Traffic Commissioner keynote speaker at Logistics UK Fleet Engineer

Kevin Rooney

Kevin Rooney, the Traffic Commissioner for the West of England, will be sharing his unique insight into how transport operators can avoid making common mistakes in the maintenance of modern fleets at Logistics UK’s 2021 Fleet Engineer Conference, taking place at the British Motor Museum in Warwickshire on 7 September 2021.

At the industry leading conference, Mr Rooney will be explaining the challenges of maintaining highly technical and alternatively fuelled vehicles effectively and sharing case studies of practices operators have put in place to ensure their modern fleets are well maintained. He comments:

“Fit and serviceable: that is what you are told your vehicles and trailers must be. But what does that mean in practice today? It could be more than the basics and include modern technology – cameras might be just as important as a clear windscreen.  Not just that, either – it is important to meet any regional requirements too. This conference is focused on continuous improvement which is key to the maintenance process and that is why I am very happy to support it on behalf of all Traffic Commissioners.”

The conference will provide delegates with an opportunity to hear about the very latest developments in commercial vehicle technology, future vehicle design, maintenance legislation changes, and best practice advice from leading names from across the sector, including senior representatives from Volvo, Renault, BPW, Siemens Mobility and Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). The event is sponsored by VARTA Batteries, UK Recovery (AA), TotalKare and Tip Europe.

Phil Lloyd, Head of Engineering Policy at Logistics UK, comments: “I am delighted Kevin Rooney, the Traffic Commissioner for the West of England, will be joining us at Fleet Engineer 2021 to share his considerations on how to ensure vehicles and trailers are inspected properly and that technological safety features are being maintained effectively.  As vehicle and trailer technology continues to evolve at a rapid rate, keeping maintenance and inspection programmes aligned with this change is becoming increasingly challenging for commercial vehicle workshops and their engineers. Fleet Engineer is an essential event for anyone responsible for maintenance of fleets.”
