App will help hauliers to move from BRONZE to SILVER FORS membership
London, 18 May 2017
TomTom Telematics and transport management software specialist OBS Logistics have joined forces to create a new vehicle checking solution for haulage and logistics operators, helping to capture accurate information for Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) and Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) compliance records.
The CALIDUS VEhub mobile app helps drivers to check blind spot indicators, cameras, tyres and fuel quickly and efficiently on TomTom PRO 8275 TRUCK driver terminals. It was developed using the TomTom Telematics .connect API and works in tandem with the WEBFLEET fleet management system.
The combined solution can be easily configured to help meet a wide range of needs, including signature capture, paperless delivery notes, automatic allocations and route templates, while also helping to reduce costly empty running.
Designed to help fleet operators to move from BRONZE to SILVER membership of FORS, the app is currently available on a three-month delayed payment1 basis for FORS members.
‘Ensuring companies can improve compliance and effectively manage their fleets is at the heart of what we do and we are pleased to be supporting FORS and its members to help them do this better,’ said Matthew Turner, Head of Extended Transport Solutions at OBS Logistics. ‘With our software, FORS members can better plan, execute and monitor their transport operations to help make them even more efficient, and, crucially, safety compliant.’
FORS promotes operational best practice through a focus on safety, efficiency and environmental protection. OBS Logistics, together with 85 further FORS Associates, provide members with discounted products and services, alongside a raft of further benefits that come with FORS accreditation.
Paul Wilkes, FORS Business Services Manager commented: ‘It is important for FORS members to understand how to manage their logistics in the most efficient way to help them save time as well as money. The app offers fleets a simple and effective solution to help them improve operational efficiency and safety.’
‘Creating a paperless audit trail for vehicle safety is a key priority for haulage and logistics operators looking to protect both their drivers and their reputation and that's exactly what this app offers,’ added Beverley Wise, Director UK and Ireland at TomTom Telematics.
1 Customers signing up to a 39 month contract will receive the first three months of the service free and will only have to start paying in month four.
