Traffic Commissioners will be updating industry with their latest guidance as industry regulators when they headline Logistics UK’s Transport Manager series for 2021. A Traffic Commissioner will be present at each of the event locations, with the exception of Belfast, where there will be David Mullan, the Head of the Northern Ireland Transport Regulation Unit. The Traffic Commissioners will share invaluable information for transport managers who, despite the disruption and challenges faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, remain legally required to keep their professional knowledge up to date and ensure their operations remain compliant.
Senior Traffic Commissioner, Richard Turfitt, comments: “The logistics industry has been vital to GB during the pandemic and its ability to operate safely and effectively will be just as important to the national recovery. To meet the challenges in a changing industry, it is crucial that transport managers are equipped with the latest information on how to maintain compliance standards and to deliver effective and continuous management of their transport operations. The involvement of the traffic commissioners at Logistics UK’s Transport Manager shows the importance, which the regulators place on professional development and that they value the opportunity to engage with the transport managers, who perform such an important role.”
James Firth, Head of Road Freight Regulation Policy at Logistics UK, said: “We are thrilled to have the involvement of the traffic commissioners at Logistics UK’s Transport Manager series once again. We are grateful to Richard and his team for their continued support for the conference series. Their participation is hugely valuable for our attendees and their involvement in the series will give delegates a great opportunity to ask pressing questions on matters which could affect their fleets’ future compliance and ensure that their operations remain road-ready for the coming year.”
