The construction equipment provider, which has 150,000 of the group’s connected assets, says its connectivity offering helps customers boost uptime, safety and productivity with the use of smart site solutions.
To mark the achievement Volvo CE has handed over four excavators – each complete with Volvo’s built-in telematics system CareTrack – to Danish rental company GSV Materieludlejning in Kirke Hyllinge, Denmark.
Jens Ejsing, MD of Volvo CE Denmark, commented: “As a premium brand, we work every day to provide a premium service that will help customers like GSV Materieludlejning use their Volvo equipment in the most efficient way possible.
“For us, connectivity means not only significant increases in safety, uptime and fuel efficiency, all the while lowering costs. It is also a vital tool to help us realise our goal to build a better world’’.
Volvo CE says that, thanks to the collected data, wear on crucial parts can be predicted, services planned and spare parts ordered in advance – all reducing downtime for the owner, thus leading to increased productivity.
Dan Vorsholt, CEO of GSV Materieludlejning, said: “We are excited to be part of this connectivity revolution and proving what can be achieved with a first-class fleet management system. It is essential that we are able to keep track of every aspect of our business, so being able to monitor our machine productivity, right down to the second, is a major contributor to our success.”
