Internet marketplace www.transportation.com has announced partnership agreements with Volvo Trucks North America and Volvo Commercial Finance LLC The Americas.
Transportation.com will provide services such as online truck configuration and quoting, customized financial services, and roadside assistance, which are services aimed at small- to mid-size carriers and private fleet operators.
In return, Volvo's truck configuration program, which lets customers spec their own truck online, will be made available to Transportation.com customers. The program provides a suggested retail price and a referral to the nearest dealer.
Volvo will offer its Most Valuable Package (MVP) program, which includes a free laptop computer with software and free Internet access, to customers who spec trucks on Transportation.com. The online service's loadmatching benefit also will be a part of Volvo's MVP program.
