Volvo's Heads Up for Liquefied Gas for the Long Haul

Volvo has put itself on the record, stating that Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), otherwise known as biogas, is the best alternative to diesel for the transport industry if it is to improve its CO2 emissions.

Turning Lorry Drivers Green

In any industry, everyone from top management down should endeavour to engage in a regular programme of self-improvement or training in order to be at the top of their game. In the transport industry, particularly for a lorry driver, there are actually certain legislative requirements that need to be undertaken to remain compliant. However, there are other initiatives that, while voluntary, are highly desirable for a lorry driver to take part in. One new government training programme is set on teaching UK hauliers to drive in a more eco-friendly manner by being less aggressive on the roads. He ...

Biggest Bugbears The average lorry driver will spend more time behind the wheel than almost any other ro ...

Post-Brexit Britain: Delivery Work in Northern Ireland

With Brexit making daily headlines, the Irish border problem is recognised as one of particular importance and complexity.
