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.

Hours-of-service exemptions that have your truck drivers working long hours to deliver essential goods. Stay at home orders that have closed restaurants or drivers that want to socially distance to stay safe have them eating, working, sleeping, living in their cabs more than ever. As a fleet manager, it’s your responsibility to help keep them safe, comfortable and rolling productively.

How do you do that?

I connected with Volvo Trucks North America Product Marketing Manager Allison Athey to talk truck cab cleaning tips, equipment selection that leads to comfort and how to support your drivers who carry one of the heaviest loads while the quarantined world is watching.

Watch the video above for all the cab cleaning and comfort info.

Truck driver pain

In the video, Allison and I reference Volvo Truck North America’s driver back and neck pain video. You can watch that below. Make sure your sound is up. (It still gives me the shivers.)
