In Volvo, the Swedes have created one of the most recognisable brands on our roads – and that doesn’t stop at cars. Volvo’s trucks are renowned for their reliability, sturdiness and overall safety, so, whether you’re a distance hauler or a heavy goods distributor, you can’t go wrong.

Popular adverts for Volvo Trucks have displayed the manoeuvrability of the vehicles to great effect and that certainly transfers to the road in what is an impressively vast range. From the FE to the new FMX, there’s a Volvo for every type of trucker.

Click on the dates in the timeline below to view interesting events in Volvo's history
01.01.1926
Volvo is Founded
Volvo begins operations in Sweden, with production of road cars beginning one year later; however, the company had already started designing trucks by the end of this year.
01.01.1928
Volvo Starts Making Trucks
https://www.trucklocator.co.uk/trucks-for-sale/0227765001383840388m.jpg
The first Volvo truck rolls off the production line; named the ‘Series 1’, the truck was not particularly powerful, and utilised a petrol engine which delivered only 28 bhp. Not much use for haulage today, but a massive leap forward in the 1920s.
01.01.1932
Volvo Introduce LV Truck
https://www.trucklocator.co.uk/trucks-for-sale/0283463001383840388m.jpg
The LV series is introduced, and Volvo had already developed a reputation for producing high quality light and medium-duty trucks; the company had quickly become the dominant manufacturer of automobiles in the Nordic countries.
01.01.1954
Volvo Trucks launch L36
https://www.trucklocator.co.uk/trucks-for-sale/0336020001383840388m.jpg
Volvo releases the L36, with the L37 coming a couple of years later. The trucks are notable for being among the last Volvo lorries with bonnets, and among the first to feature the modern diesel engines for which Volvo would soon become famous.
01.01.1962
Volvo are first for cab-over design
https://www.trucklocator.co.uk/trucks-for-sale/0390159001383840388m.jpg
Volvo pioneers tilt-cabs, which would become standard across most manufacturers’ trucks a couple of decades later.
01.01.1965
The F Series Begins (Forward Control)
https://www.trucklocator.co.uk/trucks-for-sale/0445498001383840388m.jpg
The F series is first introduced in the form of the F82 and F83. Newer versions of this series are available to buy on TruckLocator.co.uk, but it all started here. Named ‘F’ to denote that the trucks were forward control, these two trucks were still powered by petrol as many of Volvo’s customers ‘preferred good performance to low fuel consumption’.
01.01.1979
Globetrotter Cab Annouhced
https://www.trucklocator.co.uk/trucks-for-sale/0500251001383840388m.jpg
The Globetrotter first appears. The Globetrotter versions would not only become the most successful trucks in Volvo’s history, but also the benchmark for luxury cabs for more than 20 years.
01.01.1998
Volvo Launches FM Series
https://www.trucklocator.co.uk/trucks-for-sale/0554017001383840388m.jpg
The FM series arrives, heralding the release of the trucks that are currently available on this site. Though it was introduced as a successor to the previous F range, massive advancements in technology and comfort meant that the FM series gave Volvo the opportunity to dominate the heavy trucks market – especially once the Globetrotter cabs were introduced to the FM range.
01.01.2006
Volvo Launch FE and FL
https://www.trucklocator.co.uk/trucks-for-sale/0568733001383840388m.jpg

05.09.2012
New Euro 6 FH Launched
https://www.trucklocator.co.uk/trucks-for-sale/0636063001383840388m.jpg
650,000 FH trucks sold since the first FH rolled off the production line back in 1993, the new Euro 6 truck takes automation to a new level with the I-See package.
01.01.1993
Volvo Launches their famous FH Truck
https://www.trucklocator.co.uk/trucks-for-sale/0708913001383840388m.jpg
Still using the FH brand today, the development of the FH truck was a gamechanger for Volvo. It has become one of the most desired trucks on the road today.
Volvo truck video

Volvo is a good bet for all trucking requirements, especially considering the company’s unerring dedication to safety and quality of build.

It is the second largest heavy duty truck brand in the world, with the company having started out in the 1920s in Sweden. Production now happens in 15 countries across the world, which is a clear marker that it has become one of the most trusted truck brands around.

Which Volvo truck is right for me?

Volvo FE series

The Volvo FE has been available since 2006 (as was the FL series), so gadgets are all present and accounted for on most second hand trucks for sale. The FE operates between 18 and 26 tonnes, with a 7.2 litre engine (again, the same one as the FL). Mid-range, and great for tipping work.

Volvo FH series

The FH series has been around since 1993, and is arguably the most successful truck in history – and with good reason. Twice winner of the ‘Truck of the Year’ award, and selling more than 400,000 units to date, the FH series is perhaps the best solution for long haulage, as it has the most spacious cab and is remarkably efficient.

Volvo FL series

The FLs are a fairly recent addition to Volvo’s repertoire having been first made available in 2006, which means the gadgets are guaranteed to be present when you purchase a used one. The FL series is medium duty.

Volvo FLM

The FLM is widely utilised by the fire service, and as such is quite rare when it comes to the second hand haulage market. A fantastic truck nonetheless.

FM series

The FM series of trucks has a more restrictive cab than the FH range, which means that the FMs are inferior for long haulage – especially where a co-driver is required. Still a solid, reliable truck for short haul, and is available with a sleeper cab if necessary.

Volvo FMX

Volvo prides itself on offering the best possible solution for any business requirement, and they’ve arguably surpassed themselves when it comes to extremely heavy duty construction work with the release of the FMX. Volvo have maintained a strong hold on this market since 1931, so the FMX is guaranteed quality and extra-tough.

How Volvo Trucks has Introduced the New Range to Volvo Dealers

Volvo has invested a lot of time and money on the launch of their new Euro 6 range, so much so that their Q3 financial results were down sharply as it funded the launch programme for Volvo and subsidiary, Renault Trucks. Take a look at how Volvo has prepared its sales operation for the introduction of the new range of trucks in the short video.

Volvo Hookloaders


A Volvo FM hookloader has to be able to handle very heavy loads, which is not a unique attribute in itself, since this is something all trucks must offer. But the attribute which sets these vehicles apart from the rest of the market is of course the hook loading mechanism mounted on the rear, enabling a variety of containers to be lifted on without the use of additional equipment. The Volvo FM... Read more
