With bookings having already passed the 500 delegate mark, this autumn’s FTA Transport Manager seminar series promises to be as popular as ever. The seminars are sponsored by leading tyre manufacturer Goodyear, who will be giving away a full set of car tyres to one lucky delegate at the end of the series, plus a Goodyear goody bag at each venue. FTA Transport Manager 2012 is also sponsored by Blue Tree Systems and map&guide.
Prominent features of the seminars this year are an address by the local Traffic Commissioner at each venue plus a feedback session with VOSA on compliance, enforcement and annual testing. In addition FTA’s experts will be on hand to provide updates on the latest transport legislation and vehicle engineering developments.
The decision by Goodyear to sponsor the 2012 Transport Manager series is seen as great synergy between the two organisations’ core messages, as the issues affecting Goodyear are very similar to those of FTA members. The leading tyre manufacturer will be educating fleets on the forthcoming EU tyre labelling regulations as well as equipping attendees with the information to make informed decisions based on their fleet’s particular needs, while understanding the tyre label’s limitations.
Key sessions at Transport Manager 2012 include:
Local Traffic Commissioner
Vehicle engineering update
Safety in logistics
Improving fuel efficiency through targeting driver behaviour
VOSA on the compliance, enforcement and annual test experience
Employment legislation developments
Million Pound Drop – an interactive session on compliance issues
