The Freight Transport Association has published the 18th edition of its annual European Road Transport Guide, which contains essential information for UK-based road transport operators visiting countries in the EU and beyond.
This year’s guide includes updated country sections with amended information on public holidays, weekend lorry bans, toll prices and other useful facts for fleet operators in both the own account and hire and reward sectors. There has also been an overhaul of the various Customs sections by HM Revenue and Customs, and Freightlink Solutions Ltd has supplied additional information relating to roll-on, roll-off ferry services in Europe.
Don Armour, FTA’s International Manager and editor of the guide said:
"Since the publication of last year’s edition we have received many useful suggestions from members for items to include in the guide, helping other members and their drivers avoid problems and keep to their delivery and collection schedules when they are out on the road. As with any reference work, the details within the guide need constant updating and real ‘hands-on’ information is always appreciated."
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, no VAT. The cost for non-international FTA members is £55 a copy and for non-members £75.00, with price reductions for multiple copies.
