Volvo Trucks has started a new online video series called ‘Welcome To My Cab’.
Hmm, that name sounds a bit like View From The Cab to Tachoblog. Maybe Volvo Trucks have been following our regular weekly post!
According to the company Welcome To My Cab ‘puts the truck driver in focus by inviting viewers into the cabs of drivers around the world’.
Now click below for more and, of course, the first film.
“The driver plays a central role in our customers’ drive to generate profitability.
“Creating an environment that the driver appreciates is thus one of our main tasks when we develop new trucks.
“This series of films is a simple and enjoyable way of putting the driver in focus,” Volvo Trucks’ Tommy Kohle, Senior Vice President Corporate Communications, told Tachoblog.
First up in the new online video series is Dutch driver Dagmar Klink with her distinctive Volvo FH, known as the ‘Pink Lady’. In the short film, Dagmar Klink takes us on a tour of her truck, whose distinctive look truly stands out from the crowd out on the road.
“But when I got my own truck, I wanted everyone to know that it was a woman’s truck to make people realize that women can be truck drivers too. So I decided to choose a woman’s colour.”
“It is a big honour to be in the first ‘Welcome to my cab’ video.
“I hope lots of people see it so they know it’s possible for women to be truck drivers. We need more female truck drivers”
And here is Dagmar and Pink Lady in the first Welcome To My Cab.
