101. On Guard on the Road: Security Extras for your Courier Van
April 05, 2019

While it’s important for all drivers, security is crucial for anyone doing courier work. Your vehicle is your livelihood, so replacing or repairing it can affect your earnings severely. Worse than this, thieves can steal or damage the goods you’re transporting, leaving you to make financial amends with your clients. According to London Car Locksmith, a van is broken into in the UK every 90 seconds, and delivery drivers are among the most targeted groups. Luckily, there are many products on the market to help keep your vehicle secure. Standard tips like locking up, keeping valuables... (read more)

102. Why Now is the Time to Invest in a New Courier Van
April 05, 2019

Every courier driver knows how important it is to make the right choice when buying a new vehicle. It’s usually the biggest expense of your business, and it’s also where you’ll be spending a lot of your time until your next upgrade. On top of this, factors outside your control can make it more urgent to move on from your old van. New regulations stand to increase costs significantly, but switching could help you save - both by avoiding extra charges and by benefiting from better fuel efficiency. Improved Emissions Better fuel efficiency means lower operational costs, while a ... (read more)

103. Wise Buys: 5 of the UK's Top Vans for 2019
April 05, 2019

When you’re making a living doing delivery work, it’s important to have the right equipment – and no piece of equipment is more important than your vehicle. On top of this, for most couriers their van is by far their biggest single expense. It’s crucial that you make an informed decision, then. Luckily, we’re here to help you out with this handy guide to five of the best new offerings for 2019.

104. Customer Survey Reveals Interesting Figures about Technology Solutions
April 05, 2019

There have been two significant findings from Paragon Software Systems’ annual UK customer survey. The first: integrated technology systems are being used ever more frequently in the courier industry to overcome various business pressures. The second: the transport sector is still struggling to recruit new drivers, and the skill shortage is now the biggest challenge that the industry is facing. A Growing Concern Delivery businesses have been struggling to recruit for the last three years. Statistics from the survey show that since 2017, there has been a significant 62% increase in r...

105. Debunking Driving Myths: Laws Every Courier Should Know
April 05, 2019

If you’re someone who works in the courier industry, you’re probably out driving a lot – which means it’s likely you know the lay of the land and the laws of the road like the back of your hand. However, no matter how familiar you are with something, a little revision never hurt anyone. That’s why we’re here to give you a refresher course on what you can and cannot do behind the wheel. There are a lot of driving myths out there, so many so that it can be tough to distinguish road fact from road fiction… what’s a courier to do? We’ll tell you: read on so you can get the lowdown and stay sa... (read more)

106. 2022: The Year Vehicles Become That Much Safer
April 04, 2019

After a provisional agreement reached in March 2019 by the EU Parliament’s ICMO (Internal Market and Consumer Protection), mandatory safety systems will become standard in all new cars rolling off the production lines. While so far the legislation to be enacted in 2022 only applies to cars, it’s likely that before too long we’ll be seeing the same rules applying to the vans we use for courier jobs as well as HGVs. If and when this does happen, there will of course be ramifications for the delivery industry, but first and foremost we should all be celebrating the potential for huge improv... (read more)

107. Transforming London: The Freight and Servicing Action Plan
March 20, 2019

Anyone who’s ever done delivery work knows how high the pressure can be in the transport sector. Alongside concerns at profit, safety and performance, there are ever more urgent environmental issues and political considerations. It can be a delicate balance keeping the economy moving, the haulage industry protected and our environments clean – especially in big cities. Still, UK cities aren’t shrinking from these challenges, and London is leading the way with its ambitious new Freight and Servicing Action Plan. Read on to find out more. Ambitious Aims The new plan seeks nothi... (read more)

108. Smart Parking in the UK: Book and Pay Secure Parking is Here
March 20, 2019

There are few things worse for truck drivers than pulling into a perfectly planned and timed rest stop only to find that there aren’t any spaces to park. Suddenly you go from feeling ready to relax to highly stressed as you try and decide whether to wait or push on to the next stopping point. Even worse, finding an alternative place to refuel and rest can mean taking an unplanned detour, adding time and extra miles to your journey. Luckily, companies are working on ways to avoid this issue. Read on to learn about the arrival of new book and pay technology to UK stores, and what it could ... (read more)

109. Will Speed Limiters Soon be Mandatory in the UK?
March 20, 2019

Those who work in the haulage industry know better than most how much of a problem speeding can be. It’s very rare you can be on the road day-in and day-out and avoid seeing the dangers of going too fast, with life-threatening collisions sadly all too common. Limits help, of course, and they’re high enough on most major roads that few drivers will ever seriously need exceed them. However, these limits only work if they’re enforced, and throwing money and personnel at the problem in the form of speeding cameras and police officers may not be the best way to go. Instead, many in the ... (read more)

