Distribution - Taking care of business

When you buy a Volvo FL or FE, you’re not just buying a truck. You’re buying all the  care that Volvo offers its customers – and opening a door to a range of support services that can make a real difference to your business.  


Distribution - Taking care of business

You need to get close to your customers – wherever they are and provide whatever they need. You can’t choose their location; if the customer’s in the heart of a congested city or a small village in a remote location, that’s where you go. At Volvo, we understand this. That’s why we’ve put so much work into developing a selection of short and medium range distribution trucks that get products to your customers.

The Volvo FL, from 12 to 18 tonne, is compact and agile enough to go anywhere, making it perfect for tight city centres or country lanes. The Volvo FE, at 18 to 26 tonne GVW, is ideal for regional distribution, with higher load capacity and the option of a sleeper cab for those occasional nights away. Both offer truly astounding versatility in every aspect from cab specification to bodybuilding.


From a curtainsider with a tail lift preparation, to a platform with crane. From a milk tanker doing a farm collection, to the fridge van going from the dairy to the shop, there is a Volvo FL or FE specification for every part of the distribution chain.

Engines from 240 to 340hp, transmissions from manual to automated – Volvo versatility means we can build you your ideal truck.  


The cab built for you

The Volvo FL and FE cabs are designed with the demands of multi-drop distribution in mind; barrier tested and structured to meet the toughest cab impact standards in the world.

Both feature excellent entry and exit  with wide, stair-like overlapping steps and a wide door.

To make life even easier, there's a hydraulically adjustable steering column and dump control on the air suspended seat that can be pushed forward and lowered respectively for more space when getting in and out. You can even opt for step illumination in the lower door.  


The air suspended driver’s seats are designed to offer you the highest possible comfort behind the wheel, hour after hour.

Thanks to a generous 180mm fore-aft adjustment range, drivers of any build can find a comfortable driving position.

All service points are easily accessible and logically grouped. Large steps in the front make cleaning the windscreen easier, the driver display shows the oil reading electronically, so there's no need for a manual check, and the  bumper is in three parts, with replaceable steel corner sections, helping to reduce the cost of minor knocks.
