Beleaguered road transport operators have enough to worry about. So hot on the heels of the Agency Workers Directive, the European Commission (EC) is striking at the heart of every road transport operator. New rules and regulations for the role of the transport manager.
Sexily titled (EC) No 1071/2009 it will come into force on 4 December 2011. Apparently we have had two years to get used to the idea. But most operators I have spoken to recently are not aware of it. More importantly the implications on their operation are little understood.
So listen up!
