New technologies and vehicles that will shape the van fleets of the future are to debut at this spring’s Commercial Vehicle Show.
Taking place at the NEC Birmingham from Tuesday 28 April to Thursday 30 April, the 2020 event – which is once again free to attend – will boast more than 400 exhibitors across three halls.
Highlights from van manufacturers include the UK debuts of the Citroën e-Dispatch, Peugeot e-Expert and Vauxhall Vivaro-e trio of electric vans from PSA, while Toyota will show its Proace City compact van, which launches under its new Toyota Professional dedicated LCV brand.
LDV, which is now rebranding as Maxus, will have its all-new Deliver 9 and its new E Deliver 3 EV; both heralded as underpinning the brand’s transformation that’s prompted the branding change.
And LEVC will debut its new range-extender van, with work already underway on the first prototypes of the vehicle, which launches in Q4 and will provide a cleaner alternative to one-tonne medium-sized diesel vans for ‘distribution-to-door’ – not just last-mile – services.
From the supplier side, Trakm8 will showcase an array of products from its telematics offering, spotlighting how it can help transform and streamline fleet operations, and Jaama will display how its Key2 software enables businesses to operationally and strategically manage all commercial vehicles.
Finally, just over a year on from Bridgestone’s acquisition of TomTom Telematics – now rebranded as Webfleet Solutions – the CV Show will provide an important platform for the brands to team up and signpost how their joint fleet solutions ‘powerhouse’ can help operators drive efficiencies, realise cost-savings, reduce their carbon footprint and raise the bar in service delivery.
And with this year’s event marking the first CV Show since the UK officially left the EU, it will provide comprehensive guidance on how new legislation and a new trading relationship with Europe will affect every operator in almost every aspect of their business, thanks to a series of live theatre discussions.
New for 2020, these will see sector leaders, innovators and commentators talk about key industry issues throughout the three days of the show. The timetable and guest speakers for the live theatres will be announced in the coming month at www.cvshow.com.
