If you want to keep your finger on the pulse of the latest developments in UK road transport and logistics, then visiting the Commercial Vehicle Show 2017 (“The CV Show”) at the NEC Birmingham between the 25th and 27th April 2017 is essential. This is the largest show of its kind in the UK. The organisers expect visitor numbers to surpass the 20,000 delegates who enjoyed last year’s CV Show and already have over 400 exhibitors signed-up including TIP Trailer Services. Admission for visitors is free.
Every aspect of the UK transport sector will be featured including truck, trailer, van and fork lift truck manufacturers as well as services that fleet managers can benefit from. These include; insurance, logistics, tyres, telematics, fuel and lubricant suppliers together with training organisations.
Thinking of trailers.. think of TIP
Make the most of CV Show 2017 by meeting the TIP Trailer Services UK and Ireland team on Stand 5C80. We have trailers on display throughout the exhibition from curtainsiders through to tankers and other specialist products. TIP can supply you with rental and leasing products combined with maintenance services from nineteen locations throughout the UK and Ireland, with a further seventy locations throughout continental Europe.
Test the moving floor trailer
As well as making significant investments in the curtainsider, van, chassis and refrigerated fleets, TIP has been busy growing its ‘specialist trailer’ business, particularly in the ‘moving floor’ trailer sector. At this year’s show they will have a Legras FMA15 ‘general purpose’ moving floor trailer on display at the outside exhibition area, adjacent to Hall 5 (and accessible from within the show halls). In conjunction with the leading moving floor trailer manufacturer, TIP will be available to offer product expertise, together with advice regarding the rental, leasing, funding and maintenance of moving floor trailers.
The CV Show 2017 is the perfect opportunity to discuss how TIP can help you maximise the returns on your trailer fleet management in a relaxed environment. To find out how TIP Trailer Services can add value to your trailer fleet management, please follow the link.
There are two special zones that will be of particular interest to many visitors.
If keeping your vehicles running at maximum efficiency is important to you, do visit the Workshop zone. It will display everything from OE components and replacement parts to maintenance management systems, garage, workshop and bodyshop equipment.
For those who transport goods in a temperature-controlled environment, do drop by and visit the Cool zone. You will find refrigerated vehicle and bodywork companies, alongside the latest fridge units, monitoring equipment and other products specific to cold chain operations.
Enjoy a Tweet with your espresso
Among the innovations for 2017 are two Twitter lounges – cafes where visitors can relax over a coffee and read tweets posted using the hashtag #cvshow2017.
The Year of the Comeback
CV Show Director, Rob Skelton, said, “We’re delighted to see DAF, MAN and Iveco via Guest Trucks returning to the CV Show in 2017. Heavy trucks are a vital part of the freight and logistics industry in the UK and their presence adds a real attraction to the Show.”
New product launches
Everyone enjoys being among the first to see new products up close. The CV Show 2017 will provide its visitors with numerous opportunities to check out new launches. Exhibitors are already featuring in the press, trumpeting the products that they will unveil at the CV Show. Examples include TIP offering advice on the new Earned Recognition scheme promoted by the DVSA, which will see operators rewarded with fewer compliance checks in return for access to tachograph and maintenance data. Tachograph specialist TruTach is re-launching its tachograph analysis system TruControl as TruAnalysis, with new compliance software including TruDocument and eSignLive.
