Be prepared with FTA's Transport Manager

Published to the CV Show website on

The theme of this year's renowned Transport Manager series from the Freight Transport Association (FTA) is 'be prepared'. The challenge of high fuel prices, extreme winter weather and some big changes to Operator Licensing and CPC training means it has never been more important for transport managers to take control and be prepared.

FTA's autumn series of Transport Manager seminars takes place across the UK from September to November. Expert speakers from organisations such as VOSA, the Highways Agency and Backhouse Jones Solicitors, as well as the FTA Member Advice Centre and other key FTA staff, will advise delegates on the very latest legislation, and how to keep their operation at the forefront of best practice and compliance procedures.

Key sessions at Transport Manager 2011 include:

-Changes to Operator Licensing, CPC and the role of transport managers in 2012
-Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) test centre closures and Authorised Testing Facilities
-Cutting costs, cutting fuel, cutting carbon
-Who wants to be a transport manager? - interactive learning session
-Extreme weather - are you prepared for winter 2011?
-Agency Worker Directive explained
-Key transport developments expected in 2012