110. An Invaluable Resource: The FTA Guide to Road Transport Law
March 20, 2019

It’s incredibly important to keep up with and understand the latest regulations and legislation in the haulage industry. But legal changes can be so frequent and precise that it’s hard to wrap your head around all of them. A lot of legislation is also quite complicated to read, with many obtuse or irrelevant passages. Luckily, the Freight Transport Association (FTA) understands these concerns. The latest edition of its official guide, the Yearbook of Road Transport Law, is now available. Read on to find out why no logistics manager or business owner should be without this valuable and co... (read more)

111. Time to Gear Up: The 2019 Motor Transport Awards
March 20, 2019

After the Oscars, Golden Globes, Grammys, Emmys, Brits, BAFTAs and more, you might be a little bit sick of hearing about awards shows. But there’s at least one more later in the year that haulage drivers should be interested in. Read on to learn more about this year’s biggest event in the hauliers’ calendar: the 33rd annual Motor Transport Awards (MTAs). The Motor Transport Awards Judged by a top team of professionals, the Motor Transport Awards set out ‘to celebrate, recognise and reward excellence in the road freight transport industry’. They’ve been honouring haulage driver... (read more)

112. Looking for Leadership: Is a London Freight Commissioner on the Way?
March 20, 2019

Perhaps even more than other sectors of the economy, the haulage industry is always under pressure to innovate. Intense competition means firms can fall behind quickly, while environmental concerns and frequently updated regulations create new incentives at every level, from managers and manufacturers to drivers. It shouldn’t be surprising, then, that organisations within the sector are keen to take a more active role in helping implement policy – and to make public bodies sit up and take notice. Read on to learn more about calls for a new freight commissioner for London and how it could... (read more)

113. How Soon Can Your Car Window Decals Get Exposed to Water Contact
March 20, 2019

LAST UPDATED ON: July 25, 2019 Without knowing if it is going to rain or what, you just installed your car window decals on. And then suddenly there is a change in weather conditions and it is about to rain. Should you be worried about the newly stuck window decals? Is there a right timing as to when you should get those decals in contact with water or the like? I often get these types of questions and I actually find them fascinating. What the Car Window Decal is made of So, first thing, let us check out the materials that compose this decal item. In most cases, for outdoor ... (read more)

114. Savvy Saving: Know How to Cut Your Fuel Costs
March 19, 2019

It can be tough for haulage companies to find ways to scrimp and save, especially if they are large businesses with several trucks on the go at once. If you’re a fleet manager or an owner driver, you’ll know that there are a number of inevitable costs that come with running a HGV. What you might not know, however, is that fuel accounts for around 25% of these costs. If you’re keen to cut down on spending, some of these helpful tips about how haulage companies like yours can avoid paying more than necessary for fuel may be of interest. Comparing Prices It may seem like an obvious... (read more)

115. Safety First: Loading and Unloading Your Vehicle
March 19, 2019

Safety is paramount for those who make a living in haulage work, and loading and unloading your vehicle can be a riskier procedure than you might think. When workers first start their job in the industry, safety regulations are explained meticulously, but it’s all too common for hauliers to start taking a few shortcuts over time. But, as handy as these time-saving techniques may seem, it’s important to remember that insecure loads can cause damage to both the vehicle and the goods themselves.

116. All About Driver Fatigue and How to Manage It
March 19, 2019

All jobs can become tiring, but haulage work is a real killer when it comes to long hours. Many delivery workers agree that being on the road for long stretches of time can make it difficult for them to ensure they’re having enough rest, even if they allow themselves to stop once in a while. If you’re a fleet manager, the wellbeing of your drivers should be one of your top priorities, and giving them enough time to rest and recharge is a huge part of this. Haulage work is not easy, and some workers may feel pressured into staying behind the wheel for hours at a time, due to job deadlines... (read more)

117. New Recruits: Women and Young People Encouraged to Start Trucking Careers
March 13, 2019

The haulage industry is booming, which is wonderful news! However, although jobs are plentiful, the industry’s reputation as a predominantly male institution continues to make it less attractive to women. Haulage jobs can also often involve long and unsociable hours, requiring time spent away from home, providing another reason young people and women may not be drawn to a career driving trucks. If the younger generation and a more female-focused workforce are to be recruited into the industry, these issues need to be addressed. Barriers and Incentives For the younger generation...

