Renault Trucks is presenting its Optifuel Solutions, designed to reduce Diesel vehicles' consumption, as well as its Clean Tech offering of vehicles running on alternative energies (electricity, hybrid and CNG), at the second "ECO, Transport and Logistics" tradeshow. This event, focused on environmental technologies for the world of transport, is being organised as part of the International Transport and Logistics Week (SITL), taking place from 27 to 30 March at Villepinte.
In response to the environmental challenge road haulage is now facing, Renault Trucks offers customers a whole range of solutions to reduce its vehicles' environmental impact. These concern both its Diesel vehicles - with Optifuel Solutions - and its vehicles running on alternative energies covered by the Clean Tech label. It is these two major tracks which will are being given a high profile during the upcoming edition of the ECO, Transport and Logistics show which is taking place in Villepinte, to the north of Paris, from 27 to 30 March 2012. Visitors can find Renault Trucks on stand E 22 in Hall 6.
Via its interactive terminals, they can find out all about the manufacturer's Clean Tech range. This label is given to vehicles that are all-electric (Maxity Electric), hybrid (Premium Distribution Hybrys Tech) or run on natural gas (Premium Distribution CNG).
The stand is also presenting Optifuel Solutions. These cover the various tools Renault Trucks offers to reduce fuel consumption. They include Optifuel Programme, which is made up of two additional elements: training in economic driving (Optifuel Training) and software for measuring and analysing consumption (Optifuel Infomax). An additional Optifuel Solutions tool is Optifleet, the Renault Trucks on-board IT solution for fleet monitoring and management. In particular, by using geo-localisation and real-time truck tracking, Optifleet enables hauliers to increase their profitability while at the same time reducing operational costs and improving their own customers' satisfaction.
Finally, as part of its ongoing efforts to constantly do more to meet drivers' needs, Renault Trucks helps them on a day-to-day basis via its Smartphone applications: NavTruck, the special HGV dedicated GPS system, Time Book, the truck driver's logbook for the 21st century and Deliver Eye, the application which can be used to send geo-tagged photographs. This enables drivers to carry out their assignments with greater efficiency, an objective which will be retained for all future applications. Demonstrations of these tools as well as the truck racing simulation video game, Renault Trucks Racing, are available for consultation on the terminals at the show.
