Discover the secrets behind Volvo’s FH range success story


After 26 years since its initial launch in 1993 the Volvo FH accounts for nearly 20% of sales in its sector. The FH has been voted International Truck of the Year on three occasions and it has also collected many transport industry magazine awards along the way, including Motor Transport’s Fleet Truck of the Year in 2017.

‘Once in service with our customers it soon became clear that it was a world-beater’ Mike Corcoran, commercial director, Volvo Trucks UK & Ireland

However, this success has not been achieved by resting on its laurels. During the past 25 years Volvo has continually developed and delivered many new technologies, alongside world leading safety features. A timeline of these innovations, key moments and awards can be found within these pages.

Reliability and longevity are the cornerstones of any profitable heavy truck and a wide range of customers across the globe rely on the Volvo FH. Long-established haulage contractor Des Hartley & Sons Transport of Birstall, Leeds is one of a select few operators that still use all four Volvo FH generations on frontline haulage duties. The story of this remarkable family-run firm follows on pages 12 and 13.

Finally, looking to the future, we round off this publication with a focus on Volvo’s FH 25 Year Edition truck and the LNG powered FH range. Both these exciting vehicles will be making the news and raising the bar further in future, as the FH range enters its 26th year in production.