118. Changes to the LGV Driver Apprenticeship Encouraged Due to Haulier Shortages
March 13, 2019

Talented and enthusiastic hauliers are becoming harder to find and it appears that fewer trainees are moving up through the ranks. It’s hoped that changes to the Large Goods Vehicle Driver Apprenticeship could change this by encouraging more youngsters to consider a career in haulage. The Large Goods Vehicle Driver Apprenticeship The apprenticeship is a twelve month scheme that, at present, only includes the Cat C licence; a licence that only permits the driving of rigid vehicles. Haulage companies are being encouraged to support a move to include the Cat C and E licence in the appre... (read more)

119. The Home Straight: Haulage Industry Preparing for Looming Brexit
March 13, 2019

Whatever our view on Brexit, and whatever we originally voted for, we can’t deny that the outcome will affect everyone in the UK - and hauliers are no exception. Once Brexit is initiated, many lorry drivers may be barred from crossing into the EU if they do not have the required permit that will come into play as soon as Brexit occurs. While many have applied for the European Conference of Ministers of Transport (ECMT) permit, fewer than 10% have received one - and this is where the issues become serious. Permit Issues While the Department of Transport is reportedly making more ... (read more)

120. 4WD Drawers for all Types of Tradies
March 06, 2019

It doesn’t matter what type of tradie you are, or the type of things you use your ute for. Everyone needs storage! There is nothing more frustrating than going on a road trip and then fumbling around to make sure everything is safely stored away and checked off the list. To get the best ute storage, you’ll need a 4wd drawer system. There are several types of 4x4 drawers that can be customised to fit your ute, and if you don’t like the ones that are offered, many companies will make custom drawers for you. Most ute drawers weigh around 130kg, but better designed and engineered units can we... (read more)

121. Storage Systems for Utes and Vans
March 04, 2019

No matter which vehicle you drive, you are going to need storage. If you are a tradie with a work ute or a parent with several kids, then you probably recognise this feeling. The constant itching and nagging in the back of your mind as you get in the vehicle and get ready for the day. Do you have everything you need? Did you leave anything in the house? Can you spare the time to run back inside and check? Well, those uncertainties and feelings can vanish with van racking systems or ute storage drawers from Melbourne providers. The storage will banish all of your worries and allow for ever... (read more)

122. New Van Market Growth: A Sign of a Flourishing Courier Industry
February 28, 2019

This January, the market for new light commercial vehicles (LCVs) has increased by 8.6%. Compared to January 2018, this is quite significant, with 22,000 new vans and pick-ups being registered (an uplift of 1,761). Since last year, all sectors have seen growth, besides the medium vans which had a 3.9% decrease in demand. These figures have come from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), and it is interesting to see some significant variations for particular vehicles. Demand Fluctuations Both pickups and light car-derived vans saw large demand increases (13.4% a... (read more)

February 28, 2019

The Freight Transport Association (FTA) Van Excellence Awards have recently taken place, and many owner drivers and operators have been recognised for their significant contributions to the industry. The ceremony was held in Birmingham at the Hyatt Regency Hotel earlier this month, and the prestigious awards were sponsored by various companies including Mercedes-Benz Vans, Brigade Electronics, Lex Autolease, AA, Hertz, Bott and Quartix. Those in the transport sector who went above and beyond for the sake of the industry have been commended for their great efforts. High Standards Al... (read more)

124. Using Tired Tyres: DVSA's New Safety Guide
February 21, 2019

Doing haulage jobs can be tough on your tyres. Long hours, often at high speeds on the motorway, and carrying heavy loads all put a lot of pressure on your vehicle. Of course, although it would be great to use brand-new tyres for every journey, this just isn’t practical. It’d be too expensive, for one thing, and the constant changes would make operations extremely inefficient. All this means driving on ‘well used’ rubber is pretty much unavoidable for anyone in the transport industry and the DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency) recognises this. There’s no ban on any material, regar... (read more)

125. Biogas Benefits: A Green Future for the Transport Sector
February 21, 2019

All businesses face pressures to innovate and none more than haulage companies. For decades now, issues around climate change have pushed the development of new and alternative fuels, and these debates are only intensifying as evidence piles up. This can be stressful, especially as transport firms find themselves caught between regulatory limits and commercial pressures to innovate. But it can also open new opportunities. Biogas might just lead to major benefits for the transport sector, so read on to find out more about this exciting alternative fuel. What is Biogas? There’s... (read more)
