Truck and Track Summer 2023 Summer 2023 Truck and Track 3 SUMMER SUCCESS by Barbara Ryan, Publishing Director, Truck and Track Welcome to the Summer issue of Truck and Track magazine. As usual, this issue is jam packed with details of new products, new legislation, new appointments and a host of features relevant to our industry. We shine the spotlight on all aspects of haulage, logistics, rail freight, ports, pallet networks, dangerous goods handling, workshop equipment and the ever-evolving world of customs regulations. Next month’s Multimodal Show is also featured and I’m pleased to say that Truck and Track will be taking part on stand number 2085. As usual, we shall be handing out copies of this latest issue and we would be delighted to meet as many of you as possible at the NEC from 13th to 15th June. Once again, pallet networks feature strongly in this issue with many examples of success and growth. Paul Sanders, Chairman of the Association of Pallet Networks highlights increasing volumes with member companies reporting a total of seven million pallets delivered and 60% of pallets on Next Day delivery with 16% having an agreed time window. Safety success has also been highlighted with just 0.52 accidents per 100,000 pallets delivered. Continuing the pallet network theme, we have included a revealing Q & A session with David Brown, Managing Director of United Pallet Network. David shares details of his childhood days, his first jobs and his love of animals. As he says, “I’m a big animal lover. In fact, you could say that I have my own zoo with horses, dogs, cats and goats.” By the way, he’s also a passionate supporter of Liverpool FC! I’m sure you’ll find the interview a very interesting read. Elsewhere in the issue, we have included the usual mix of business news covering warehouse solutions, fuel management, recruitment, vehicle wash systems and OEM components.
