We are pleased to announce that Proper Oils has joined the Freight Transport Association (FTA).
The FTA is one of the UK’s largest trade associations and represents the interests of the transport and logistics industry. It provides members with services that help them to operate safely, efficiently, and in an environmentally sustainable way.
To ensure Proper Oils works to best practice, and keeps up-to-date with all the legislation, we have recently joined the FTA. This means we get emails about legislation, the Yearbook of Road Transport Law, and access to advice to assist us in any areas of the law or operations which we need help with.
The law requires companies who operate Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGV) to operate them safely and prove they are doing this. This includes providing continuous professional development training for drivers, carrying out daily inspections, organising periodic maintenance inspections. The FTA operate a telephone helpline for members which will help us answer any technical queries. We can also display the FTA logo which proves to others that we are a member of a trade body to ensure we have the best advice to manage our transport operation.
Joining the FTA demonstrates our commitment to working to best practice, and providing our customers with the best possible cooking oil delivery, collection and recycling service.
