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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
