If you hold a Standard National or Standard International Operator’s licence, you are obliged to employ a ‘professionally competent’ person to manage your transport operations. It is NOT necessary to employ a full-time Transport Manager to satisfy this legislative requirement, particularly if you are a small to medium sized operator with a relatively small fleet (e.g. 1-20 vehicles). Outsourcing your CPC (Certificate of Professional Competence) holder is an acceptable method of O licence compliance and provides a cost-effective solution at the fraction of the price of employing a dedicated member of staff.
The monthly fees for the provision of an external freelance Transport Manager CPC holder are subject to Operator Compliance Risk Scores (OCRS) as follows:
The first vehicle is chargeable at £350 and each additional vehicle thereafter, £100.
The first vehicle is chargeable at £500 and each additional vehicle thereafter, £150. Acceptance is strictly subject to a full DVSA compliance audit. Audit fees may apply.
Prices and terms on application. All fees are payable monthly in advance on flexible term contracts. Immediate cover available subject to terms and conditions.
If you hold a Restricted Operator’s licence, you are not obliged to employ a ‘professionally competent’ person to manage your transport operations. However, you are still subject to the same sets of regulations as higher-tier operator licence holders. We can offer a consultancy service on either a retainer or an ad-hoc basis, this service can include tachograph analysis and reporting. You will be provided with a comprehensive administration system for both vehicles and drivers to ensure you remain compliant with your licence undertakings.
Monthly Fee £75.00 per vehicle, minimum billing applies. Based on an initial 3-month contract, monthly thereafter.
