New guide to international road transport now available from FTA
The new 2011 edition includes updated information on public holidays, weekend lorry bans and toll prices and other essential facts for fleet operators in both the own account and hire and reward sectors.
New for this edition are sections on Algeria, updates on safe loading and on the DocStop scheme, which is available for drivers in parts of mainland Europe.
Don Armour, FTA's international manager and editor of the guide, said: 'International road transport operators are often faced with a confusing array of local and national regulations, including weekend bans, local weight restrictions and city centre bans linked to low emissions, along with different processes and penalties for dealing with tachograph and drivers' hours infringements, roadworthiness issues and inappropriate loading of the vehicle.
'This year's guide is even more comprehensive than before, and with no price increase again this year, international road transport operators will find it fantastic value.'
Companies with international membership of FTA receive a free copy of the guide as part of their subscription package and they can buy further copies for £35 (€40) each, no VAT, with price reductions for multiple copies. The cost for non-international FTA members is £55 (€62) a copy and for non-members £75.00 (€85).
