Volvo Trucks have been designing and building trucks right here in Australia for more than 45 years. Volvo Trucks’ locally built models are proud to be certified as ‘Australian Made’ as this means that whilst Volvo Trucks can support our customers with trucks built specifically for Australia’s conditions, they are also supporting Australia’s economy. Have a read to find out more about the benefits of Australian Made Volvo Trucks and how the CMV Truck & Bus team can assist you in customising your Volvo Truck to ensure it is perfect for your business.

Building trucks in Australia for Australian conditions

We have some of the most demanding road conditions in the world, with many trucks in Australia travelling with heavier loads over greater distances across a range of terrains - on corrugated roads, through the hot and dusty Outback, to the ice and snow of the Snowy Mountains. To meet these everyday challenges, a truck needs to be reliable and tough enough to stand the test of time. It is also important to have a meticulously designed cab to ensure our drivers are more comfortable and have safer driving experience. This is one of the many benefits of designing and building trucks right here in Australia – Volvo Trucks engineers understand the tough and ever-changing conditions the transport industry and drivers face every day and are able to build trucks to overcome any of these challenges.

Built and designed for you and your business

When our customers choose Volvo Trucks, they are supporting Australian families and businesses. Every Volvo FH, FM, and FMX truck is designed and locally built right here in Australia by Australians, for Australian conditions and for our customers. The Australian Volvo Trucks manufacturing facility in Wacol, Queensland, has 50 locally based engineers who work with our dedicated Volvo Sales Consultants at CMV Truck & Bus and our customers, to custom build truck’s based on the customer’s business needs.
