Transport Manager Services
A small or medium sized company cannot afford a full-time Transport Manager and sometimes do not understand the role and responsibilities of a Transport Manager.
If you operate a vehicle over 3,500 kg (3.5 tonnes) or 9+ Passenger seats you are required by law to have an Operators’ Licence (O’ Licence), which means by default that you need a qualified CPC Transport Manager.
Different to running your day to day operations activities, a Transport Manager is required to ensure you are operating legally and within the requirements of your Operators License and the rules and regulations set out by The Department of Transport regulated by Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).
If you’re purchasing your first vehicle you will need an Operators’ Licence and this means you need a qualified CPC holder, which is in effect a Transport Manager.
CPC Holder Provision
We can act as your interim or permanent CPC holder or Transport Manager. Due to the duties involved and the requirements of legislation, I can only undertake this role for a limited number of companies so please contact me for more information.
