Volvo Trucks has been a proud part of Australia's road transport industry since 1967 and has grown to become one of the largest heavy-duty truck suppliers in our country today.

From a global perspective it's been 87 years since the first Volvo truck was built back in 1928. Today, Volvo Trucks are the world's third largest producer of heavy trucks, creating reliable transport solutions for clients all over the world.
Making the world a safer place
Some people view safety as protecting drivers in an emergency. That is, however, only one part of the picture we see.
The safety of a Volvo truck is, of course, continuously and meticulously tested - in our laboratories, on test tracks and out on the roads where the trucks are in use.
But the fact that we have always managed to be at the frontline in safety work is not only thanks to our pioneering safety innovations. It's because our safety concept has evolved to encompass safety in a broader context: it comprises personal, family and business values as well.
In our view, safety is about people, about all of us, about you. As our founders put it, "An automobile carries, and is driven by, people. Safety is and must be the basic principle in all design work".
When we start to design a Volvo truck we approach safety from two major perspectives, Preventing Accidents and Reducing Injuries.
The Measure of Quality
A truck must be able to handle important transport assignments 24 hours a day. It has to be dependable: reliability is the measure of quality in trucks - and reliability equals uptime.
This view on quality is our guiding principle when we build a Volvo truck, from no-tools preventive maintenance to continuous materials testing, and from dealer testing to global parts resourcing. It is the outcome of quality in the entire development chain - design, engineering, materials, manufacturing, sales, and aftersales services.
In the end, this helps keep your Volvo truck reliable, proven by your bottom line and the high resale value a few years down the line.
