Volvo has been making trucks since 1928, and has been selling trucks in the UK since 1968. It is the 2nd largest manufacturer of heavy trucks, with a presence in all the major markets around the world. Volvo also makes a range of Buses which visit the Volvo Trucks Dealer network for servicing. It also makes a complete range of Construction Equipment for excavating, road laying and many other construction uses.

The Volvo Group has more than 80,000 staff. It makes trucks in 25 countries and operates in more than 185 markets worldwide.

The Volvo Trucks product range includes the FH series for long distance haulage, as well as the FM, FE and FL series trucks.

The FE is suitable for city deliveries, regional distribution and light construction. The FL series is a small, medium duty truck, ideal for city deliveries with lots of stops and starts.
