Route planning can save miles
CV Show says that good planning can cut costs and mileage.
The Commercial Vehicle (CV) Show organisers are encouraging fleet managers to visit their exhibition in April next year to see a variety of ways by which LCV fleets can cut costs, mileage and emissions.
The CV Show is held annually and the 2015 show is set to run from April 13 – 15 at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham.
Exhibitors include Cybit, Tom Tom Work and Road Tech, all of which will be showing off their latest route-planning technology.
Organisers of the show are advising courier fleet managers to avoid costly fuel bills and delays by scoping out the best route-management system for their fleet; the newest satellite navigation technologies can identify LCV-specific routes in order to avoid low bridges, for example.
Due to the huge amount of new technologies now available to fleets, 2015’s CV Show will feature a dedicated IT Zone, featuring routing and scheduling devices, on-board computers and wireless solutions.
