freight people launch #talkingtransport

January 21 saw the launch of freight people.  Over 50 people attended and so a massive THANK YOU to everyone who supported us and for the kind feedback received – we were overwhelmed.

THANKS too to our fabulous sponsors, Novis Chartered Accountants, Wilby Solicitors, Driven Assett Finance, Motus Commercials and Backhouse Jones Solicitors

Our hot topic for the first event was bridge strikes. Transport lawyer Laura Hadzik from Backhouses gave an engaging presentation. This is a forum for fleet operators, which promotes open conversation and learning, but which can only occur if we are open, honest and allow ourselves to be vulnerable and talk of our experiences. Thanks also therefore to one of my valued clients who spoke of her Company’s experience of a driver hitting a bridge and the emotional, commercial and financial consequences.

These two presentation generated much animated debate. Everyone went away with lots of food for thought and ideas on how to protect their Companies by incorporating best practice procedures.

The next event on 18th February will cover the hot topic of vehicle crime.  Details can be found by searching for freight people on
