Supporting the customers
The Volvo Group’s customers play an important role in everyday life in society. Buses take children to school, trucks distribute food to stores, gensets provide electricity to rural hospitals, machines build roads and garbage trucks collect the waste.
The competition in the transport sector is very tough and the margins are small. This is why the Volvo Group places a lot of effort into supporting the customers to be successful in their business. In addition to vehicles and machines, the Volvo Group’s offering includes various types of financing solutions, insurance, rental services, spare parts, preventive maintenance, service agreements, assistance services and IT services. The range and flexibility of the offering means that the solutions can be customized for each customer.
The Volvo Group understands the specifics of the transport and infrastructure business better than a standard finance company. For this reason many customers choose to finance their truck, bus or machine purchase through the Volvo Group’s finance company. Apart from financing, the financial solution can also include service and maintenance agreements, leasing agreements and insurance.
If something happens on the road, such as a flat tire or a broken windshield, Volvo Action Service, the road assistance service for Volvo trucks customers, is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The customer will get support via a case manager that speaks the customer’s language and supports the customer until the issue has been solved. This service does not just include problems with the vehicle; it can also involve financial assistance, translation assistance, trailer repair, driver repatriation or legal assistance.
