ABSTRACT
This article reports on the meeting of the steering committee of the Freight Transport Special Interest Group (SIG) of the Institute of Logistics and Transport which focused on the directives of the European Union with regard to working time as applied to mobile workers, digital tachographs and driver training. The SIG decided to undertake a survey of selected institute members, ranging from family-owned transport companies to large logistics service providers. The results reflected expectations. Over 60 percent of respondents' companies has not started working through the implications of the directive on working time. The meeting noted that technical Annex 1B is causing the delay. However it will be two years after agreement that the directive on digital tachographs will be implemented for new vehicles. The SIG, with assistance from members of the institute's Skills Pool, submitted a response to the driver training directive in September 2001.
