In two years, eCommerce supply chain specialists Trucklink.EU have grown their fleet from 15 trucks to more than 40 trucks at peak. While this rapid growth is welcomed, the company’s admin tasks, and compliance management have become increasingly time-consuming and challenging to manage.
Managing Tachograph files was a key factor in this, as the job can be a huge logistical challenge and admin burden on fleet and compliance managers. Because of this, Trucklink.EU felt they needed to invest in a reliable, innovative compliance solution.
Trucklink.EU has benefitted from the Tachograph Download solution from Connexas, part of AddSecure, as the solution removes the need for manually collecting tachograph files. By minimising the risk of human error and automising processes, Trucklink.EU can continue to operate within compliance rules, avoid fines, and not become overwhelmed with admin tasks.
