Transportation.com will provide services such as online truck configuration and quoting, customized financial services and roadside assistance. The services are aimed at small- to mid-sized carriers and private fleet operators.
Transportation.com members will have access to Volvo's truck configuration program, which lets customers spec their own truck online. The program provides a suggested retail price and a referral to the nearest dealer.
For customers who spec and buy a new truck, Volvo offers its Most Valuable Package (MVP) program, which includes a free laptop computer with software and free Internet access. Now, Volvo has added a Transportation.com load-matching benefit to its MVP program.
“The partnership with Transportation.com gives Volvo owners an extra advantage through a complimentary one-year subscription to load-matching services,” said Marc F. Gustafson, president and CEO of Volvo Trucks North America.
Transportation.com CEO James D. Ritchie said the partnership with Volvo delivers on Transportation.com’s “commitment to assemble transportation industry market-makers.”
