SAVANNAH, Ga. — Volvo has announced all new trucks with 2007 engines will include Volvo Link Sentry and Volvo Action Service as standard features.
Volvo Link is the companys two-way satellite communications system and Volvo Action Service is a 24/7 roadside assistance program. The combination provides peace of mind for drivers who will essentially have a Volvo technician with them at all times.
Volvo Link Sentry allows remote monitoring of the truck and allows the driver to be notified of problems before they occur. When roadside assistance is required, it will always be readily available thanks toe Volvo Action Service, the company announced.
“This system combines early warning of potential trouble with technical counsel and a round-the-clock customer support system,” said Scott Kress, senior vice-president, sales and marketing. “It has the added benefit of giving us a real-time status report on how our new engines are performing. It also gives drivers the reassurance to know that help is only a phone call – or satellite message – away, regardless of where they are or what time it is.”
Kress said the offering shows Volvo has full confidence in its 2007 truck and engine lineup.
“These two programs demonstrate our confidence in Volvos new family of engines and show our determination to deliver a premium level of support to customers,” Kress said. “Volvo’s advanced communications technology and dedicated customer support team will back up our customers wherever they are, and at any time of day.”
More information about Volvo Link Sentry and Volvo Action Service will be available in the November issue of Truck News.
