There are several things to keep in mind when configuring a lorry or commercial vehicles. Does the vehicle have multiple functions? Will a rack be right next to the door or far from it? And what impact does a crane have on a vehicle’s weight?
Once the requirements have been mapped out and the many options discussed, a blueprint will be drawn up showing the final design in exact detail. After this point, the functions are reviewed one last time before starting production.
Weight is important
Heavy weight means extra fuel consumption and lower load capacity. Weight is therefore a key focus in special constructions. One way of keeping weight down is to use aluminium or ultra-high-strength steel, materials with low weight and extreme strength.
It goes without saying that there is no compromising safety when it comes to the components of a car. A loose rack is like a missile if it’s travelling at 100 km per hour. Therefore, all components installed into a commercial vehicles are crash-tested at Volvo’s test centre in Sweden.
