You’ll have noted; there’s a lot of doom and gloom around at the moment. With concerns over the economy, political strife and our relationship with Europe, you’d think there’s no positive news to fuel our optimism.
Bucking this trend, news from the commercial vehicle manufacturing sector shows that 2018 was a very successful year for the sector. And while there may be rocky times ahead the past year has been a high water mark for the commercial vehicle body builders industry.
Here are the headlines.

There are loads of significant advantages to being a commercial driver. The flexible hours, the overtime pay, or visiting new and exciting places both in the UK and abroad. Indeed, many drivers list these parts of the job as the ones they enjoy the most.
Looked at from the outside, these things do look good. There’s no boss continually looking over your shoulder – great! You can listen to your favourite shows on the radio – brilliant. What’s not to like?
And with the continuing advances in commercial vehicles from innovative truck body builders, the job’s becoming increasingly easier and more comfortable.

Commercial driving is a tough business. It takes a certain kind of person to travel the thousands of annual miles the job entails. Even in good conditions, it’s an exacting trade and the onset of severe winter weather brings additional challenges to the role.
That’s why the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) winter driving and fuel efficiency guides are so useful. These publications offer a comprehensive digest on how fleet drivers can mitigate the worst of the winter weather on both themselves and their vehicle. The accompanying fuel management guide covers the essential knowledge and skills required to drive in a way that promotes fuel efficiency.

In life, it’s so important to have loyal and trusted friends. People you can rely on to give you the help you need to meet your goals and solve problems. That’s why at Truckcraft Bodies were pleased to have partnered with TRAILAR in the development of our new generation of delivery vehicles.
And with TRAILAR’s recent success in the Freight Transport Association (FTA) awards for the ‘most innovative product’ category, it’s great to know we’re using the very best solar technology a truck body builder company can source.

There was a time when the only refrigerated vehicle you would see on a regular basis would be an ice cream van. Hordes of excited kids would flock towards the van’s chimes begging their parents to buy them an icy treat.
Nowadays, temperature-controlled vehicles are a common sight on our roads. Home grocery deliveries happen in neighbourhoods every day bringing frozen and ambient foods to our doors in perfect condition. Most people probably don’t know, or think, about the refrigeration technology that supports this modern way to shop.

Things are changing in the Capital. From April 2019 new emissions legislation will add to the costs of busy transport companies who make regular trips to central London. These increases will be especially acute for those whose truck fleet is especially old.
The current ‘T-Charge’ that operates in central London is to be expanded to cover all areas within the North and South Circular roads by October 2021. It will be known as the Ultra-Low Emissions Zone or ULEZ.

We can’t ignore the growing evidence. Climate change is affecting every one of us in some small way. And the effects on our planet are becoming alarmingly apparent. The news regularly tells us of the ongoing impacts of global warming on the oceans, on our wildlife, our rainforests and the Arctic.
It’s becoming worrying, and it’s clear we all have to do something to make a difference. To try to change the path we’re on.
This is why Truckcraft Bodies are taking a leading stance in the commercial vehicle industry. As an innovative company, we are continually looking for ways to help the transport sector to become a good global neighbour and save money for your business.
