Logistics UK has announced it will be hosting a series of seven Van Gold Partner Webinars to take place on alternate weeks starting from 15 February 2021.
The webinars – sponsored by the AA, Bott Ltd, Brigade Electronics, Hertz, Lex Autolease, Quartix and TVL – will each be around one hour long and are free to attend.
Taking place between 10am – 11am on 15 February 2021, the first webinar will introduce the recent changes to the Logistics UK van excellence standards, which have been updated to include Safety Technology.
Emily Hardy, UK marketing manager at brigade electronics said: “We are delighted the van excellence standards are to include safety technology for new vans entering fleets.
“This brings vans in line with larger commercial vehicles, particularly in the freight, haulage and construction industries that have been adhering to voluntary schemes including Truck Excellence, FORS and CLOCS for the last decade. “
Sharon Mitchell, joint head of consulting and standards, Logistics UK added: “With more than four million of them on Britain’s roads, vans have played a key role in servicing the nation throughout the pandemic, reinforcing just how vital they are to the logistics industry.
“We are thrilled to be offering these webinars, each focusing on different topics such as driver behaviour, van security and introducing an electric vehicle (EV) fleet.”
