FTA launches weather warning system for fleet managers


winter_roadsWith weather reports of snow and ice on the way, the FTA (Freight Transport Association) is offering up-to-date information on traffic and weather conditions that might affect transport operators.

FTA’s traffic service operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, providing vital amber and red winter weather alerts. Daily updates give information on UK road traffic and weather conditions affecting freight operations, with additional alerts on severe incidents.

There are also advance warnings of any severe weather forecasts issued by the Met Office. Further information is available on the FTA website .

The FTA website also contains advice for managers and drivers on dealing with poor weather conditions, such as the importance of operators ensuring vehicles are properly kitted out for wintry conditions. For delivery fleets, when conditions are severe operators should consider contacting customers to discuss delivery expectations and prioritise to keep fleet services running as efficiently as possible.

It’s definitely a useful site for fleet manager’s to bookmark.
