FTA transport manager conference to address vehicle terrorism threats
The Freight Transport Association’s annual Transport Manager Northern Ireland Conference is to return to Belfast, providing operators with information and advice on latest industry issues.
This includes preventing vehicle use in terrorism activity – highlighted as a key challenge for 2018 by the BVRLA, which recently published a check list of security measures. Latest research by training provider Fleet Source has found three-quarters (74%) of drivers are being offered little to no training to assist them in protecting their vehicle against the risk of being taken for use in a terror attack.
The FTA Transport Manager Conference, which takes place on Thursday 24 May at the Culloden Estate and Spa, will also see John McGrath, deputy secretary – transport and resources at the Department for Infrastructure, provide an insight into some of the key transport issues for the Northern Ireland administration in the upcoming year.
Other subjects to be covered at the event include:
- Enforcement priorities and roadside stops
- Vehicle technology and in-cab cameras
- City centre truck restrictions and the manufacturers’ perspective
- Apprenticeships and skills
