27. HMRC Offers a No-Deal Helping Hand to Hauliers
April 11, 2019


Whatever your views might be on Brexit, uncertainty over the terms of the UK’s departure from the European Union is undoubtedly bad for business across the country. Haulage companies in particular stand to face significant issues. A ‘no-deal’ exit, which would see the UK-EU relationship shift to World Trade Organization (WTO) terms, could change the system of customs checks goods have to go through literally overnight, creating delays and jams at ports of entry. Still, there are plenty of reasons to remain positive about the situation. The government is not ignoring these concerns, with ... (read more)

28. DPD and TfL Join Forces to Plan the Future of Logistics
April 11, 2019


Most haulage companies understand the importance of flexibility. On top of the standard pressures businesses face, like keeping costs low, the transport sector also deals with a fast-changing regulatory environment, spurred on by ecological concerns. There are few places where this is more evident than in London. Over the next few years, the UK capital aims to bring in some game changing measures. But, don’t worry, it’s not all doom and gloom. Top delivery firm DPD is already working well with Transport for London (TfL), pointing a way forwards for the logistics industry. TfL’s Pla... (read more)

April 11, 2019


No matter how good a driver you think you are (ok, that you know you are), there’s not a person in the world that couldn’t benefit from some advice on how to be a better one. Even if driving seems like second nature to you, if you’re involved in a career doing courier jobs it’s all too easy to fall into complacency and bad habits when you’re out on the roads so much.

31. FTA Looks for Support on the Black Route
April 09, 2019


As champions of the UK logistics industry, the FTA (Freight Transport Association) provides a much-needed voice to the government on behalf of the sector. The association carries out vital on-going work that benefits the haulage industry and one of its latest campaigns has been a call to the Welsh Assembly Members, asking them to put pressure on the First Minister to endorse plans for the M4 ‘Black Route’.

32. New Rules for Trailer Registration for UK Hauliers Heading to Europe
April 09, 2019


For any HGV drivers that travel to Europe to do haulage work, the fact that a new ruling on the registration of trailers has recently come into effect is extremely important. At the end of March 2019, the UK ratified the UN 1968 Vienna Convention on Road Traffic, which means that anyone planning to take a trailer abroad is required to register it with the DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency) before doing so. The Trailer Registration Scheme The scheme is mandatory, so travel (towing a trailer) into any of the other countries that have also ratified the convention is now unlawful... (read more)

33. Learning Programme Promotes Optimal Sleep for Haulage Drivers
April 09, 2019


With the affects of sleep deprivation one of the leading causes of accidents for haulage drivers, the issue is understandably a high profile one. While mandatory rest breaks and highly visible roadside campaigns are going some way to reduce the worrying statistics of recent years, it remains an on-going issue in the industry. High Risk and High Profile Haulage drivers, perhaps more than others in almost any other profession, are constantly at risk from the dangerous effects of tiredness.

April 09, 2019


Merseyside owner drivers need to be aware that a new speed camera is being trialled by police. This camera not only catches speeding vehicles but has been designed to catch red light jumpers too. Known as ‘speed on green’ cameras, they are part of a new innovation that aims to improve safety on the road and deter anyone behind the wheel from speeding up through traffic lights as they are changing.

April 09, 2019


For anyone who makes a living transporting courier loads across the city, nothing is more important than keeping your vehicle (or fleet) maintained and in good working order. Making the ‘daily walk around’ a habit is the best way to ensure you’re staying on top of any potential issues – and one of the most essential things you should be checking is the state of your tyres.

April 09, 2019


Courier drivers face many problems, but the rising cost of fuel is a recurring issue causing knock-on effects year after year. Due to the ever-increasing prices, some delivery companies are forced to make drastic changes, resulting in drivers being out of jobs and slower advancements when it comes to technology and new vehicles.

April 05, 2019


If you have a ute, chances are you have things that you like to store in it. However, it can be very difficult to cram fishing gear, work stuff, camping supplies, and tools all in the back of a ute without something either getting lost, damaged, or stolen.

The drawers typically hold 150 kilograms each and can be fitted to work with the space your ute has easily. There are many 4wd drawer systems that can serve your needs as a working tradie and a camping lover, so let’s see wh... (read more)
