Nineteenth Edition of FTA Publication Now Available
Shipping News Feature

UK – EUROPE – For the 19th year the Freight Transport Association (FTA) has published its annual edition of its always useful and ever popular European Road Transport Guide. The 444-page publication contains essential information for UK-based road haulage transport operators visiting 58 countries in the EU and beyond, including updated driving restrictions and public holidays, country details, customs and ferries information, and much more.

The FTA represents freight and logistics stakeholders operating all modes of transport but its membership includes companies running fleets totalling over 220,000 commercial vehicles, which is around half of the country’s entire fleet. Don Armour, FTA’s International Manager and editor of the guide commented:

“This revised edition of the guide offers vital information for anyone involved in international road freight operations. The details within the guide are constantly updated, with contributions often being made by FTA members from their own experience. This way we can keep the information up-to-date and relevant and enable other companies and their drivers to avoid problems and keep to their schedules when they are on international journeys.”

It is essential for anyone travelling in a commercial vehicle to remain abreast of current rules and regulations and, once again, there has been no price increase for the guide this year. Companies in international membership of FTA receive a free copy of the guide as part of their subscription package and they can buy further copies for £35 each with no VAT. The cost for non-international FTA members is £55 a copy and for non-members £75, with price reductions for multiple copies. Order online from Shopfta or call 08717 11 11 11, quoting code 4055.
