Van support from trade groups

A new working group to examine issues relevant to commercial vehicle distribution and servicing is to be set up by the Retail Motor Industry Federation (RMIF) and the Vehicle & Operator Services Agency (VOSA).

Alistair Manson, head of the RMIF's commercial vehicle division, said: 'The RMIF's National Truck Council and VOSA will be joining forces to debate issues and objectives specific to the retail commercial vehicle industry that fall outside the remit of VOSA's existing industry liaison groups.'

He added: 'We have been keen to progress a closer, more practical working relationship with VOSA since the arrival of its new chief executive Stephen Tetlow last year - the formation of this new group allows us to pinpoint afresh the key challenges specific to this sector.'

Topics to be discussed include trade plate usage, annual testing and safety inspection processes.
