Truck drivers and fleet managers know they need every advantage in today’s tough economic environment. Thanks to Volvo Trucks, they have access to innovative technologies to boost fuel economy, safety and driver productivity. Three Volvo systems were in the spotlight during a special customer event in Canada held Sept. 9-10.

The Volvo Trucks Enhanced Technology Event in Canada demonstrated Volvo Enhanced Stability Technology (VEST), Volvo Enhanced Cruise (VEC) and I-Shift – technologies designed to improve efficiency and safety. The event was held at the Waterloo Regional Emergency Services Training & Research Complex in Waterloo, Ontario.

“Volvo customers and guests were able to experience firsthand the impact these key technologies can have on truck performance, and their businesses as a whole” said Carol Girard, marketing manager for Volvo Trucks in Canada.

Representatives from Volvo Trucks showcased the three systems and offered a rollover simulation experience, as well as a ride-and-drive opportunity.
