During this unprecedented coronavirus crisis Motor Transport and motortransport.co.uk have been working flat out to keep the road transport industry informed and updated with the very latest news and views.

Our highly experienced team of journalists has been right on top of developments as they have happened, with exclusive reports and interviews to make sure our essential logistics industry has all the information it needs to survive.

As well as increasing the volume of daily news carried on motortransport.co.uk we are still printing and distributing the fortnightly magazine that provides readers with a round up of the most important news plus all the in-depth features operators need to keep their businesses on the road.

While there has been no reported disruption to our usual distribution channels, if any reader is having difficulty obtaining their copy of MT just email us on subscriberemails@dvvmediainternational.com to request a full digital version of the magazine.

Since the coronavirus crisis started, we have seen record traffic on motortransport.co.uk, with no sign of this trend coming to an end. We are also reaching a wider audience than before, with the website setting new records for unique users.

While some of our popular clean air events have been postponed and are awaiting new dates, the 2020 Motor Transport Awards have been moved from their usual July slot to 17 November at the usual prestigious venue, the Grosvenor House Hotel. The Freight in the City Expo is also going ahead at Alexandra Palace on 3 November.

As some of our face to face events have had to be postponed we have expanded our portfolio of free webinars, with online updates on the relaxation of drivers’ hours rules and the impending Direct Vision Standard among the hot topics to be covered in forthcoming sessions.

Motor Transport thanks and pays tribute to everyone working in the road transport industry for going the extra mile in this extremely difficult period. Without you the country would not be getting all the food, medical supplies and other essentials on which we depend.
