Updated FTA guide to managing drivers

Freight Transport Association publishes fully revised and updated guidance and advice
THE Freight Transport Association has published a completely updated version of its Guide to Managing Drivers, which provides advice and guidance to help operators manage drivers in a professional way.

Companies rely on their drivers to ensure a cost-effective road freight operation, keeping fuel use down, minimizing vehicle wear and tear, and keeping maintenance, insurance and accident costs down.

However, driver actions are also the way in which poor management practices can come to the surface, so getting the best out of them is crucial in order to operate vehicles in a cost-effective and customer-focused way.

The FTA Guide to Managing Drivers covers recruitment, checking driving entitlement and carrying out inductions through to managing drivers’ hours, ensuring daily walk-around checks are carried out properly and managing driver infringements.

It also looks at good practice when using agency drivers and provides sample forms and checklists that will help managers in their day-to-day tasks.

The FTA Guide to Managing Drivers is available from Shopfta, priced at £15.00 for FTA members and £25.00 for non-members, with discounts for multiple copies.

Copies can be ordered online at Alternatively, tel: 08717 111111, quoting code 4375.
