Wiehl, 31/08/2022 --- The BPW Group develops its solutions for the transport and logistics industry in close cooperation with hauliers, drivers, dispatchers, fleet managers and innovative industry partners. BPW is focusing on this special bond at the IAA Transportation in Hanover: the BPW exhibition stand in Hall 26 is set to become the meeting point for the transport industry.
Economies all over Europe are suffering from rising energy prices, disrupted trade routes and the consequences of the war in Ukraine. The BPW Group is therefore deliberately avoiding the usual trade fair glitter at IAA Transportation and is focusing on the cost-effectiveness of its solutions: every exhibit on the BPW exhibition booth (Hall 26, A30) will be backed by specific facts and figures – in litres of fuel saved, reduced CO2 emissions and tyre wear, which are key drivers of cost efficiency and thus determine the added value of transport.
For the first time, BPW is also presenting an online amortisation calculator which vehicle operators can use to individually work out the savings effects of various BPW solutions. BPW is already supporting the EU programme VECTO (Vehicle Energy Consumption Calculation Tool), which will be used to certify trailers on the basis of their CO2 emissions for the first time starting the middle of next year. It provides more transparency when purchasing a vehicle – and helps the vehicle operator to choose a more efficient vehicle.
BPW sees the efficiency gains achieved primarily as a joint effort, because hauliers, drivers, dispatchers, fleet managers and innovative industry partners are intensively involved in the development at BPW. That's why BPW is devoting a lot of space at the IAA to reunions and exchanges of ideas with its partners: With its attractive catering area, the trade fair exhibition booth is set to become the meeting point for the entire industry. This is also a great way to experience and discuss the BPW Group's trade fair innovations in an informal atmosphere.
These include the "ePower" axle-driven generator, which generates energy when driving and braking and uses it to power cooling units, for example. The solution is being developed together with Thermo King and will be exhibited at IAA Transportation. The BPW subsidiary idem telematics presents new features of the market-leading telematics portal Cargofleet 3 - these include maintenance management and a tour monitor that allows the vehicle operator to play out selected data to partners without surrendering its data sovereignty. The new e-truck BAX with the electric axle drive eTransport from BPW can be admired in the outdoor area (Hall 11, stand number TD31) and can also be test driven upon prior registration at drive.bax.de.
Thore Bakker, General Manager Business Unit Trailer Solution & Mobility Services at BPW Bergische Achsen KG remarks: "In the company's nearly 125 years of history, BPW has always successfully overcome challenging times together with its partners. This solidarity, this team spirit, is very special – and we want it to stay a part of us as we continue to drive innovations for more efficiency in transport in the future. I'm looking forward to the reunion and the discussions at IAA Transportation."
