FTA launches events to assist operators
The FTA has launched a series of events to help operators understand and adapt to the changing international regulatory landscape.
International Road Transport Operator Conferences 2018 will take place on 1 October at Milton Keynes Dons FC; 9 October at Aintree Racecourse, Liverpool; and on 24 October at Mercure, Brands Hatch. They will provide attendees with information on the latest regulatory changes and obligations affecting international haulage, including the ban on drivers taking weekly rests within their vehicles and recent updates to minimum wage requirements.
The conferences will debate the potential effect of Brexit on international haulage and share advice on how operators can best futureproof their businesses. FTA head of European policy Pauline Bastidon said: “International operators are facing new challenges, with the Brexit negotiations causing major uncertainty for planning processes.
“As the only logistics membership association with representation on both sides of the Channel, FTA is ideally placed to share its expert knowledge and offer practical advice to international hauliers and shippers. The FTA is confident that these new events will help operators find the answers they need, so that they can keep Britain trading with customers in the EU and beyond.”
