,

OBS Logistics is to launch of its VEhub mobile app for vehicle management at the forthcoming CV Show. It is designed to provide an entry level system for fleet management to transport operators of all sizes.

The Android app is available for the TomTom PRO 827x series and extends the use of its photo capture capability and geo location tracking to enable companies running a transport operation to manage everyday processes more efficiently.

Giles Margerison, sales director at TomTom Telematics said: “OBS Logistics is making optimal use of our.connect partner strategy. They have built an app that our TomTom PRO 827x customers will strongly benefit from.”

Gasrec, the supplier of liquefied gas for road transport, will have the UK’s first DAF Euro 6 dual-fuel heavy goods vehicle, a 450hp XF on display at this year’s CV Show.

Chris Thornycroft Smith, Gasrec non-executive director, said: “It has been tremendously exciting to see the success of this first DAF Euro 6 conversion to dual-fuel. It comes at a time when we have a host of vehicle manufacturers moving forward with their R&D programmes to advance the development of gas vehicles for the future as demand for this commercially and environmentally advantageous technology grows.”

DIESELGAS (formerly Prins Autogas) is the first company to successfully convert a new DAF Euro 6 vehicle to run on dual-fuel (compressed natural gas and diesel). The innovation provides a solution to the difficulties facing the dual-fuel vehicle technology industry in adapting a Euro 6 type vehicle to run using this carbon saving technology.

The Commercial Vehicle Show, takes place from 14-16 April at the NEC in Birmingham.
