Dreaming big and keeping promises

Perth, Australia: Dreaming big and keeping promises go hand in hand for Danny Matic. He drove his first Volvo truck back in 2002. Today, he is the proud owner of Matic Group of Companies and its modern fleet of 70 trucks. Setting the standard in bulk pressure tanker transport, the company delivers bulk cement & lime to many major construction projects all over Australia. It’s a demanding task, involving heavy loads, several trailers and long distances. For some, it comes naturally, especially when your fleet includes the Volvo FM 500 Globetrotter – a truck designed to keep promises
