Volvo Trucks to Offer Versatile Workstation for VNL 740, 760 and VNX 740 Models

Volvo Trucks adds an ergonomically advanced workstation to its VNL 760, 740 and VNX 740 models, providing a flexible living environment for thousands of drivers who make their homes on the road. Designed to improve driver productivity, comfort and overall convenience, the upgrade is now available for order.

The improved workstation allows drivers to unwind and relax with the table and bench set up, and quickly transform the space into a comfortable sleeping arrangement.

Advanced workstation

“This advanced workstation is the latest example of the emphasis Volvo Trucks has placed on enhancing driver comfort and driver productivity,” said Allison Athey, product marketing manager at Volvo Trucks North America. “The ability to create an exceptional all-in-one living space and working environment is essential to attracting and keeping drivers.”

Each year, truck drivers spend thousands of hours in their cabs driving, living and keeping the economy going. The new workstation provides a relaxing, versatile living space for work and rest to enhance driver productivity.

This workstation was developed as a result of rigorous testing and input from Volvo customers and drivers. It features ergonomic advancements that allow drivers to enjoy the comforts of home while on the road. The workstation transforms from a sitting area and table for relaxing, eating and catching up on work, then lowers as a base for seating cushions that unfold into a bed. Additional enhancements include an angled table for easy seating; a 103-degree cushion seat angle to improve seating comfort; and connected cushions that can be easily secured to allow for adequate rest.

workstation is a prominent feature in the cab

The workstation is a prominent feature in the cab, giving drivers flexibility to personalize their living space while on the road. With various configuration possibilities, solo drivers may prefer to leave the table set-up and sleep in the top bunk, while team drivers may choose to collapse the table for access to both bunk beds. The workstation also allows space for storage inside the bottom bunk bases.

Ideal for owner/operators and fleet drivers on the road for extended periods of time, the workstation has been shown to help boost resale value for customers. Previously successful on the VNL 670 model, the enhanced workstation for the VNL 760, 740 and VNX 740 models enters production in February 2019.
