Estonia buys new Volvo FMX trucks

15th June 2020 - 11:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Estonian Defence Forces (EDF) will receive 40 new Volvo FMX container trucks in order to bolster national defence capabilities.

This is the outcome of a framework agreement signed in August 2019 for approximately €6.9 million ($7.76 million).

Maria Karlström, managing director of Volvo Trucks Estonia, said: ‘The country can be considered an informed customer in this field, a so-called smart customer, one who knows exactly what it needs and why. The Volvo FMX is a high-quality, reliable and durable truck.’

Whilst the vehicles will be manufactured in Sweden, all their accessories and superstructure will be designed and installed in Estonia by Volvo Trucks in co-operation with Pro Lift OÜ. The Volvo FMX model has a strong frame, durable front end and a high standard of driving comfort.

The vehicles are largely expected to enter into service with the Combat Service Support Battalion of the 2nd Infantry Brigade as well as the Logistics Battalion of the Support Command.
