2. Turn Up the Tunes with the Best Radio for the Road
March 29, 2018

We all know that haulage work has its benefits, but nobody will deny that it also involves long hours and little human interaction. Shut up in your vehicle for miles on end, you might be searching for some way to entertain yourself – after all, ‘I Spy’ is a two-player game! There are many leisure activities that are impractical – and totally illegal – to indulge in on the road. I’m talking a quiet pint (absolutely not), a tricky crossword (far too distracting) or chatting on the phone (very dangerous). Thankfully, there are safe ways to keep yourself alert and entertained during your dri... (read more)

Recently, fleet, finance and business managers across the country were surveyed on the tricky topic of telematics, allowing us to uncover once and for all why this tool is so beneficial to the logistics industry. 1.

7. Why Every Lorry Driver Needs a Sat Nav
March 19, 2018

Recently, GPSs have become invaluable tools for haulage companies. They take your HGV’s specifications into consideration and provide real-time traffic details to help make delivery work an easier and more cost-effective process. What is a Satellite Navigation System? Using three satellites, Sat Navs detect your geographical position and calculate the best routes to get you from your current location to your desired destination. They provide, as you well know, step-by-step directions in real time. While it can be tempting to use smartphones as GPSs, hauliers shouldn’t rely on G... (read more)

March 19, 2018

You probably remember the buzz around Tesla last autumn, which is when the company announced its prototype electric heavy goods vehicle that would make delivery work more environmentally friendly. With production beginning in 2019 and many UK haulage companies pre-ordering these vehicles, it’s best to familiarize yourself with the ins and outs of Tesla’s battery-powered trucks. You might be behind the wheel of one of these lorries sooner than you think! How Well Does It Perform? When carrying out delivery work, one of the biggest concerns is staying on schedule.

9. The Proof is in the Pudding: Refining your Haulage Recipe
February 27, 2018

The Great British Bake Off is one of the nation’s favourite television programmes. We love to settle down on the sofa with a cup of tea and a biscuit and watch the drama and delights of the kitchen unfold before us. However, what would the programme be like if it were called ‘The Great British Freight Off’? Delivery work is not short of drama, and to me it always appears to be a carefully balanced recipe.

February 27, 2018

Unfortunately, collisions are part and parcel of delivery work. As all fleet managers know, accidents do happen. The most important thing is being prepared for them when they do. Though lots of haulage companies prefer to engage a specialist accident management firm, you might have decided that the best thing for your company is to deal with the consequences of collisions in-house. However, you need to ask yourself, are you doing enough to prevent the unseen consequences of a crash? Here is my step-by-step guide to what to do following an accident in order to protect both your company and your... (read more)

11. It's All in the Eyes: Improving Road Safety
February 20, 2018

Road safety is a subject that’s close to the hearts of anyone involved in haulage work. Any innovations or road projects are watched with close interest, so fleet managers and HGV drivers have welcomed the news of Highways England's implementation of a programme to install "intelligent" cat's eyes in one of the busiest junctions in the country. The LED cat's eyes are already in place in the Hindhead Tunnel in Surrey, but the latest programme (which is part of a £3-million project to improve safety at the junction of three A roads and the M57 and M58 at Switch Island, Merseyside) is the fi...

February 20, 2018

The future is mobile. By 2025, an estimated 80 billion mobile devices will be connected to the internet, which is four times as many as we have today. This is a trend that will impact every aspect of our lives and revolutionise the way in which haulage companies do business. Currently in the UK, almost half of fleet drivers and operators use mobile devices to handle haulage operations. This is also a growing trend in Europe, where 41 percent of fleet industry experts believe that apps have a positive role in managing fleets.

14. Latest Brexit Developments: Support for UK Hauliers
February 20, 2018

As all owner operators know, it is becoming more and more obvious that the freedom of commercial haulage needs to be protected as the UK slowly moves towards Brexit. At the beginning of February, the UK government introduced legislation on cross-border haulage, which aims to prepare them for potential changes to current systems. I am going to break down the new Haulage Permits and Trailer Registration Bill to discover what it is and what it means for the industry. What is the Haulage Permits and Trailer Registration Bill?

19. 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.

23. 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)

25. 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.
