We are now less than 4 weeks away from FM15 this years new conference event dedicated to meeting the needs of fleet professionals working in the Public Sector and within Social Housing. The final plans and modules are in place but it's not too late to still attend. Book you place today by visiting www.fleetmanagerevent.co.uk
Purpose of the Event
The conference will deliver information in a way that ensures attendees can, not only listen to expert advice first hand during the modules, but will also have the opportunity to speak to our panel of experts face-to-face in our Expert Zone in the afternoon session.
The conference is designed to take you through the whole fleet management process, from vehicle choice and procurement through to maintenance and compliance.
It is also an ideal networking opportunity and you will also be issued with valuable CPD training hours.
You will see from the size of the organisations that have committed to visit and exhibit at FM15 that this conference will be a 'must- attend' date in your diary.
With queues of eager visitors reaching beyond the entrance doors and halls full to bursting at times, the 2015 Commercial Vehicle Show is being hailed as a big success, with plans already underway for the Show’s return in 2016, when it will be held at the NEC from 26-28 April.
Official visitor numbers will be confirmed after being independently audited, but initial impressions suggest that 2015 will be recorded as one of the Show’s busiest years since emerging from recession in 2011. On the second day of the event, Wednesday 15 April, the halls were packed, with visitors queuing out of the doors to register themselves on the day.
“The new driver licence checking system to be introduced by the DVLA this summer - will not meet businesses’ needs,” is the warning from the Freight Transport Association (FTA).
As of 8 June this year – the Government is abolishing the paper counterpart that currently accompanies all UK photocard licences.
FTA’s Chief Executive – David Wells has written to the Driver Licencing Agency’s CEO - Oliver Morley telling him that the new online system will make driver licence checking extremely difficult for freight operators, and needs to be reconsidered as a matter of urgency.
The British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association has produced a five-point strategy that would help the next government tackle the problem of road transport-based air pollution.
It has issued the advice in response to the UK’s Supreme Court ruling, which last week ordered the UK government to produce new air quality plans and submit them to the European Commission by 31 December 2015. Failing to do so, the UK runs the risk of fines being issued by Brussels.
