Shipping News Feature
UK – The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) is preparing to host its first ever Road Transport Training Event on 16th August 2017. The event, held at the Institute's Head Office in Corby, will provide transport professionals and fleet operators with invaluable industry advice. CILT's leading, expert trainers will be on hand to discuss the importance of operating a compliant fleet, and the legal, moral and economic responsibilities that compliance with road haulage regulations entails. In a statement concerning the training CILT said:

“Your fleets are the backbone of Britain’s economy, the steady flow of vans and trucks keeps our country moving and our supply chain stable. We are, however, living in turbulent times so must persevere and stand together against an ever changing and uncertain future. Compliance is not just a legal obligation, but is essential for successful tendering, business insurance, maintaining your existing customers, and of course the health and safety of your staff and the general public.”

The free event will teach participants what their current legal obligations are, what happens if these legal obligations are not met and how to ensure that company departments fulfil those obligations correctly. Delegates will have the opportunity to request topics for discussion before the event and will have the chance to ask questions on the day as well as enjoy a light lunch after the free training session.
