FTA publishes new edition of its guide to road transport law

The 2019 edition of the Freight Transport Association’s much respected Yearbook of Road Transport Law, an essential reference guide containing in-depth information on road transport legislation, has now been published. 

Compiled by FTA’s team of transport legislation experts and fully updated for 2019, the Yearbook is easy to use and designed to keep transport operators fully compliant and up to date with legal changes.

The 2019 edition contains comprehensive sections on general operations, specialised operations, special vehicles, overseas operations, employment law, health and safety legislation and key addresses and contacts, as well as a section on insurance, risk management and loss control.

Ian Gallagher, FTA’s Head of Compliance Information, said: “It’s essential that operators of all commercial vehicle fleets, both large and small, are kept fully aware of all aspects of road transport and other related legislation, such as health and safety. In a fast-moving regulatory environment, it is imperative that businesses stay abreast of legislative changes and ensure that their transport operation is as compliant as it can possibly be.”

Efficient logistics is vital to keep Britain trading, directly having an impact on more than seven million people employed in the making, selling and moving of goods. With Brexit, new technology and other disruptive forces driving change in the way goods move across borders and through the supply chain, logistics has never been more important to UK plc.  A champion and challenger, FTA speaks to Government with one voice on behalf of the whole sector, with members from the road, rail, sea and air industries, as well as the buyers of freight services such as retailers and manufacturers.
