Are you a transport manager committed to running your fleets safely, efficiently and legally? Or operating a handful of vehicles as part of your business, and uncertain of the regulations you need to adhere to?  If so, make sure you attend FTA’s Transport Manager at St Pierre Marriott, Chepstow on 22 October 2020.

 To be held at 11 venues across the UK, the series of one day conferences will highlight key issues for anyone involved in running vehicle fleets, providing professional advice and helping them remain compliant and up to speed on the latest legislative developments.  Topics to be covered include urban restrictions, lessons learned from COVID-19, HGV platooning, drivers’ hours, practical preparations for Brexit, and a round-up of all the relevant transport legislation for the coming year.

 James Firth, FTA’s Head of Road Freight Regulation Policy, comments: “FTA’s 2019 Transport Manager series broke all previous records — more than 1,550 delegates attended  cementing the event’s position as a vital tool for transport managers. Traffic Commissioners still require transport managers to demonstrate how they have kept their professional knowledge up to date at application or renewal; FTA’s Transport Manager is a recognised means of meeting this requirement. I encourage all transport managers in Monmouthshire wanting to stay up-to-date with ever-changing legislation and best practice advice in vehicle operation and maintenance to attend – don’t miss out!

Depending on how government guidance develops in the coming months, the event will take place either physically or virtually, ensuring transport managers can receive the very latest compliance insights they need to run their fleets safely and legally, regardless of restrictions under the COVID-19 outbreak.
