126. 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)

127. 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)

128. 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)

129. 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)

130. 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)

132. 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)

133. 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)

February 21, 2019


Dealing with insurance claims is every logistics manager’s nightmare. The process is especially painful if you’re making do with incomplete or bad information. What should be an open and shut case can drag out, turning into months of tit-for-tat and he-said-she-said testimony. Many haulage companies lose a lot of money and time to this process, and those who have to deal with it become stressed and frustrated. Data Gathering Technology All this helps explain why new data gathering technologies are so popular in the transport industry. If you have accurate, objective information in t... (read more)

Over 5,400 member companies are networked together through the Exchange to fill empty capacity, get new clients and form long-lasting business relationships.">One of the biggest perks of a job in the haulage industry is the chance to get out on the open road with the wind in your hair - even if it is only the gust of your heater warming up the cab. Most drivers have their own personal favourite route or feature that they continue to admire, no matter how many times they traverse the region delivering goods and picking up return loads.

136. New Refuelling Bunker Opens at Holyhead Port
February 21, 2019


As anyone who does haulage work knows, there are few things more annoying than having to go out of your way to refuel. It’s always annoying having to spend longer at the wheel and take longer to complete the job. But it feels especially bad when you have to detour to fill up, as you know that some of the money you’re paying at the pump is just to cover getting there and back. On top of that, drivers have to schedule journeys around these extended detours, cutting down on rest time and contributing to stress. Given all this, you’d expect most major routes to have refuelling stations... (read more)

137. Using Virtual Reality to Improve Health and Safety in the Haulage Industry
February 21, 2019


For any logistics manager, health and safety training for your drivers and depot staff is always one of the highest priorities. While haulage work is very tightly regulated, there are many aspects of the industry that can be dangerous, and it’s absolutely essential to provide the correct education to employees at every level. Your job is set to get a whole lot easier, however, with the advent of programmes that can be delivered in a virtual reality environment.

February 21, 2019


When is a petrol station not a petrol station? When it’s the Red Hill filling station in Leicestershire! If you travel via the A6 at Loughborough Road to drop off goods or pick up return loads you may be familiar with this space age looking road stop, but what you might not know is that it holds a pretty special honour. And it’s not the only one… English Heritage on Display In 2012, two filling stations in the UK – the one Red Hill and one at Markham Moor in Nottinghamshire – were listed as significant buildings and put under the protection of English Heritage.

139. Could Potholes Become a Thing of the Past?
February 20, 2019


One of the biggest problems drivers face when completing courier jobs is potholes. At their worst, these serious defects on the road surface can be impossible to predict and very difficult to avoid. But all that could be about to change. Under pressure from both the transport industry and ordinary drivers, the government is trialling new techniques to make potholes a thing of the past.

February 20, 2019


As anyone in the transport industry knows, driving in poor weather can be anything from annoying to downright dangerous. The standard advice to stay off the roads unless your journey is absolutely necessary just doesn’t work for those doing courier work. Staying at home means not getting paid so it’s simply not an option. Driving on icy roads is a necessary evil, then. But that doesn’t mean it has to be dangerous.

141. Carrying a Bigger Payload? Give Yourself a Bigger Braking Distance
February 20, 2019


Over time, anyone working as an owner driver in the delivery industry becomes intimately acquainted with their van. You know how it handles, you learn its capabilities and you get an understanding of how it brakes, corners and accelerates. But, here’s a million-pound question for you: did you know that having a heavier load in the back affects braking distances? In theory, for the 50% of you who scoffed and said ‘well of course I knew that’, the other 50% did a bit of a double take and said ‘whaaat?’. That’s what the results of a survey carried out by Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles found... (read more)

142. The Proof is in the Pudding: Fleet Managers Are Buying EVs
February 20, 2019


Over the past few years, there’s been so much hype and genuine innovation surrounding the advent of electric vehicles (EVs), and it’s left more than a few heads (and tyres) spinning in the delivery industry. In fact, recent figures from manufacturer Kia Motors UK show that the tide has definitely turned, and switching to electric is now, if not quite the norm, certainly well on its way to being so. Electric Statistics According to Kia’s 2019 Fleet Green Perspectives Report, there’s been an increase of 27% in the uptake of EV vehicles in UK fleets in the past year. Of the 150 fleet ma...

143. Keeping Your Drivers Fit for the Job
February 20, 2019


If you’re a fleet manager, part of your role is ensuring the company’s biggest assets (the vehicles) are in perfect working order. That means regular maintenance checks, daily walk-arounds and investment in upgrades. But reverse back one step, because actually, a transport company has a whole lot of other assets equally important to the company: their people. And as a boss, you’re ultimately responsible for them. For a courier driver, staying safe and productive on the job depends not only on their van, but also on their mental and physical health. Fatigue is the biggest cause of road-r... (read more)

144. Smaller Fleet Operators' Growing Interest in Gas
February 18, 2019


If you’re the manager of a smaller haulage company, I’ve got one question for you: how do you fuel your fleet? In the past, the answer was obvious – diesel was the only way to go. Today, however, that’s not necessarily the case. Biomethane has become increasingly popular over time for a variety of reasons. Read on for more information as to why those in the logistics industry are gassing up the idea of running solely on gas.

February 15, 2019


Nothing works up an appetite like delivery work – after all, being a haulier is a hard (and hungry!) job. However, when you’re on the road for hours, and sometimes even days at a time, it can be hard to find the time and opportunity to eat healthily, especially when the only chance you have to fill up your stomach is when you’re filling up your tank at a petrol station… and the snacks they sell there are not known for being the best for you. Luckily, Chippenham Pit Stop has chipped in to save the day with their new meal deals and extended menu. Read on to see how their full English will k... (read more)

February 14, 2019


If you work in the haulage industry, you’d have to have been living with your head under a rock not to notice the push to go green. The environment is at the forefront of many people’s minds (and rightly so) and more and more individuals and businesses are becoming conscious of their carbon footprints. However, despite the fact that this is a positive mind set, and that cleaning up Mother Earth is an admirable feat we are undertaking, oftentimes it seems as though the brunt of this burden tends to fall on the shoulders of those whose careers are in haulage. Although it’s understandable th... (read more)

149. Knowing These Warning Signs Will Tell You When You Need to Visit a Mechanic
February 14, 2019


A serious mechanical fault can be one of the biggest problems transport industry workers have to deal with. Often, when your van is in for unexpected repairs, you simply can’t work and those lucrative courier loads will just go to other drivers. And, if the problem persists, clients may look for another company for their jobs. For these reasons, it’s crucial that you know the warning signs to look out for in order to catch any issues before they become debilitating. Of course, modern vehicles give a lot of information on their performance, and key indicators like oil levels, fuel consump... (read more)

150. The Benefits of Ute Storage Drawers
February 07, 2019


Believe it or not, some Tradies are not yet aware of the benefits that a good set of ute storage drawers provide.
