The series of 11 conferences, run by the Freight Transport Association (FTA), provides an essential legislation round-up and technical update on the main topics that vehicle operators need to be aware of to ensure the safety, compliance and efficiency of their organisation.

There’s an address by the local Traffic Commissioner at each venue on their priorities for the year ahead, as well as sessions covering tyres, technology and how to significantly reduce your fuel budget; brake testing, trailer developments, The Mobility Package, Brexit, drivers’ employment status, urban restrictions; drivers’ employment status; and vehicle terrorism threat and safety advice from the National Counter Terrorism Police.

The long-running conference series has already broken all previous attendance records, with more than 1,500 bookings have been taken so far this year.

Carlie Nowell, FTA’s head of events, said: “These conferences provide the ideal opportunity for transport managers to keep their professional knowledge up to date and hear direct from the Traffic Commissioners and leading industry experts on the latest issues affecting their operation.  Over 1,500 people have already realised the benefit of attending this year’s conferences, but there are still a few places left at the remaining two events for anyone wishing to come along.”

To sign up for the final two conferences, which take place next week in Coventry on 26 November and in Chepstow on 28 November, please visit or call FTA Customer Services on 03717 11 22 22.
