Volvo Trucks announced last week it will add optional ergonomically advanced workstation to its VNL 760, 740 and VNX 740 models, offering a flexible living and working environment for drivers.
Allison Athey, product marketing manager at Volvo Trucks North America, says the ability to create an exceptional all-in-one living space and working environment is essential in a fleet’s ability to attract and keep drivers.
The workstations include a sitting area and table for relaxing, eating and catching up on work, and then lowers as a base for seating cushions that unfold into a bed. Additional enhancements include an angled table for easier seating; a 103-degree cushion seat angle to improve seating comfort; and connected cushions that can be easily secured to allow for adequate rest.
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.
