Volvo Trucks and Securitas Protect Goods Transport Against Attack

Attacks against truck drivers and their cargoes cost haulage firms in the EU several billion euro every year and constitute a major threat to the drivers. Volvo Trucks and Securitas are now launching a new security system, Security Service, aimed at lowering the risk of theft, hijacking and other threats, which will be introduced this spring. In the event of an emergency situation, the driver can press an alarm button inside his truck cab. A signal goes to Securitas call centre, which can locate the truck and contacts the local police. The driver can also directly contact the call centre via his mobile phone. Available video includes an animation of the Security Service system and footage of a truck driver at work.
