As an industry-leading provider of transport solutions – and a company with safety and environmental care as core values – Volvo Trucks North America is committed to helping find ways to meet the growing demand for freight transport in this country. We’ve developed this website to help foster a dialogue around the issues and possible solutions that need to be evaluated. These solutions must address fuel efficiency, freight productivity and traffic congestion in order to keep costs down for businesses and consumers. And they must be developed with careful consideration for the environment and for safety on our highways.
If we want to sustain our economy and way of life, holding to the status-quo is no longer an option. We must begin finding solutions today, to keep freight moving tomorrow.
