Volvo Trucks Simplifies Truck Maintenance and Boosts Uptime with Volvo Blue Service Contract for Intelligent Maintenance

Volvo Trucks North America today announced updates to its Volvo Blue service contract – its dealer managed service plan introduced earlier this year to help fleet customers continue to boost uptime and efficiency. Since first launching the Volvo Blue service contract, Volvo Trucks has onboarded and certified 37 dealer locations across the U.S., with an additional seven locations coming online in the near future. The expanded adoption of the new comprehensive Volvo Blue service contract was announced during a press event on Tuesday, May 2, at the Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo.

Across the U.S., 37 dealer locations from eight dealer management groups have been trained to sell and support the Volvo Blue service contract components. An additional seven locations are near onboarding completion this year.

“As trucks become more technologically advanced and the value of uptime continues to increase exponentially, fleets are recognizing the value of having a dedicated, Volvo Trucks fleet manager at their local dealership to provide intelligent, data driven maintenance, on a schedule which maximizes uptime through minimizing visits to the shop.” said Peter Voorhoeve, president, Volvo Trucks North America. “With a dedicated fleet manager overseeing the vehicle health, available software updates and scheduled maintenance, owner operators and fleets can focus on growing their business without having to dedicate time and resources to keeping up with maintenance records and running the risk of over or under maintaining their trucks, adding uptime and value to their bottom line.”

Benefits of the Volvo Blue service contract include:

“Customers who opt-in to the Volvo Blue service contract experience greater truck uptime than they’ve had before by reducing the number of oil changes and breakdowns with Volvo Trucks’ optimized service plan,” said Mike Furst, director, contract services & leasing technology solutions, Volvo Trucks North America. “We also have the capability to diagnose and repair some powertrain related issues through remote software updates and proactively identify existing or upcoming issues through an extended 74-point inspection plan at any of our nearly 40 Volvo certified dealer partners nationwide.”
