CALIDUS VEhub in TomTom telematics device


We have always prided ourselves on our vehicle safety processes in relation to DVSA and FORS and the CALIDUS VEhub solution is helping us ensure compliance

Forterra asked if OBS Logistics, in conjunction with TomTom Telematics, could supply an electronic DVSA compliant vehicle check process. In addition, as a FORS member, Forterra also wanted to see if FORS vehicle check items such as ‘is camera working’, could be electronically captured in the same process.

“Our drivers have found the CALIDUS VEhub app from OBS Logistics to be really easy to use, and it has helped us to become more effective and efficient with our vehicle check reporting and management. We have always prided ourselves on our vehicle safety processes in relation to DVSA and FORS and the CALIDUS VEhub solution is helping us ensure compliance,” said Dale Clarke, Forterra’s National Transport Manager.

The solution has allowed Forterra to check the time and location of Vehicle checks in the fleet through GPS positioning. Forterra transport managers are automatically informed of any defect recorded, and are able to close off defects reported by recording when the rectification or repair is carried out.

The last vehicle check performed on the tablet is also available if DVSA pull over any of the fleet for a spot check.

The solution is deployed on the TomTom Pro 8275, a ruggedised driver terminal that can be customised for industry or company specific workflows.
