“We’re delighted to be back at the CV Show and present our fantastic new Euro-6 range. Market conditions are improving and it’s a great opportunity to exhibit to the whole market,” says Gino Costa, Managing Director. “These are exciting times for Renault Trucks. Our new range is designed around a total cost of ownership approach that we believe perfectly matches current UK buying behaviour and we’re excited to have the opportunity to present this at the Show.”

Exhibits on the Renault Trucks stand will include two Range T tractor units – a 6×2 owner operator specification and a 4×2 fleet specification; two Range D distribution chassis at 12 tonnes and 26 tonnes; an 8×4 Range C construction chassis and a Renault Master.

Transdek UK will launch its new Double Deck Urban Eco Trailer (DUET) at this year’s CV Show, developed to meet growing retailer demand for greater efficiencies on last-mile deliveries to urban centres.

DUET has been designed to carry high load volumes in the urban environment. The new trailer is 10.6 metres long and 4m-4.3m high, depending on customer specification. It has a payload of 22 tonnes compared to just nine tonnes for a typical 18 tonne rigid vehicle and is also fully compatible with low-profile double deck lifts. Full loading can be achieved in as little as 45 minutes.

The trailer incorporates a unique rear door closure, permitting the lowest possible height profile while providing safe kerbside offloading. With a significantly smaller turning circle than a rigid truck, the DUET also offers high-level accessibility in congested city streets. Additional features planned include a specially designed two tier column lift to service product to ground level at stores, with a unique hinged automatic safety rail for operator and product protection on the raised lift platform.

Transdek’s Managing Director, Mark Adams, says, “With the growth of the convenience format in the grocery retail sector and an increasing focus on high street deliveries, we believe there is an opportunity to revolutionise the efficiency of urban freight deliveries. With our new DUET trailer, up to 100% more product can be carried per vehicle. The DUET can halve the number of deliveries, slashing transport costs and CO2 emissions by up to 50%.”

Bridgestone will showcase its holistic fleet tyre care that aims to maximise tyre life, reducing tyre cost/km over the entire lifecycle, and also offer a first glimpse of an innovative new Bridgestone global application.

Product and Marketing Manager Andy Mathias said, “We are genuinely proud of our Total Tyre Care offering and we believe it gives us a big advantage over our competitors. The CV Show is our most significant opportunity of the year in terms of communicating key company messages and the many opportunities that exist over the three days.”

Bridgestone has also developed a digital fleet management solution to meet operators’ needs. The ‘Toolbox Touch’, a native Windows 8 application with tablets in mind, records huge quantities of tyre data in a clear and concise manner. Bridgestone tyre professionals will visit subscribers’ fleets periodically and inspect a sample of all tyres. The data is captured on Toolbox and presented back to fleet managers, providing a real insight into tyre maintenance and performance levels – then Bridgestone will advise how to transfer this analysis to real financial savings.

Andy Mathias added, “The app represents a big advance in technology and efficiency for Bridgestone. It records inspection of tyres on vehicles and quickly generates user-friendly reports for fleet consulting services.”

Bandvulc Group provides a wide range of services to the logistics industry and, following a strategic look at what it offers, has carried out a rebranding to demonstrate it is ‘More than a tyre’. This has meant a subtle change to the main logo and new names for Devon Rubber and Bandvulc Tyre Contracts combined with a completely new website.

‘More than a tyre’, is the new mantra for the Bandvulc Group. The Group is the largest independent retreader in the UK, using rubber mixed by its own compounding company, BV Mixing, a fleet tyre management solution via BVPlus+ and a new tyre offering from its wholesale company, BVF1rst. The final part is Tyre Maintenance, the Group’s wholly-owned service provider.

A new website has been designed to give a simple, clear and precise overview of the Group at www.bandvulc.com and the new brand image will be on display at the CV Show.

Patrick O’Connell, MD, commented, “Over the past few years, we have seen growth in our activities and introduced new areas of business such as tyre wholesale and service provision. This new brand launch and awareness campaign builds a strong foundation for future growth and diversification.”

In order to showcase Air1’s revolutionary equipment in action, its CV Show stand will have a brand new Volvo FH on display. The truck will be used to demonstrate the operation of an air-powered IBC pump for sites without access to an electrical supply.

As well as powering the air pump, the Volvo FH will also be the focus for hosting a daily competition, where three lucky entrants, selected daily, will be the proud owners of an Air1 model tanker (1:50) and a child’s Volvo pedal truck (with Air1 livery).

