Volvo Trucks Updates Dynafleet

Volvo's system for transport information Dynafleet has been upgraded, now incorporating the Tachograph Download function which ensures that all information from the digital tachograph is automatically transferred via the Internet to the transport manager. The function is intended for the latest generation digital tachographs that support remote downloading.

"With Tachograph Download the haulage firm always has access to up-to-date information about driver times and the way the truck is being driven," says Pascal Claes, product manager of Dynafleet at Volvo Trucks. "All information is continuously saved and then stored for a predetermined period of time on the haulage firm's private space on the Dynafleet server. This reduces the need for administration and makes it easier to meet legislative requirements."

Data transfer takes place entirely without any manual input. All the driver needs to do is to insert his regular driver's card into the digital tachograph. The haulage firm decides how often it wants the data to be transmitted from the truck to the office.

In order for the haulage firm to access the information, it needs a card reader and a card with a code that is linked to the company. This prevents unauthorised access to the data. Since Dynafleet has been designed from the ground up as a pan-European system, all the relevant communication costs are included in the subscription fee.

"Tachograph Download is yet another reason for choosing Dynafleet, since the customer gets an integrated system that has better control and makes it easier to run a cost-effective operation,"
adds Pascal Claes.
