It’s been a long, challenging spring and summer for all of us, but we have come through those dark and unprecedented days, albeit not totally unscathed, so welcome back to this, our first print issue of the magazine since March, although we hope you have continued to stay in touch through our website and newsletters.
Despite the lockdown, business has continued over the past six months, adapting to what has become, it seems, the ‘new norm’ and here at Export & Freight we look forward to helping promote your products, activities and services in the months ahead
We don’t know, none of us do, what the future holds; the Covid-19 virus has certainly not gone away, so we need to continue doing what we can to protect our businesses and our staff. That goes without saying! One thing is for sure, our economy and the country at large depends on the critical and continued support of the transport and logistics sector come what may, so a big ‘thank you’ is due to all our key workers in the industry who have gone above and beyond to protect the supply chain and everything else that is associated with it.
So, what have we got for you in this issue? All our regular features and columns are back, and we welcome some new additions – Pamela Dennison, CILT’s National Manager in Northern Ireland, and David Mullan, Head of the Transport Regulation Unit, both of whom will have a regular slot in the magazine going forward.
We also have an in-depth interview with Peter O’Reilly, the new Chief Executive Officer at Transport Training Services, and we have been speaking, too, to Sam Whittaker, National Sales Director for Mercedes-Benz Trucks UK.
Our test drives this issue focus on the new Volvo FM and the DAF XF480, on the van and pick-up front, we have contributions from ThermoKing, Peugeot, Ford and Maxus, and in our shipping section we hear from Michael Robinson, Port Director, Belfast Harbour, on how the port has been coping with the lockdown; we also feature our annual Port Review.
