This year’s CV Show takes place from 30th April to 2nd May – and is set to be the best yet. It is designed to keep commercial fleet operators up to date with all the industry’s latest product and service innovations.
You can find exactly what you’re interested in with the CV Show’s distinct zones. These include the ‘Cool Zone’ for refrigerated vehicles, ‘Workshop’ for supplies and parts and two vast manufacturer and supplier spaces.
March 2019 was the strongest month ever for new van registrations in the UK, according to SMMT, so it’s no surprise there will be many new models launched at the CV Show. These include the new Vauxhall Vivaro, Ford Ranger, 2.0-tonne Transit and LDV EV30.
Tech on show
It is undoubtedly the year of the ‘connected van’ and you’ll see in-cab connectivity, telematics, driver monitoring and real-time analytics all on display. This includes LeasePlan’s UPtime Live – a system that proactively manages maintenance, repair, servicing and scheduling – and My Vehicle Check, a compliance app that lets drivers complete daily safety checks from their phones.
Green van man
Alternative fuels are expected to have a strong presence at the CV Show, as manufacturers will want to showcase their green credentials, while operators will be interested in finding out more about the technology and its benefits.
Compliance, compliance, compliance
Compliance is only going to get tougher for operators, so the recent announcement of the LeasePlan and FORS partnership couldn’t have come at a better time. You can speak with our team about our new service that supplies vans to help meet the FORS accreditation requirements.
It’s good to talk
Our team will also be on hand to help with other compliance issues and give you ideas for vehicle sourcing, funding solutions and improving business efficiency. You can find us in hall 5, stand 5C60.
