Our first broadcast, Driving innovation in urban freight, supported by Renault Trucks took place on Thursday 11 February and is now available to watch on demand.
You’ll hear from Transport for London’s innovation team about the exciting freight trials underway in the capital, as well as learn about the latest developments in electric delivery vehicles from vehicle manufacturer Renault Trucks. Leading brewer Carlsberg also highlighted some of the steps they are taking to reduce the environmental impact of its fleet movements in and around urban areas.
Throughout 2020, Transport Managers and Operators have had to explore 'smarter' and socially distanced ways to undertake their day to day compliance requirements, with electronic solutions increasing in prevalence for processes such as debriefing of drivers, defect checking and vehicle maintenance scheduling, to name a few.
This webinar aims to demonstrate the benefits of integrating electronic processes throughout a transport office in order to make 'joined-up thinking' the way forward!
We will also discuss the ways in which the pandemic has changed approaches to enforcement. Data requests following socially-distanced roadside enforcement checks have become the norm, so being able to access raw data via a user-friendly tachograph analysis solution is crucial.
We will see how much easier it is to follow government guidelines on social distancing via electronic approaches to driver debriefing and document transmission.
We will consider how the integration of data between defect reporting and vehicle maintenance scheduling systems enables a more efficient notification and turn around process for fleet defect rectification and scheduling of recurring events.

Commercial Motor and digital tachograph analysis specialists Aquarius discuss electronic vs paper when it comes to managing and reporting on all aspects of road worthiness and compliance.
The keynote speaker is former senior traffic commissioner Beverley Bell CBE, now director of Beverley Bell Consulting, who offers 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 17 years as a TC, Beverley explains 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. Register to watch the recording here.

From February 2021 it is expected an estimated 250,000 trucks over 12 tonnes GVW running into Greater London must have a Direct Vision Standard (DVS) permit.
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. Failure to comply could result in fines of £550 per day per vehicle.
Motor Transport’s webinar, in partnership with Brigade Electronics, explores your key questions and gives you the opportunity to hear from our panel of experts on the topic. Register to watch the recording here.

Other pitfalls also covered include record-keeping requirements in emergency situations and monitoring, identifying and accounting for missing kilometres when comparing driver cards and vehicle data. Register to watch the recording here.
