble codes and monitor the status of numerous components, like the brake pads, clutch, the battery and more.

Monitoring your truck 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.

Towards increased productivity

As we head into the future, society’s transport needs will increase. New levels of demand need to be met in a way which benefits our industry, our society and our planet. Optimised engines, new drivelines, new and improved safety features, renewable fuels, and forward-thinking infrastructure and services are being developed to help meet society’s many needs and provide new alternatives for the transport industry.

Our vision of the future is one in which our customers can increase their productivity in the face of transformation.And you can explore the initiatives and developments that help turn the vision into reality..
