Uncontrollable forces dictate the price you have to pay for a litre of diesel, faceless bureaucrats in Brussels hand down restrictive directive after directive, while all around you the competition closes in. Rival firms are looking to steal your customers and turn your staff, but the public still relies on you to provide a national service.
It's an explosive concoction and time is in short supply. The clock is ticking. If you hide in the dark of the depot, twitching the blinds and hoping for external help, you may find it is not forthcoming. The government has failed to provide, rejecting mayday calls for a cut in fuel duty and now the future of your fleet needs you to be proactive.
If there is any way to safeguard your company's future in the space of a day, you will uncover it on Friday April 29th at Birmingham's NEC. More than 18,000 high-level movers and shakers from Great Britain and beyond will descend on the Midlands in an intelligence-gathering mission.
You must ensure you're a part of this. Your fleet needs you.
Top secret stat: You are in a competitive environment. There are 35.7 million commercial vehicles in Europe, while 5.9 million medium and heavy trucks account for more than three-quarters of all inland transports in a £210 billion industry.
