With heavy snow forecast across the UK this week, drivers are being urged to prepare now to avoid delays and disruption to journeys over coming days.

FTA offers travel alerts, safety advice and a host of products to ensure professional drivers can stay on the road and get the job done this winter.

Practical safety information, tailored for commercial vehicles is available to all members on the FTA website.
