FTA launches new tacho reporting service at CVO Show

Tuesday 13 April 2010

The Freight Transport Association will be launching its new online tachograph reporting suite, the Reporting Gateway, at the Commercial Vehicle Operator Show (13–15 April).

FTA’s new online Reporting Gateway, which will be demonstrated on the FTA stand, is the ultimate tool for the management of drivers’ hours and tachograph compliance and is free to all Tachofta customers.

The interactive suite provides a range of reports from a high level overview of the company, to compliance by depot, and even to the daily detail of each individual driver. Six high level reports are available which can then be broken down into numerous other reports for even greater detail. The service will help reduce the risk of infringements, prioritise business decisions, provide flexibility and save valuable time.

June Powell, General Manager of Tachofta, said:

“This new interactive reporting suite is a real-time, online service which eliminates any delay in reports being sent, ensuring that the information is always completely up-to-date and making it quick and easy to pinpoint any infringements. Visitors to the FTA stand will be able to see for themselves how the system works and the enormous benefits it can offer.”

Visitors to the FTA stand will also have the chance to win a TomTom GO 7000 truck navigation unit if they place an order through Shopfta. The TomTom unit helps trucks avoid narrow roads, low bridges and unsuitable routes, and the offer is valid on all orders from any of Shopfta’s product ranges until the end of May.

FTA’s Member Advice Centre will be giving free best practice briefings on the stand, offering advice and information on efficient driver walk-around checks and effective management of agency drivers.

A new FTA Driver CPC guide will also be available to visitors to the FTA stand.

Further information on Tachofta is available from the FTA Member Service Centre on 08717 11 22 22.
