Volvo Trucks is offering an ergonomically advanced workstation as an option on its VNL 760, 740 and VNX 740 models.

Previously available on the VNL 670, the enhanced workstation for the three latest models enters production in February.

“The ability to create an exceptional all-in-one living space and working environment is essential to attracting and keeping drivers,” Allison Athey, product marketing manager at Volvo Trucks North America, said in a release.

The workstation transforms to a sitting area and table for relaxing, eating and catching up on work, then lowers as a base for seating cushions that unfold into a bed. Additional enhancements include an angled table for easy seating, a 103-degree cushion seat angle to improve seating comfort and connected cushions that can be secured to allow for adequate rest. — Transport Topics
