Calender image for January

Night shift.

While everyone else is sleeping, a few people are out there ensuring that our daily life proceeds without hitches or shortages.

Mercedes-Benz pays tribute to these night-time heroes with a unique calendar. In 12 fascinating images we show the tough "daily" routines of night workers - and the vehicles that help them to do their jobs.

Emptied streets, strong wind and harsh weather, a jet black sky and glaring headlamps - the night provides a unique feeling to each image. We capture those moods and shed light on a world that would otherwise remain hidden to most people.

The 2014 commercial vehicle calendar as a screensaver

As in previous years, the Commercial Vehicle Calendar for 2014 is also available as a screensaver. It displays all twelve black & white images as a slide show, but can also be set to display the current image for the month permanently – or simply just your favourite image. Apart from the conventional function of protecting the screen, the PC version of the 2014 Calendar features an appointment calendar function. With it you can record, edit and display private or work-related appointments. The screensaver can be launched manually via a commercial vehicle calendar icon on the desktop in order to access the appointment-calendar view. You can then access the appointment itself by clicking on the desired day in the week or month view.

How to install the screensaver:

PC: Double-clicking on the .EXE file generated from the previously downloaded ZIP file starts an assistant that will guide you through the installation step by step. After the successful installation the screensaver is active.

Mac: download file, double-click the icon and then follow instructions. The screensaver is activated automatically.
