Commercialmotor.com offers free webinar all about smart tachographs

Commercialmotor.com is running a free webinar in assocation with Aquarius, which will explain everything you need to know about the introduction of smart tachographs this month.

Next month sees the biggest change in tachograph legislation in 12 years, with the introduction of the new generation of on-board, mandatory digital recorders to enforce drivers’ hours rules.

This one-hour webinar, held in conjunction with tachograph analysis specialist Aquarius on Tuesday 18 June at 2pm, will explain more.

Those taking part in the event, will hear how roadside enforcement will evolve after the law change, what geo-positioning of smart tachographs means for operators, and how smart tachograph technology will tie into the DVSA’s earned recognition.

New UK boss for IVECO

IVECO has announced that Sascha Kaehne, a 44-year-old German, has been appointed as the new business director for the UK and Ireland.

Kaehne takes over the top job at IVECO’s UK headquarters in Basildon with immediate effect, replacing Stuart Webster, who has left IVECO to pursue other interests. He is moving from the same position at IVECO EMEA Heavy Trucks, based in Madrid, which he has occupied since 2017. Before that he spent four years as managing director of IVECO Trucks Germany. Kaehne is familiar with the UK, having undertaken an MBA at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh.

Kaehne says: “I’m in the enviable position of taking on this new role at a key moment for IVECO, just weeks following the international launch of our New Daily light commercial vehicle, and as we prepare to unveil our new heavy truck range this summer. The next few months promise to be very exciting; and I’m looking forward to capitalising on my heavy truck background to maximise all opportunities in this major market.”
