Volvo are unveiling an incredible stunt film for their new truck, which has superb driveability and could transform delivery work for many couriers.

Working in the haulage industry, I find that it is important to keep afloat of all the new trucks coming to the market to see how they can make delivery work easier, safer and more efficient. One new vehicle which has caught my attention is Volvo Trucks’ new beast, the FH complete, with unique powertrain with I-Shift Dual Clutch.

Volvo is pulling out all the stops to advertise this new truck with an incredible Live Test promo video titled ‘The Flying Passenger’. This video has premiered on the 29th of November on all of their digital platforms, so be sure to look it up.

What Does the Stunt Entail?

The amazing film shows the Volvo FH tow a paraglider up a winding mountain pass in the Croatian countryside – a precision stunt that has never been tried before. In order to keep the brave paraglider in the air, the driver must maintain a high cruising speed at all times up the steep mountain road and under an overhanging bridge with a narrow opening. To succeed, it will require precision driving at a constant cruising speed and there is no margin for error. Every trucker will know just how challenging it can be to maintain speed on hilly terrain, so the engine and gearbox must have fantastic driveability.

How Does this Show the Superiority of the New Truck?

‘The Flying Passenger’ is not just an impressive visual stunt - this challenge is an extreme way of showing the powerful performance and efficiency of Volvo’s unique powertrain, which is built of an enhanced D13 Euro-6 engine and I-Shift automated Dual Clutch gearbox. This advanced technology ensures that the truck loses no momentum when changing gears in tricky conditions, all thanks to impressive power shift gear changes.

Staffan Wendeber, the Product Manager FH and Long Haul at Volvo Trucks, further explained:

“Driving in high gears and securing seamless gear shifting is an important factor for fuel efficiency. The I-Shift Dual Clutch enables smooth driving while staying in high gears and low rev.”

Keeping fuel consumption low, regardless of driving conditions, is important in all delivery work and this stunt showcases the smooth, efficient driveability of Volvo Trucks’ new vehicle.

How Can I See the Film?

Visit Volvo Trucks’ website, social media channels or YouTube page to see ‘The Flying Passenger’. This is not the first stunt that the manufacturer has used to advertise their vehicles – other instalments in the Live Test series include ‘The Epic Split’, ‘The Hamster Stunt’ and ‘Look Who’s Driving’. These can all be found in the same places and have already been viewed over 100 million times on YouTube.

All haulage companies need to be aware of the latest vehicles and technologies used to make delivery work easier , safer and more affordable. Volvo Trucks have taken the challenge to the next level and presented it in the most spectacular fashion possible.

Tips For Shopping Online

1. If a website is not secure, do not buy something. Simply search for at the website address when you are shopping. If you notice an "https" instead of an "http," you can feel confident enough to insert your charge card information. However, if there is no "s" inside the address, proceed to a different site to be around the safe side.

2. Be careful where you submit your credit card information. If you are shopping online, only use secure sites. These are sites that have taken steps to guard your valuable information. A secured website will begin with HTTPS as opposed to the standard HTTP. There can also be a locked icon, in a choice of your address or status bar, based on which browser you use.

3. When you are online shopping, make sure that you are merely shopping on secure websites. Look in the site URL and it also should display "https" rather than the usual "http" at the beginning. Usually have an up-to-date copy of anti-virus running on your computer too. This will make certain you have a safe online shopping experience.

4. In the event you shop frequently at a certain website or online store, it might be worth it to sign up for their email updates which usually have special deals and sales. This can translate into savings for you personally as you may get yourself a discount in the item or even free shipping, which can add up to bigger savings if you pick from the site often.

5. Make it a habit to register for price alerts. This goes even for purchases that you've recently made. Price alerts will let you know when a product has dropped to a price you like. And if you've recently purchased at full price, you can ask for a price adjustment to meet the newest deal.
