The changing face of road transport
Nearly everything we eat, consume or use in our homes and offices is at some stage moved by the road transport industry. Not many people know, bu the road transport is in fact the 5th largest industry in the UK produces more than £60m worth of revenue to the British economy.
Still perceived as a slightly old-fashioned, environmentally unfriendly industry, the reality is that many of the class 1 vehicles registered in the UK today are far more efficient and versatile than they were some years ago.
Increased load capacity, combined with far greater fuel efficiency and back office IT infrastructures means that vehicles now need far less downtime and are increasingly being used for double-shifting. The IT-led nature of the industry now means that vehicle usage is far more flexible than in the past and means that more drivers can use one vehicle over a shorter period of time.
In-cab monitoring and efficient driving technology also mean that drivers themselves are becoming increasingly aware of their responsibilities while on the road. Gradually, the industry as a whole is changing the public perception of the haulage sector and we at WCF have introduced our own driver code of conduct which is an important link between our drivers, our customers and fellow road users. We invest heavily not only in efficient vehicles but also in the training and development of our drivers and this ongoing commitment to quality is what will define the future of our industry as a whole
