BPW to emphasise cost-effective fleet solutions at IAA Transportation

Later this month the BPW Group will meet transport and logistics partners at IAA Transportation in Hanover, Germany, to showcase its innovations.

BPW aims to follow up with hauliers, drivers, dispatchers, fleet managers and all relevant supply chain parties to demonstrate how its products and services can help overcome various challenges from disrupted trade routes to rising energy costs.

At its exhibition stand (Hall 26, A30), BPW will demonstrate how cost-effective its solutions are including litres of fuel saved, reduction in CO2 emissions and tyre wear and more.

For the first time, BPW is also presenting an online amortisation calculator which vehicle operators can use to individually work out the savings effects of various BPW solutions.

BPW is already supporting the EU program VECTO (Vehicle Energy Consumption Calculation Tool), which will be used to certify trailers on the basis of their CO2 emissions for the first time starting the middle of next year. It provides more transparency when purchasing a vehicle – and helps the vehicle operator to choose a more efficient vehicle.

BPW sees the efficiency gains achieved primarily as a joint effort, because hauliers, drivers, dispatchers, fleet managers and innovative industry partners are intensively involved in the development at BPW. That’s why BPW is devoting a lot of space at the IAA to reunions and exchanges of ideas with its partners: With its attractive catering area, the trade fair exhibition booth is set to become the meeting point for the entire industry. This is also a great way to experience and discuss the BPW Group’s trade fair innovations in an informal atmosphere.

These include the ‘ePower’ axle-driven generator, which generates energy when driving and braking and uses it to power cooling units, for example. The solution is being developed together with Thermo King and will be exhibited at IAA Transportation. The BPW subsidiary idem telematics presents new features of the market-leading telematics portal Cargofleet 3 – these include maintenance management and a tour monitor that allows the vehicle operator to play out selected data to partners without surrendering its data sovereignty. The new e-truck BAX with the electric axle drive eTransport from BPW can be admired in the outdoor area (Hall 11, stand number TD31) and can also be test driven upon prior registration.

“In the company’s nearly 125 years of history, BPW has always successfully overcome challenging times together with its partners,” said Thore Bakker, General Manager Business Unit Trailer Solution & Mobility Services at BPW Bergische Achsen KG.

“This solidarity, this team spirit, is very special – and we want it to stay a part of us as we continue to drive innovations for more efficiency in transport in the future.

“I’m looking forward to the reunion and the discussions at IAA Transportation.”

In other news, transport refrigeration system supplier, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Thermal Transport Europe (MTTE), and idem telematics have enhanced digital monitoring technology to boost vehicle uptime and predictive maintenance.
