November 14, 2017

Drive a lorry? Got a smartphone? If you're not using apps to make your life on the road easier, safer and more enjoyable, you're missing out. However, there are hundreds – if not thousands – of choices out there for Apple and Android phones, so how do you separate the incredibly useful from the inevitably useless?

3. 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 ...

4. 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. ...

5. 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)

7. What Kind of Driver Are You? Find Out Here!
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)

October 24, 2017

If you're a fleet manager dealing with vehicles over 3.5 tonnes gross vehicle weight (GVW), aerodynamics is not just an impressive term to drop at your next networking function. If your business depends on keeping haulage jobs profitable, it can be a life-changing word.

October 18, 2017

Digital technology has the potential to radically transform haulage work, and one of the latest developments to cause a buzz in the industry is the Tachograph Smart Card.

10. 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)

13. Tyre Management: Get it Right
September 27, 2017

One of the most important aspects of a fleet manager's job is monitoring the cost efficiency of their vehicles' tyres. For a medium to large haulage company, the cost of maintaining the fleet's tyres represents a major source of expenditure. It's estimated that 42% of medium to large truck fleets (those operating 51 or more vehicles) could be failing to achieve maximum cost efficiency from their tyres. PPK: A More Cost-Effective Way A spokesperson for Michelin Solutions, who offer tyre solutions to corporate fleets, says that many haulage company managers are still handling the purch...

14. UK Road Network Upgrades: What to Expect
September 27, 2017

This summer, the Government published a programme of planned upgrades to the UK road network which will cost £6.1 billion. As the Road Haulage Association has said, “the UK’s roads and motorways are a haulier’s workplace”. Projected improvements to the transport infrastructure that is a haulier’s office space are of utmost importance to us. Today, I’m going to take a closer look at the details of this new scheme and what it means for HGV drivers. The mentioned sum of money is going to be used to help create a new MRN, or major road network. In good news for hauliers, one aim of the schem... (read more)

September 27, 2017

With Brexit making daily headlines, the Irish border problem is recognised as one of particular importance and complexity. With the UK’s exit from the single market and the customs union on the horizon, the impact of a possible return to a ‘hard border’ on the haulage industry is worrying those involved in delivery work. The Current Situation Thanks to the Good Friday Agreement there are no security stops or checks along the 500km borderline between Northern Ireland and Ireland. Goods pass freely along the 250 roads which run through the boundary, making trade easy. In a recent... (read more)

19. Safety First: Essential First Aid Equipment for Lorry Drivers
September 18, 2017

When it comes to the issue of safety on the job, the haulage work industry is particularly vulnerable. As in any line of work, things can and do go wrong despite the most stringent safety measures, but the solitary nature of the job for many employees (i.e. lorry drivers) means it's even more important to be prepared for any eventuality. In the UK transport industry, there are strict requirements under the Health & Safety regulations (First Aid) of 1981, which state that employers must provide "adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to enable first aid to be given...

20. RHA Tackling the Confusion of Overnight Allowances
September 01, 2017

The issue of overnight allowances for long-distance lorry drivers is proving to be a contentious one that is starting to dominate headlines in transport industry news. The introduction of a new system for assessing ‘bespoke’ overnight allowances by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) in April this year left the Road Haulage Association (RHA) aghast by what it considered to be a damaging policy for the industry. Since then the RHA has been urging HMRC to make it clearer as to what exactly it expects from employers in terms of the evidence of costs. Following talks between representatives of bot...

some of the UK's talented female lorry drivers.

23. Hauling in the Pink
August 22, 2017

Pink is a colour usually reserved for little girls' bedrooms and feminine fashionistas. At the very least it's certainly not normally associated with the tough talking world of truck driving. But one young lady and her brand new hot pink Volvo FM tipper truck are putting an end to the stereotypes and turning heads all over the UK – all in a very good cause. Trucking in the Pink April Forder, who has a haulage contract to transport gravel and sand for the production of asphalt for AR & PA Transport in East Anglia, hit upon the idea for the striking hot pink wrap for her vehicle as a w...

August 22, 2017

A plan by the Government to improve the major road network by giving priority status to funding across a much wider range of roads and motorway projects has been welcomed by the haulage industry and those fulfilling transport contracts for a living. The Government has pledged to double the number of roads and motorways given priority funding once the plans have gone out to consultation later this year. In a parallel move, the Government has also said that the Vehicle Excise Duty will be used to fund the upkeep of highways, in an effort to improve the quality of the UK’s current road ...
