About Us

Launched in February 2007, the Transports' Friend website was a FREE to use online information portal promoting Road Safety and Operator Compliance. It was specifically designed for the Road Haulage Industry (Drivers & Operators), although it is a pertinent information resource site to all that is involved in Road Transport. The site is operated and managed by real-life industry experts working in the transport and logistics compliance sector.

Starting up and maintaining a lawful presence within today's Road Transport Industry is dependent upon, many factors and the understanding and abiding of many rules and regulations that govern it. The Transports' Friend website is designed to offer guidance and support on all aspects of transport law, from an initial operators licence application, through to the Health and Safety, Best Practice, and even some Employment requirements.

Since the days of control books to the infancy of digital tachographs, the market has struggled to understand how lorry drivers and managers alike have been expected to decipher and comprehend the confusing transport legislation that is forced upon them. Like you, we've asked ourselves many times over the years why all the information to assist in the successful running of any transport operation isn't all together under one roof - well now it is, welcome to the New Transports' Friend website.

Transports' Friend is not wholly about licenses and trucks, but equally about the many other issues that the industry has to face, including the everyday issues relating to Health and Safety and Employment Law. As a result, Transports' Friend brings together everything specific to a particular sector of the industry, offering guidance and advice that is straightforward, simple, and in plain English.

This website has Transport Directories and hundreds of pages of the information under the many sector headings. There is also a standalone section of industry news that is linked from a news section on the home page. In total there are many pages of industry news added every month, including updates from DVSA, Road Safety, Press releases, and industry information that is useful to all readers. We will be adding specialist manufacturer information and content to help you better understand changes in the marketplace.

For those companies seeking a media platform that has a distinctive presence in the transport industry, the Transports' Friend website enjoys a solid presence and previously receiving an average of 8.3 million hits per annum and an average of 35,000 visitors every month, which is growing year on year. This new website will bring even more and this could be your opportunity to take advantage of the additional traffic.

It's hoped that the fact that you're viewing our site is that that you have some interest in the Transport & Logistics market or be a licensed operator.
