More launches revealed for the CV Show 2016 15 April 2016

Latest to break cover and reveal their intentions for the CV Show (26—28 April, NEC, Birmingham) include Asset Alliance, Coolertech, Giti Tyyre, Jaama, Isuzu, TruTac and VisionTrack.

CV contract hire specialist Asset Alliance – which includes Asset Alliance, Total Reefer, ATE Truck & Trailer Sales and Forest Asset Finance – intends to launch a free guidebook (Smart money: a best-practice guide to fleet procurement) that puts the case for prudent fleet financing.

Alliance will also be running a motorsport challenge on a simulator, with the fastest driver winning “a premium motorsport experience” – while visitors can also meet Aston Martin Racing driver and British GT Champion Jonny Adam.

Coolertech says it will show five temperature controlled vehicles, from car-derived vans to 26-tonne rigids in Hall 3’s Cool Zone – two insulated panel van conversions and three insulated box bodies.

The box bodies – all from the company’s AiroTech range – include a 7.5-tonne Isuzu N75.190 truck as well as a 3.5-tonne Mercedes Sprinter 313 and the new 3.5-tonne Ford Transit demonstrator.

Giti is to debut its expanded GT Radial GSR225 Combi Road range at the CV Show, while also promoting its GT REE Tread retreading and 3PMSF certified programmes for truck and bus.

The GSR225 Combi Road multi-use steer axle range has three new 19.5in sizes – 245/70R19.5, 265/70R19.5 and 285/70R19.5 – plus upgraded load indices for its next generation 22.5in tyres to meet Euro 6 requirements.

Also promised for the stand are the GTL919 long haul trailer tyre in 19.5in and 22.5in, GAU861 all-position urban city-bus, the GAM831 non-directional, all-position mixed service, GSW226 winter-marked high-traction steer axle plus the GAR820 regional all-position tyres.

Moving on to Jaama, the cokmapny says visitors can check out its Key2 vehicle and driver management system, with modules including Risk Profile and Licence2Check.

Demand for simple but robust validation of employees’ driving licences is increasing following last year’s abolition of the paper counterpart to the driving licence – so stopping off at Jaama’s CV Show stand makes a lot of sense.

As for Isuzu, which is celebrating its centenary year, the Japanese manufacturer will be unveiling a special edition pick-up at the CV Show – with Isuzu’s 2.5-litre twin-turbo diesel engine, producing 163PS and 400Nm of torque.

The new D-Max Centurion, an extension of the award-winning D-Max range, is the being hailed as the brand’s ultimate pick-up – the highest-spec D-Max yet and, fittingly, made in a limited run of 100 vehicles.

Elsewhere, tachograph analysis specialist TruTac says it will launch a new digital signature capture feature at this year’s CV Show, which will “transform how operators debrief and manage their driver compliance requirements”.

Transport managers will have the ability to securely capture digital signatures during infringement debriefs and other documentation using eSignLive, it says, such as the driver’s letter, on mobile devices, tablets, laptops and PCs.

And vehicle CCTV specialist VisionTrack will be demonstrating its 3G telematics camera for the first time at the CV Show – with attendees being given a first-hand look at the new VT2000 device, which debuted in January and is capable of transmitting video footage using very low data capacity.

The company says fleet managers benefit from increased volumes of driving footage, aiding driver monitoring and training programmes and giving fast access to video and telemetry when an incident happens.
