FTA Transport Manager on tour

The Freight Transport Association’s (FTA) Transport Manager series of conferences has become a must attend event for all transport managers across the country, providing the latest information, guidance and best practice advice on forthcoming legislation and enforcement changes.

At the 2014 series of events, sponsored by Goodyear and Volvo, delegates will hear from the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) and the Traffic Commissioner.

The DVSA will be unveiling its systems approach to recognising individual operator culture and its attitude to compliance, outlining enforcement priorities for the coming year, discussing how the Agency is working in partnership with industry and providing an insight into the future enforcement of the seriously non-compliant.

The Highways Agency will be on hand to discuss pressures on the strategic road network and how it deals with challenges such as minimising the impact of road closures.

Other key sessions will include presentations on Trucks of the Future and understanding the new Guide to Maintaining Roadworthiness
