Stirling Council upgrades fleet to latest digital tachograph technology
VDO signed the deal with Jon Jeffress, fleet & training coordinator at Stirling Council, to supply 21 digital tachographs with the VDO Wide Range Data Downloading equipment.
Mr Jeffress commented: 'We identified we needed to be running a very tight control on our fleet of vehicles at Stirling Council and had been investigating a number of different ideas. We decided that by replacing our existing tachograph units with the VDO Digital tachograph 1.3a units we would get an excellent deal with the new VOSA approved remote downloading technology. This means that the data can be transmitted via GPRS wherever the vehicle is in the County. A wonderful time-saving device that eliminates the need for manual downloads and allows the regional depot personnel to complete other tasks.'
The vehicles are be installed with the equipment by VDO distributor MTH Auto Services Ltd in Falkirk.
