The Freight Transport Association is the UK’s leading transport association, supporting members in maintaining safe, efficient and sustainable operations. The FTA stand at this year’s Commercial Vehicle Show will feature an interactive zone to demonstrate FTA’s industry-leading tachograph and vehicle management reporting, including a demonstration of VIS Gateway, the Vehicle Inspection Service’s interactive reporting system.
Experts from FTA’s Member Advice Centre will be holding free briefings on fuel efficiency, and information will be available on membership, with a special offer of an £80 saving for anyone signing up as a result of the Show. Discounts will also be available on FTA’s subscription services and various Shopfta products.
With the 10 September deadline fast approaching for completion of Driver CPC training for passenger vehicles, and the deadline for HGV drivers less than 18 months away, drivers must receive the required training as a matter of urgency. Anyone needing help or advice on completing their DCPC training is welcome to visit the FTA stand where experts will be on hand.
The brand new RHA FTA Fuel Card, a joint venture between FTA, the Road Haulage Association and The Fuelcard Company, will be highlighted at the CV Show. Operating on the Keyfuels network which covers one in five of all UK fuel stations, the new fuel card can be used at over 1,600 sites nationwide. Members receive a weekly fixed price based on the bulk fuel market, which could mean huge savings on the national pump price.
Visitors can also find out about vehicle inspections, training, consultancy, the award winning Van Excellence scheme, and how FTA can help on fuel prices and carbon reduction.
