The fully updated 2017 edition of the Freight Transport Association’s European Road Transport Guide sponsored by Eurotunnel is now available.
The 22nd edition of the guide provides information and advice for road transport operators moving goods to Europe and beyond, whether they are working as professional international hauliers or in the own account sector. The guide includes essential facts for fleet operators, including details of public holidays, weekend lorry bans and toll prices.
New content includes brief, early comments on how Brexit might affect international operations; top tips for safe summer and winter driving; precautions to consider when travelling to risky destinations; drivers’ hours and new restrictions on weekly rest in the cab; and minimum wages and requirements around the posting of workers in some member states.
