CPC Transport Manager Referrals

Transport Managers are equally responsible for the legal undertakings associated with the Standard National Operators Licence. It is vitally important that your nominated CPC Transport Manager is of good standing and repute, appropriately qualified, and has completed a Refresher course within the last 5 years. You should also be advised that Freelance Transport Managers are limited to cover up to a maximum of 50 vehicles with no more than 4 separate operators. Applications are often referred to the Commissioner where there is doubt about the professional competence of the nominated Transport Manager. Use our referral service for added peace of mind.
