Welcome to Aztec Media Services

Who we are

Aztec Media Services Ltd is a Surrey, UK-based publishing and communications organisation, specialising in road transport and engineering.

What we do

We deliver top-quality publishing and communications services including research, writing, editing, design, production, publishing management, advertisement design and sales. We specialise in reports and magazines (online and printed) focused on European and global transport and engineering, and have close links with other publications distributed worldwide.

Our multi-award-winning monthly online magazine, Commercial Vehicle Engineer, offers a unique combination of news, analysis and independent, hard-hitting comment on the commercial vehicle market and aftermarket. It is aimed in particular at road transport engineers and fleet managers in UK-based fleets of trucks, light commercial vehicles, buses and coaches but is well-read by commercial vehicle engineers worldwide.

The CV Engineer app for Apple and Android tablets and smartpones, sponsored by DAF Trucks, is free to download. 

 

MAY 2018 CV ENGINEER

 

We take a closer look at all the latest evidence of how bus and coach electric driveline technology is finding its way into trucks. Daf Trucks has teamed up with a bus and coach manufacturing neighbour, VDL Group, to unveil a battery-powered CF two-axle tractor plated for 40 tonnes gross combination weight and said to have a maximum range of 100km. Spanish coach manufacturer Irizar meanwhile has announced its plan to enter the truck market for the first time next year with an eye-catching three-axle truck employing a battery-electric driveline which is already familiar to many coach and bus operators across Europe. Even more futuristic in appearance is the Shell Lubricants-backed Starship rig on a fully-freighted coast-to-coast trial in the US this month. Yet it is powered not by any electric motor but by a Cummins 15-litre diesel engine. Where does all this leave fleet engineers planning vehicle acquisition policies for maybe the next five years? Good question. We try to answer it.

We also report from the latest annual Federation of Petroleum Suppliers show in Liverpool, where government consultation on a “clean growth strategy” was causing a few furrowed brows among operators specialising in heating oil distribution.
People in the news this month include TRL boss Rob Wallis, speaking at the latest Microlise transport conference about the UK’s platooning trial but leaving many fleet engineers and transport managers still puzzled and unconvinced. Far more credible are MAN’s plans to recover lost ground in the European truck market, especially the UK. We hear from the new senior management team at MAN Truck & Bus.

There is news too of the 2019 Trailer Innovation awards scheme, a golden opportunity for inventive engineers in the trailer and bodywork sector to get the recognition they deserve, across Europe.
