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 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.
