Asset management ideas to meet delivery demand with Volvo Trucks

Asset management ideas to meet delivery demand with Volvo Trucks

No script? No plan? No problem. Welcome to Fleet Equipment Unscripted—the video interview series that connects you with the greatest minds in the heavy-duty trucking world.

Meeting customer delivery expectations is always a top trucking fleet priority, but with the Coronavirus pandemic creating huge demand for necessary supplies and the entire world watching, making on-time deliveries is even more crucial. Reducing downtime by leveraging remote diagnostics, improving operating efficiency to stay profitable even as the market turns, and leveraging over-the-air update capabilities for both a productivity boost and to maintain social distancing – data offers lots of options, but where do you start?

I connected with Ash Makki, product marketing manager for technology with Volvo Trucks North America, and put that question to him in the latest episode of Fleet Equipment Unscripted. Watch the video above for his answer and other ideas to help you stay productive and meet demands (or to take a break from the Coronavirus coverage and listen to something fun).
