Volvo backs America’s Road Team

| October 17, 2011

The Volvo VN 780 donated in January will continue to be used for the American Trucking Associations’ America’s Road Team highway safety campaign, the truck maker announced.

The tractor features Volvo Enhanced Stability Technology by Bendix and Volvo Enhanced Cruise. The rig is also equipped with the truck maker’s I-Shift automated manual transmission.

The campaign’s drivers, known as Captains, have been using the truck to transport the ATA so-called Image Trailer, a mobile presentation facility, around the nation to use in their efforts of spreading knowledge and safety information.
