In the first issue, for example, we meet two record-holders: the world’s fastest driver and record-holder for the Standing Kilometre and Asia’s best driver in the eco-driving challenge.

“We are always on the look-out for new ways of reaching our target groups,” Tommy Kohle, Senior Vice President Corporate Communications at Volvo Trucks told Tachoblog.

“We see this as a useful and effective way of spotlighting issues that concern our company, the breadth and depth of our technical expertise and, not least, the exciting assignments carried out by many of our customers.”

Volvo Trucks has a long tradition of communicating with customers and other players through editorial articles, both in print and online. Now the company is taking yet another step forward by focusing on tablet computers, starting with the iPad.

“As a knowledge company, it’s natural for us to lead the way and explore new communication channels. We want to capitalise on the opportunities offered by the iPad format, so we have included plenty of films and interactive material,” explains Kohle.

‘Volvo Trucks Magazine’can be downloaded – free of charge – from the AppStore.
