DAF Trucks reveals Remote Tacho Download

DAF Trucks

DAF Trucks has revealed a new function for its DAF Connect fleet management platform - Remote Tacho Download - which allows transport operators to read, store and analyse driver cards and tachographs online and in real time.

It can be added as an app to the DAF Connect dashboard, the online fleet management platform that monitors the performance of vehicles, fleets and drivers in real time.

The new application, says DAF, offers fast, comprehensive access to the full range of tacho information available from connected vehicles and their drivers.

DAF Connect manager Jorg Wijnands said: “Maintaining an accurate record of driver cards and the tachograph’s memory is very labour intensive and prone to error.

“You can end up paying thousands of euros for each instance of inaccurate bookkeeping.

“The transport operator can also monitor its trucks and drivers constantly to ensure that they are complying with driving and rest period guidelines and to intervene where necessary.

“This offers a greater sense of security in terms of road safety and the risk of fines.”

DAF Trucks has production facilities in the Netherlands, Belgium, UK and in Brazil, with service points across Europe.

Recently, DAF Apprentice Mathew Hands, from DAF Dealer Brian Currie in Bedford, emerged victorious at the national WorldSkills UK National Final at the NEC, winning a gold medal.
