Remote Control Technology Signals The Future Of Powerday’s Fleet
25th August 2015
Powerday has seen its vision of the urban vehicle of the future come to life having taken delivery of a lorry that features remote control technology, a four-camera ‘live streaming’ monitoring system and filled-in side-underrun protection. This new addition to its fleet is designed to a bespoke specification that keeps Powerday at the forefront of environmental and safety standards in the Capital.
The remote control technology operates the skip loading equipment via a wireless mechanism that allows the driver to position themselves where they have all-round vision of the operation rather than just one view from the side of the vehicle, providing greater safety for the driver and others in the vicinity.
Having taken delivery of the Euro 6 DAF vehicle with a Hyva skip-loader body in May, Transport Manager, Bill Cox says: “We are committed to best practice in the management of our fleet, particularly with regards to safety and environmental responsibility. This purchase not only sets the standard for the next generation of Powerday’s vehicles but also for other transport and logistics operators in central London.”
Powerday holds a gold accreditation for the Freight Operators Recognition Scheme run by Transport for London and is certified as a CLOCS Champion for its commitment to improving road safety for vulnerable road users.
We were pleased to have awarded this contract to Powerday. They have delivered their services efficiently and reliably, achieved high recycling rates and 100% recovery, meeting our requirements throughout the project. They have been easy to deal with, reasonable and fair. We have been particularly impressed with their account management and waste reporting capabilities
