Keeping up to date with industry regulations can involve a lot of legwork. At Chartwise UK, we understand that your day is full enough without you having to scour trade magazines and government websites for the latest updates to road transport best practices. That’s why we have created a series of webinars covering each area of fleet management; from Drivers Hours regulations and Earned Recognition to Defect Classifications and the OCRS.
Our webinars are designed to cut a clear path through the jungle of legal-speak that the industry can sometimes resemble; they provide an overview of all aspects of road transport, in English plain enough to digest with your coffee and biscuits.
