Freight Best Practice


The Driver CPC requires all drivers to complete a minimum of 35 hours periodic traning within every five year period and will help raise the bar for fuel efficiency, safety and service for the whole industry. 

Freight Best Practice has been working with Skills for Logistics and with the Joint Approvals Unit for Periodic Training (JAUPT) to ensure that the programme's publications support the CPC syllabus.  As a result, the programme's publications have been mapped to the CPC syllabus and support of the individual CPC objectives.
