Explore the logistics of cost cutting at CV Show 2014

11 December 2013 #SMMT News

Operating costs are one of the key issues concerning today’s commercial vehicle industry and is just one of the issues being tackled by exhibitors at the CV Show 2014, such as Tachodisc and Trakm8.

Karen Crispe, Managing Director of Tachodisc, the tachograph legislation experts, is a long-time exhibitor and great supporter of the Show. “The CV Show has become the main event of the CV industry calendar. It’s the perfect opportunity to get the industry together under one roof and it provides an excellent networking opportunity and gives exhibitors, large and small, the chance to demonstrate their latest innovations and developments,” she said.

“We firmly believe that the use of technology, including telematics, has become an absolute ‘must’ for all operators. Total efficiency can only be achieved with total compliance. It’s quite simple; you can’t have one without the other. Efficiency and compliance; telematics and technology has become the glue that joins the two together.”

Fuel represents nearly 40% of a haulier’s operating costs, and global telematics provider Trakm8 is leading the way in enabling businesses to reduce that cost. Paul Wilson, Trakm8 Sales Director commented, “Thanks to our ecoN technology, many company fleets are becoming incredibly fuel efficient. The CV Show 2014 will give us the perfect chance to demonstrate that ecoN is easy to install, discreet and exceptional in performance. Working in conjunction with our most technically advanced telematics equipment and unique online interface, ecoN can transform any business in a positive way whilst also reducing costs”.

These are just two of the companies in the widely varied telematics sector that recognise the importance of exhibiting at the 2014 Commercial Vehicle Show.

The 2014 Commercial Vehicle Show will run from 29 April- 1 May 2014 at the NEC in Birmingham. For further information, visit, e-mail or call 01634 261262.
