Volvo said on Thursday that an agreement has been reached between Volvo Bus Corporation and Renault Trucks covering the sale of Volvo buses by Renault Trucks in France, according to an edited press release distributed through Dow Jones.

The French bus market is the second largest in Europe with more than 4,000 registrations each year. Volvo has been present in the market for more than 30 years selling primarily tourist coaches as well as inter-city and city buses.

During the past 10 years, more than 1,200 Volvo buses and coaches have been delivered to French customers.

Concurrent with the new marketing agreement, Volvo Buses will gradually present new models to meet market needs in France. The cooperation with Renault Trucks will provide Volvo Buses access to a large dealer network for repair, service and spare parts.
