Virtual Fleet Manager

Virtual Fleet Manager

Imagine if you were able to have access to a qualified transportation fleet manager without the cost?

Imagine if they were able to ensure you complied with all the legislation?

They can also assist with office compliance for the operator to help them stay the right side of the DVSA. They will be with you every step of the way.

If you operate a motor fleet you need to ensure that vehicles are roadworthy and drivers comply with traffic and drivers’ hours rules. At the same time you are also responsible to the wider public, through the traffic commissioner, for ensuring that your operator is compliant.

How do you know you are the correct side of the law?

Digital tachographs and drivers hours: know your responsibilities

Traffic commissioners say some operators are blind to what their operators are doing and what their vehicles are being used for – could this mean prison for directors if a major incident occured?

Recent public inquiries held by the Traffic Commissioner have held directors responsible for failed systems.

Restricted licence holders are the most common type of operator licence, and as a consequence of a restricted licence not requiring a qualified transport manager this is also the most common licence to be brought to the attention of the Traffic Commissioner.

A system of audit and follow up visits will prevent licence curtailments and revocations
