Volvo Construction Equipment Introduced CareTrack Telematics System

New Volvo D-Series Excavators

To meet the needs of the Malaysian market that is both growing and becoming increasingly sophisticated, Volvo Construction Equipment introduced three new machines — the 38-ton and 48-ton excavators and the 11-ton soil compactor — and its popular telematics system, CareTrack on Monday.

The CareTrack system is unique because it enables remote diagnostics by using GPRS (mobile network) or satellite technology to send information. CareTrack also helps to increase machine up-time and productivity and decrease total cost of ownership.

“CareTrack Monitor has saved the company nearly two liters of fuel per hour per machine”, said by CareTrack customer.

The Volvo Group is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of trucks, buses and construction equipment, drive systems for marine and industrial applications and aerospace components. Volvo group is the world’s first construction equipment manufacturer to join WWF Climate Savers. By 2014, they intent to cut CO2 emissions from their products by 15 million tons, present a prototype with considerably improved fuel efficiency and cut CO2 emissions from their production plants by 0.2 million tons.
