New edition of handbook for transport managers and operators

With the UK’s forthcoming exit from the EU, transport managers and operators must be up to date on the latest changes to rules and regulations governing the UK's Road Transport Operators.

The new edition of Lowe's Transport Manager's & Operator's Handbook 2017 is out on 3rd February 2017. Now in its 47th edition, it is the most comprehensive guide available to the operational rules and guidelines governing the UK's road transport operators. This book provides essential information on transport legislation, technical standards, and goods vehicle operations.

This new edition covers procedures, rights and responsibilities that all transport managers and operators must know to protect their business. Updated with the latest consultation papers from the Health and Safety Executive, Lowe’s Transport Manager’s & Operator’s Handbook 2017 provides details on professional competence, working times and driving hours rules, speed cameras and penalties, the international road haulage market, and drugs testing for drivers.

Director of Professional Development at the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, Dorothea Carvalho, has provided praise for other editions, saying ‘If transport managers and operators purchase only one book this year, then it will probably be Lowe's Transport Manager's & Operator's Handbook.’
