Free webinar on relaxing driver hours during the Coronavirus outbreak - register now
Have you heard about the temporary relaxation of drivers hours and want to know more?
Commercial Motor is hosting an exclusive webinar in association with Aquarius about this dramatic change in tachograph legislation.
The additional measures being put in place by the Government and the relaxation of the working day allowances will have a dramatic affect on the haulage industry, but what exactly does it mean. This hour-long discussion will look at how it will affect your business, how to manage driver and possible future changes. Experts from Aquarius will give examples on how their customers are planning their days and provide you with some interesting anecdotes on managing the situation. The webinar will explain how the Flexible Working – Contingency & Emergency Planning document released by the Senior Traffic commissioner will translate into everyday activity for the majority of businesses.
As well as this important topic, the webinar will also look at the IR35 employment law, and while it has been delayed it will only mean you have more time to plan for the future. The webinar will help you prepare.
Finally, they’ll be an update on the common mistakes regarding duty time and an update on the issue with Gen2 tachographs and company cards.
Register your interest in this free webinar session and put a date in your diary for 2pm on the 8 April 2020.
From the Frontline: Bulk tippers busy but nervous
AE Gough & Sons, the bulk tipper specialist from Llandrindod Wells, which specialises in delivering animal feed and quarried products throughout England and Wales, reports that business is still thriving. However, partner Simon Gough points out that the whole sector is in a state of nervousness about the future uncertainty.
With bulk hauliers so dependent on a few large customers, it would only take one phone call for things to change dramatically. The cost of parking up large parts of the fleet would be significant, particularly continuing to pay drivers.
At the time of writing, Gough was still waiting to hear how the government’s promises for wage support would translate into meaningful help.
