Free webinar: Check your assets, protect your O-licence
Date: Wednesday 22 July
Time: 2pm

A free webinar to be held on 22 July by Aquarius IT in association with Commercial Motor will explore the benefits of electronic versus paper when it comes to managing and reporting on road worthiness and compliance.

The keynote speaker will be former senior traffic commissioner Beverley Bell CBE, now director of Beverley Bell Consulting, who will be offering her expert insight on governance and the importance of creating a level playing field in the commercial vehicle industry when it comes to driver and vehicle safety and compliance. Using examples from her six years as a TC, she will explain why it’s important for operators to have all the necessary checks and balances in place so as not to give the authorities an ‘excuse’ to investigate further.

Free webinar: Direct Vision Standard explained
Date: Tuesday 19 May
Time: 10am

From February 2021 an estimated 250,000 trucks over 12 tonnes GVW running into Greater London must have a Direct Vision Standard (DVS) permit.

DVS will rate trucks from zero to five on the amount of visibility drivers have from their cab of other road users around their vehicle, such as cyclists, pedestrians and motorcyclists. Once in force, DVS will require all lorries to reach a minimum one star to enter the capital or be fitted with a compliant Safe System relying on cameras and sensors.

Free webinar: My Transport Planner
Time: 2pm
Date: Tuesday 5 May

Motor Transport is excited to be hosting a free webinar on Tuesday 5 May to help operators explore a unique, on-demand transport planning tool. My Transport Planner will enable fleet operators of all sizes to increase vehicle utilisation, cut costs and reduce emissions from road transport.

Using the Software as a Service (SaaS) model, My Transport Planner is a pay-as-you-go solution, and costs less to use than the savings it generates.

It is more efficient than manual planning yet does not require any of the integration or installation of many route optimisation solutions.

Free webinar: Aquarius
Time: 2.02pm
Date: Wednesday 8 April

It is still important that drivers are getting enough rest!

We’ll give some examples of how our customers are planning their day and give some anecdotes about ways in which they are working.
