Volvo Trucks has added an ergonomic workstation option for its VNL760, 740 and VNX 740 models, offering a flexible working environment for drivers while out on the road.
It features ergonomic advancements that allow drivers to enjoy the comforts of home while on the road. The workstation transforms from a sitting area and table for relaxing, eating and catching up on work, then lowers as a base for seating cushions that unfold into a bed. Additional enhancements include an angled table for easy seating; a 103-degree cushion seat angle to improve seating comfort; and connected cushions that can be easily secured to allow for adequate rest.
The workstation is designed to improve productivity, comfort and overall convenience for drivers in the cab and it is available for order as an upgrade. With various configuration possibilities, solo drivers can leave the table set-up and sleep in the top bunk, while team drivers may choose to collapse the table for access to both bunk beds. The workstation also allows space for storage inside the bottom bunk bases.
The workstation option was previously available on the VNL 670 model.
“This advanced workstation is the latest example of the emphasis Volvo Trucks has placed on enhancing driver comfort and driver productivity,” said Allison Athey, product marketing manager at Volvo Trucks North America. “The ability to create an exceptional all-in-one living space and working environment is essential to attracting and keeping drivers.”
