Keeping the city clean

Gothenburg, Sweden: The city is a wonderful place to be – but keeping it clean is no small challenge. Urban transportation of waste and recycling material is often taken for granted. But imagine having to drive a truck in rush hour traffic, streets bustling with people and activity, or manoeuvring in narrow alleys and tight spaces. Every work day is like a labyrinth. This is why Wikab Transport’s fleet includes the compact, agile Volvo FL. It’s designed specifically for the city environment so that it can go where other trucks can’t – helping drivers like Efvelina Andreasson get the job done quickly, safely and efficiently. So, to everybody who helps keep our cities beautiful, thank you. After all, it’s about quality of life – every day.
