2. Long-Distance Love: Valentine's Day Tips for Lorry Drivers
January 22, 2018

Being a lorry driver is not your regular job. So, if you're out on the road all week at odd hours doing haulage jobs and earning the readies to bring home the bacon, you really can't be expected to keep up the romance, right? Wrong. Just because you're not physically there every night, you’re not let off the romantic hook if you've got a partner who’s keeping the home and family fires burning. And neither should it.

5. Fend Off Fires: A Lorry Driver's Guide to Safety Equipment
January 22, 2018

Let’s start 2018 the right way: safely. As I’m sure you know, trucks are fire hazards and, when you’re working haulage jobs, it’s crucial for lorry drivers like yourselves to prepare for fire safety in your vehicles. You don’t want to lose your truck or its cargo to the flames! The Legal Requirements First things first, here’s a quick reminder of the legal requirements concerning fire safety: when carrying out haulage jobs, you must always carry a 2kg extinguisher in your truck. You should also know that the heavier your vehicle, the bigger the extinguisher required. If your lorry is... (read more)

6. Freight Forwarding Post Brexit: Customs
December 18, 2017

With the impending onset of Brexit, the landscape of the transport industry is set for some inevitable changes, particularly affecting freight forwarders who manage European haulage contracts. But industry experts have voiced concerns that the UK government has been in denial about how customs procedures will be affected, and believe that they should already have infrastructure underway to avoid not only huge delays, but also increased costs to shippers and the public. Recently, however, HMRC has shifted gear slightly, admitting that there's a possibility that inland depots may need to b... (read more)

8. Tackle Haulage Shortages for a Happy Holiday
December 18, 2017

It’s time to shine a new light on something that’s too often portrayed as a crisis. As I’m sure you know, the haulage industry has been experiencing a drivers’ shortage in recent years. Of course, this shortage is heightened around Christmas as demand increases and drivers are off on holiday, but rather than seeing it as something stressful and negative, I want you to look at it as an opportunity. Just think about it: if other freight forwarders are struggling to meet demands, your company can pick up the slack and get more delivery work. I know that this may be easier said than done, but wi... (read more)

12. Stop Press: Safety Permit Scheme Coming in 2020
December 11, 2017

The start of the Mayor of London’s consultation on a Safety Permit Scheme for HGVs in the capital has been met with a mixed response by the Freight Transport Association (FTA), the UK’s biggest transport trade association which campaigns for the rights of drivers involved in haulage jobs. The consultation was launched on 16 November, with the new scheme acting as a revision to the original Direct Vision Standard, which had been criticised by the FTA for using direct vision from a driver’s cab as the only criterion for determining whether a permit would be issued or not. Under the origina... (read more)

December 11, 2017

Bedfordshire Haulage Ltd provided security support to the veterans marching in this year’s Armistice Day parade.

17. The Key to a Happy and Healthy Haulier
November 14, 2017

Anyone working for haulage companies as a long-distance lorry driver knows just how easy it can be to neglect one's health. With the plethora of fast food on offer, the temptation is simply to pull over to road services, grab something fast and fatty and keep driving. Combined with the largely sedentary nature of the job, it doesn't take long to fall into bad habits and suffer health consequences. The good news is that working for haulage companies and maintaining good health don't need to be mutually exclusive. Good Food, Good Sense In a perfect world, every time we head out on the ...

18. Spoiler Alert: Improving Your Fleet's Aerodynamics
October 24, 2017

Making something more aerodynamic (which can be described as "creating a shape that reduces the drag of air moving past") can be useful in an array of situations and commercial engineering applications. Within the transport industry, particularly for those doing haulage jobs, it is being increasingly recognised as a particularly desirable factor. For medium to large transport companies whose bread and butter involves carrying out a high volume of work, ensuring that fleet vehicles are performing optimally in terms of their aerodynamic styling is of key importance to maximising profits. ...

19. Have a Compliant Christmas: Your Driver Checklist
October 24, 2017

It's no surprise that the impending Christmas period is the busiest time of the year for the delivery industry. Many haulage companies are faced with the need to employ casual drivers for eight to ten weeks to cope with the extra demand, but taking on temporary staff doesn't come without its headaches. Compliance is King With lots of drivers looking to earn some extra cash and fleet managers under the pump to keep operations running smoothly, it's all too easy to overlook the usual protocols when it comes to recruitment. But for those tempted to take shortcuts with driver checks and... (read more)

October 24, 2017

The haulage and logistics industry has felt the effects of our changing world and economies as much as any other industry. However, the demand for the process itself remains steady, which means reliable, consistent and somewhat lucrative job prospects for skilled workers. Drivers these days are also fortunate enough to have many choices regarding the type of haulage work they choose. Many are tempted by the greater income potential and freedoms of freelance jobs over contracted assignments. However, there are pros and cons for each scenario, so it simply comes down to which one you prefer. ... (read more)

24. Logistics Industry Embraces Brexit's Transition Period
October 18, 2017

I come with exciting (and hopefully relieving) news this month. In her recent speech in Florence, Theresa May suggested delaying a full Brexit until 2021. Instead, she’s in favour of implementing a two-year transition period, during which all free-trade agreements would be maintained. This is great news for the transport industry, as it would give haulage companies and freight forwarders more time to put new policies and procedures in place and maintain steady trade after Britain leaves the European Union. Why is the Transition Period Important? In case you are wondering how this tra... (read more)
