Frank Bio, Volvo's North American product manager, was on hand to guide me through the test drive and make sure I understood every facet of the truck and its operating systems.
Frank's the perfect guy for the job. He's got more than 40 years of experience at both Mack and Volvo. Point to any nut on the tractor, and he knows why they opted to make it a 10 mm instead of a 15 mm; his knowledge of Volvo's trucks is that intimate.
One thing Frank reinforced for me as we conducted a vehicle walkaround and then a test drive was the great lengths Volvo engineers go to in order to make drivers safer and more productive.

That means highway construction companies will need additional equipment quickly as contracts are awarded, said Frank Bio, director of truck and vocational marketing for Volvo.This program provides immediate delivery on high performance rear-discharge mixers, allowing fleets to get up and running right away with no time lost waiting for equipment..
Each of the 11 Volvo dealers located in the five-state initial market area have Volvo mixers in stock.Volvo will also maintain a pool of inventory for immediate delivery should larger orders be placed.
To maintain the pool, Volvo is pre-drilling chassis frames during the assembly process with London Machinery's mounting hole pattern.
This program provides a two-fold value for customers, said Bio.They get a well-equipped, top quality, premium mixer.They also get it exactly when they want it.Knowing they can take immediate delivery n equipment needed to complete a job will help contractors prepare more accurate bids as well as plan more precise work schedules once a contract is awarded..
As part of the program, Volvo will maintain a pool of demo vehicles that will be at the dealer's disposal to demonstrate the vehicle's capabilities to prospective customers.
Volvo Action Service is our commitment to each and every customer that Volvo stands behind its products, and will do whatever it takes to ensure our products and services contribute to their success, said Bio.

Frank Bio, Volvo Trucks product manager—trucks, said his company will continue to recommend aerodynamic devices and other features that assist in improving fuel efficiency. As part of ongoing work to further improve fuel efficiency, Volvo Trucks introduced in early 2011 advanced aerodynamic components for the Volvo VNL model highway trucks, he says.
Bio advises: match the tractor height to the trailer using a roof fairing or full height cab; shorten the trailer gap and add cab extenders; add chassis fairings and ground effect devices; and consider additional manufacturer-recommended devices.
Since aerodynamic feature returns are not additive, the customer needs to work with the manufacturer for realistic numbers when adding a series of aero devices, Bio said.
