Freight is a vital part of London’s economy and its success relies on safe, reliable and efficient deliveries. However, for operators this is a day to day challenge of complying with regulations, enforcement and voluntary schemes across the capital, with the continuous need to improve road safety, cope with road infrastructure changes, increased congestion and to minimise emissions.
To help address these issues, FTA will hold a dedicated Managing Freight in London Conference. It will explore the latest key changes and challenges that operators will face over the coming months and years, including the introduction of the London Safer Lorry Scheme, Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs), the use of the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS), Construction Logistics Cycle Safety (CLOCS), Transport for London’s (TfL) work related road risk schemes and targeted enforcement against non-compliant HGVs by the police and DVSA, and the Ultra Low Emission Zone. The conference will ensure compliance and cost minimisation through improved business awareness of issues and solutions.
Chaired by FTA’s Chief Executive, David Wells, delegates will hear a key address from Sir Peter Hendy CBE, Commissioner of Transport for London; the Metropolitan Police’s Commercial Vehicle Unit; Westminster City Council; Bikeability; major logistics companies and customers and industry and FTA policy experts.
