Van safety, security and electric vehicles under spotlight in free webinars

A series of free van-related webinars is to start from next month, highlighting topical fleet issues including driver safety, van security and the switch to electric vehicles.

Each Logistics UK webinar will focus on a different topic, such as driver behaviour, van security and introducing an electric vehicle fleet

The webinars are being hosted by Logistics UK and sponsored by its gold partners, covering the AA, Bott, Brigade Electronics, Hertz, Lex Autolease, Quartix and TVL.

They will take place on alternate weeks starting from 15 February 2021 and each one will be around one hour long.

Taking place between 10-11am on 15 February 2021, the first webinar will introduce the recent changes to the Logistics UK Van Excellence Standards, which have been updated to include safety technology.

Sharon Mitchell, Logistics UK’s joint head of consulting & standards, said: “Technologies are becoming increasingly developed and now play a vital role in ensuring the safety of all road users. We have updated our Van Excellence standards to require operators to enhance safety through the fitment of safety features to their vehicles to help prevent or mitigate road collisions. We recognise that each operator, and operation, is different and we have therefore not specified what technology must be fitted; it is up to the operator to demonstrate their method of safety technology.”
