Commercial Motor 26 September issue - on sale now!
This week’s Commercial Motor is guest-edited by Richard Fry – the deputy MD of Frampton’s Transport Services and former chairman of the Road Haulage Association – and he brings years of experience in the business to another bumper issue!
We take a look at issues close to Fry’s heart – including:
• Are maximum pallet weights to much? And does this put delivery drivers’ health at risk? We investigate this rising phenomenon.
• Is the 14.6m dead as a dodo? If longer semi-trailers are for those who cube out before they weigh out, then when go shorter? We explore the pro’s and con’s.
• Can you claim for compensation if a road is closed? Re-routing is expensive – it costs time and money and fuel. If there is blame, can you make a claim?
• Be proud to buy British! Fry has always been a advocate for buying close to home, but in today’s global economy, can your average haulier really run on all-British products, goods and services?
• What has FairFuelUK ever done for you? Working for the RHA fry has been at the forefront of the campaign to lower fuel duty. But what does the industry think about what happens in the corridors of power?
Finally, our cover stars are McCulla. They are more than just Merc’s and we discover what it takes to keep cool on the cutting edge of temperature controlled transport.
