101. Different Types of Ute Storage
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. A ute storage system can help with that, with many companies able to fit your ute with 4wd storage drawers. 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)

April 05, 2019

If you are a man (or woman) with a courier van, you want to be a man (or woman) with a plan – a security plan, that is.

With the world’s obsession for letting our fingers do the walking – aka online shopping – those of us who do courier jobs for a living are reaping the benefits.

106. How London's Ultra Low Emission Zone Could Affect Your Business
April 05, 2019

There couldn’t (or shouldn’t) be a delivery business in the UK that doesn’t know about the impending implications of London’s Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ). How it affects operators will depend on a range of factors, including the size of their fleet and, of course, how often they travel in and out of London. But the fact remains that it will affect anyone working within the wider UK courier network, directly or indirectly, and the FTA (Freight Transport Association) has voiced concerns that some operators may be hit hard. What Does it Mean for Businesses? To distil it down to a se... (read more)

107. You Can Now Find Electric Vehicle Charging Points on Google Maps
April 05, 2019

While it is quite environmentally friendly to use an electric vehicle (EV) for courier work, there are some practical challenges. One of them is trying not to run out of power during the day, which could become a hassle and leave the consignment stranded somewhere. However, in good news for those who make a living from courier work, recharging the vehicle will not be so much of a problem anymore. Google Maps now also features Electric Vehicle Charging points, so a driver will not have to rely on memory to plan feasible driving routes. Andrew Foster, group product manager for Google Maps, ...

108. The Possible Reality of Self-Parking Vehicles in 2021
April 05, 2019

If you work in the delivery industry you no doubt spend a lot of your day getting in and out of your vehicle. Imagine a world, though, in which you don’t have to panic about parallel parking in a really tight spot because your vehicle smoothly parks itself in a bay. Imagine how much faster and less stressful it would be to get all your courier loads delivered! You wouldn’t have to waste any time trying to manoeuvre your van, which means you’d always make it on time to get the packages where they have to go. Sound too good to be true?

109. 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)

110. 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)

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...

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.

114. 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)

115. 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.

116. 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)

117. 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)

118. 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 learn more about this year’s biggest event in the hauliers’ calendar: the 33rd annual Motor Transport Awards (MTAs).

120. 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.

122. 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.

123. 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.

124. 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)

125. 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...
