A fully updated edition of the Freight Transport Association’s specialist guide for companies involved in international freight movements by road, the FTA European Road Freight Guide, is now available.
The 23nd 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.
New for this edition of the guide is a chapter on animal transport in Europe, as well as additional sections within the reference pages at the end of the book, and further destinations have been added to a table of ‘journey times from the UK’. Individual country chapters have been revised to include amended information on public holidays and the associated HGV driving restrictions, toll prices and other essential facts for fleet operators.
Don Armour, Editor of the European Road Freight Guide, said: “The European Road Freight Guide has been completely updated with all the information international operators need to successfully negotiate the confusing array of local and national regulations they face when operating in Europe and beyond. The information is as up-to-date and relevant as possible to enable companies and their drivers to avoid problems and keep to their schedules when they are on international journeys.”
There is no price increase for the Guide again this year. Companies in European Road Freight Service membership of FTA receive a free copy of the Guide as part of their subscription package, with further copies available at a discount from the FTA Shop. For non-European Road Freight Service FTA members the price is £59 per copy and for non-FTA members £79, with reductions for multiple orders. Orders can be placed with the FTA Shop online at or by telephone on 03717 11 11 11, quoting produce code 4055.

Efficient logistics is vital to keep Britain trading, directly having an impact on more than seven million people employed in the making, selling and moving of goods. With Brexit, new technology and other disruptive forces driving change in the way goods move across borders and through the supply chain, logistics has never been more important to UK plc. A champion and challenger, FTA speaks to Government with one voice on behalf of the whole sector, with members from the road, rail, sea and air industries, as well as the buyers of freight services such as retailers and manufacturers.
