Traffic Commissioner’s for Great Britain and the DVSA have worked together to launch a new online service which will replace the existing Operator Self Service System.
Moving with the times and realising that digital was the way to go, they are encouraging all operators to get online, which in turn saves times, makes things easier and is a lot more efficient.
The new system is much more user friendly and will allow you to apply and manage your vehicle operator licences online. You will be able to add more vehicles, apply to increase vehicle limits and apply to add a transport manager.
It has been launched in ‘beta’ system and initially the site will be going through a period of testing and improvement, guided by user feedback. Existing users of the old system will be able to log in with the same username and password as before, new users will need to follow a few simple steps to sign up to the new system.
Make sure you check out this new online service, for more details click here.
A survey undertaken by specialist research agency Analytiqa on behalf of Barclays and Moore Stephens has recently been released.
Respondents of the survey included some of the industry’s most senior decision-makers and despite the uncertainty over the UK economy and the risks associated with Brexit, confidence amongst UK’s logistics businesses has risen according to the survey.
Barclays and Moore Stephens UK Logistics Confidence Index has revealed that:
Confidence in the UK logistics sector is at its highest point since the second half of 2015
43.9% believe that business conditions have stayed "the same" over the last six months
37.4% believe that business conditions have been "somewhat more difficult" over the last six months
48.6% expect the outlook for the sector to be "somewhat more difficult" in the next six months
58.9% of operators expect their revenues to increase by 2.5%-5.0% next year
43.9% expect to "increase headcount" over the next six months
Whilst the survey demonstrated some positive responses, it also highlighted some key issues facing logistics businesses in the coming six months:
40% feel that "customer price pressure" will be the most important issue to face their business
35% believe a "lack of skilled staff" will be the most important issue their business faces
8.7% are concerned over shortage of "warehouse space"
43.7% perceive a "marginally negative impact" to Brexit outcome.
Reflecting on these results businesses were also asked how important is the use of technology to their business: help your business gain a competitive advantage?
60.2% felt that the use of technology is "very important" in order to help their business gain a competitive advantage
33% thought it is "reasonably important" to help their business gain a competitive advantage
It is clear from these results that technology for the UK logistics sector is seen as a major player to gaining a competitive advantage and avoiding unproductive price wars.

Road Tech Computer Systems are celebrating the phenomenal success of Tachomaster, their tachograph analysis system. Tachomaster was launched by the company in 2006 when tachographs went digital and this week, Tachomaster completed its 90,000,000th drivers card, chart and vehicle download, making it the undisputed market leader. A spokesperson for the company said: “We know how many drivers cards have been issued by the DVLA and we know how many have been seen by our servers, so the numbers are an exact science.”
Although they have been successfully writing and developing software exclusively for the transport industry since 1984, Road Tech were never previously in the tachograph analysis market and launched Tachomaster without having a single customer. With the imminent arrival of the digital tachograph, they saw an opportunity to completely revolutionise the tachograph market, by writing a system that went way beyond compliance and utilised the information held on the drivers card, chart, and the tacho head. Tachomaster was the only system to offer, not just instant live real time tachograph analysis, but detailed management information about an operators two most costly assets, the vehicle and the driver.
The price of Tachomaster remains unchanged since its 2006 launch, although it is constantly developed, giving its customers unrivalled reporting and systems integration with four other Road Tech systems. Tachomasters ongoing development and systems integration affords its customers a real insight into the efficiency of their businesses, consequently, it is now being used by most of the UK’s leading supermarkets and hauliers.
