Aplicom was present at the own booth in the Commercial Vehicle Show 2016 at the NEC in Birmingham, UK. The Commercial Vehicle Show is the main event for the UK road transport, distribution and logistics industry. Over 20,000 business visitors attended the CV Show this year.
We showed our telematics units A1 and A9 and several new solutions, such as RDL-remote downloading of tachograph data, Cold Chain Temperature monitoring and utilizing EBS-data (Electronic Braking System) in cargo and trailer monitoring.
Especially Aplicom´s RDL-remote download service of digital tachograph data raised a great interest and we had several good discussions with the representatives from system integrators and service providers for tachograph data analytics.
End-users at transport companies were very interested in the benefits of automatic tachograph data download, because then the drivers do not need any additional trips to the office for the manual download and the dispatcher can assign tasks according to real-time information of driving/working hours. This brings more efficiency to daily operations of transport companies and fulfils the legal EU and UK rules and regulations for storing and reporting tachograph data for check of authorities.
