FTA keeps you moving as winter bites

Jan 07, 2016

With winter weather already affecting parts of the UK, the Freight Transport Association (FTA) is advising anybody involved in the management and movement of vehicles to take precautions to protect themselves from the possible problems generated by severe winter weather. 
FTA has a suite of products and services designed to support and advise operators and drivers over the winter months to help them keep on delivering the goods that everyone needs. The Association works closely with the national highway authorities and the Met Office to communicate vital weather information and provides a traffic information service which operates 24-hours a day, seven days a week, to ensure that vital amber and red winter weather alerts are passed on to members as they are issued. 
Malcolm Bingham, FTA’s Head of Road Network Management Policy said, “Over recent years the Met Office has become more focussed on the effects of severe weather and all road users need to take note of the warnings that are issued. The freight and logistics industry is reliable and makes arrangements to cope when hit with severe weather conditions, but FTA can provide additional information, support and equipment to help them keep moving throughout the winter months.”
