Volvo Trucks has added an ergonomically advanced workstation providing a flexible living environment for drivers who make their homes on the road. Designed to improve driver productivity, comfort and overall convenience, the upgrade is now available for order.
Each year, truck drivers spend thousands of hours in their cabs driving, living and keeping the economy going. The new workstation provides a relaxing, versatile living space for work and rest to enhance driver productivity.
This workstation was developed as a result of rigorous testing and input from Volvo customers and drivers. The workstation transforms from a sitting area and table for relaxing, eating and catching up on work, then lowers as a base for seating cushions that unfold into a bed. Additional enhancements include an angled table for easy 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.
Ideal for owner/operators and fleet drivers on the road for extended periods of time, the workstation has been shown to help boost resale value for customers.
