Gloucestershire-based waste and recycling company Valley Trading has signed up to r2c's connected fleet and workshop management platform for vehicle compliance and maintenance.

Michael Kent, transport manager at Valley Trading, explained what drew them to r2c's digital platform: 'We wanted to increase efficiency and compliance across our fleet and on-site workshop. We often misplaced paperwork or found it hard to read, which, in today's world of ever-increasing compliance regulations, we knew just wasn't good enough anymore'

'We also faced low-efficiency within our workshop with regards to defect rectification, which needed to improve to cater for our expanding fleet as the business continues to grow'

Valley Trading chose r2c Online's connected platform for centralised vehicle compliance and maintenance data, with real-time fleet and workshop collaboration to help improve efficiency and compliance levels.

The software will be implemented across the business, from daily driver checks to the transport office to technicians in the workshop, for full digital management of their mixed fleet of specialist waste vehicles including grabbers, tippers and articulated vehicles.

'The biggest benefit for us will be the efficiencies r2c can offer the whole business,â€