Air1 is also keen to promote the importance of quality AdBlue. With more vehicles now adopting SCR technology, it is imperative that truck owners have confidence in the source of their AdBlue. Because Air1 is the largest prime producer of AdBlue, full traceability to the point of manufacture is assured.

Axtec, the UK’s only specialist manufacturer of axle weighing systems will launch the latest version of its dynamic axle weighbridge at CV Show 2014. Axtec dynamic axle weighbridges are used nationally by VOSA and already the most accurate of its type in the world – and the only one that achieves the required standard to be offered as a Public Weighbridge.

The new version, Axtec Series 5000, uses the latest high-speed processors to improve accuracy, touch screen technology to simplify use and a range of additional cost-saving features. The new system can communicate wirelessly with most of Axtec’s range of remote displays and printers, significantly reducing installation time so that costs for ducting and wiring between components can be eliminated.

A new, clear prompting display provides simple instructions to make the system even more user friendly, and by using touch screen technology, vulnerable moving components are removed, meaning less to go wrong.

All Axtec’s existing software can be used with the new system but with greater data-gathering capabilities and easier download options, recorded weight data will be faster, more accurate and easier to handle.

Smartanalysis, the tachograph analysis and compliance management software as a service, has become even smarter with SmartLicence, an integrated driving licence management and verification service.

With 22% of drivers using out-of-date documents and around one million drivers just three points away from a disqualification, a visual check of a driving licence once a year is not enough. Changes can happen very quickly and licence details should be verified with DVLA at least twice a year.

At CV Show 2014, Descartes will demonstrate how users can set the frequency of licence checks with DVLA, based on driver risk, using SmartLicence. As with Smartanalysis, once the process is set up everything happens in the background. Users can subscribe to the reports and alerts they want and have the results e-mailed to them. The licence verification is conducted online with DVLA and results are normally received overnight. Operators’ tachograph and driving licence data is safe, secure and always available should the authorities want to see it.

Busy transport managers can now manage their compliance with tachograph regulations, drivers’ hours and Working Time Directive and ensure their drivers are licensed to drive with a subscription to Smartanalysis, any time and place they have an internet connection,

With more and more voices being raised to reduce noise emitted by transportation, distribution companies are looking for ways to limit the noise levels of their fleets.

Thermo King combines quiet operation, uncompromised performance and low environmental impact in the SLXe Whisper Pro trailer refrigeration unit. The recently introduced SLXe Whisper Pro complies with the recent, most stringent PIEK requirements.

Thermo King engineers chose a specially designed acoustic package to reduce the creation of sound energy and contain it at source. Strategically located noise-absorbent materials and a redesigned engine compartment reduce noise transmission. Even the exhaust system has been specially tuned to minimise sound generation at low engine speeds.

Mechanical innovations were married to a piece of electronic wizardry, a dedicated controller that monitors time and position automatically to switch the unit into low-noise mode only when it is required. Local PIEK criteria can be simply programmed on one trailer and then uploaded to the whole fleet.

The technological achievement is considerable. Not only does the SLXe Whisper Pro give the operator compliance and flexibility, but the unit also delivers an improvement of approximately 15% in fuel efficiency when compared to other models in its market segment. The distribution companies receive maximum load protection while limiting operating costs.

The Whisper Pro unit benefits from all strengths of the SLXe range including ease of service, commonality of components, high resale value and the expert 24/7 support of the Thermo King Dealer network.

The leading UK provider of on-car brake disc lathes is delighted to announce a new truck lathe. Guy Carter, formerly Managing Director of Haweka UK and distributor for Procut Brake Disc Lathes on a national basis, has released a new range of lathes with a broader target audience.

Guy Carter has sold over 1,000 brake discs lathes in the UK and lends his experience to the market ensuring that the right type of machine is specified for individual customers. His experience will help the customer to identify workshop needs and recommend, demonstrate and support with the correct machine for the job.

Guy says, “A huge percentage of HGVs fail the MOT test each year on brake-related issues, most of which are imbalance or lock-out related. Our MAD-DA9000 will re-align the disc and ensure the disc/pad surfaces are as good as new in around 20 minutes per disc on the truck”.

Dynastat brake disc lathes machine brake discs while on the vehicle and reduce brake disc run-out, improving braking performance and efficiency. The company claims Dynastat on car lathes will enable fast, accurate machining in a fraction of the time it takes to replace the disc.

Many of Dynastat’s range have OEM approval from manufacturers such as MAN, Mercedes-Benz, Peugeot, Renault, Toyota and Volvo.
