Sustainable transport solutions

Growing populations and further urbanization put increasing demands on sustainable and efficient transport ­solutions. The Volvo Group takes an active part in the development of future transports.


The Volvo Group’s products and services play an important role in society. Trucks transport food and other goods to their destinations. Buses help many people to reach work, holiday destinations, friends and family. Machines build roads, bridges and schools. Marine engines power in-land waterway vessels and coast guard boats. If a fully functional power system is not available, industrial engines can provide a secure electrical supply to hospitals and airports.
