Volvo gives new VNL 760 to America’s Road Team

road-team-volvo

Volvo Trucks North America presented a new Volvo VNL 760 to representatives of the America’s Road Team at the recent Volvo Ocean Race stopover in Newport, Rhode Island.

The America’s Road Team program is a national public outreach effort led by expert professional truck drivers who have logged millions of accident-free miles. The ATA created the America’s Road Team in 1986, and Volvo Trucks North America has been the exclusive sponsor of the program since 2002.

The Road Team Captains will drive the new VNL 760 and the American Trucking Associations’ (ATA) Interstate One mobile classroom trailer all over America, meeting with everyone from members of Congress to school-aged children to help spread the word about how the trucking industry delivers America’s freight safely, securely and on time. The 53-ft. show trailer, which is equipped with a conference room, seven presentation screens, a truck driving simulator and educational displays enables the Captains to deliver interactive trucking demonstrations on safety and the importance of trucking on daily life.

“It’s an honor for us to work with such a dedicated, elite group of industry professionals,” said Magnus Koeck, Volvo Trucks North America’s vice president of marketing and brand management. “The America’s Road Team embodies all the greatest elements of this industry. They’re truly heroes and we’re happy to support them with the best tools for the job, a new VNL 760 outfitted with our top safety, efficiency, comfort, and connectivity features.”

“America’s Road Team Captains speak to tens of thousands of people every year about the essential and safe role the trucking industry plays in the American economy, and being able to showcase industry-leading equipment like the Volvo VNL 760 really helps reinforce our message,” said Chris Spear, president and chief executive officer of ATA. “Volvo Trucks’ generosity is deeply appreciated by ATA and goes a long way toward helping us reach our goals as an association.”
