Why do I need an External Transport Manager contract?
Having a consultancy agreement in place prior to any services provided should be a priority for any consultant or client. A contract protects both parties by setting out their obligations clearly and reducing the risks of any disputes or misunderstandings.
Specifically regarding external transport manager work, and according to the Senior Traffic Commissioner’s Statutory Guidance and Statutory Directions for Transport Managers “an external transport manager may be hired in to fulfill the role of transport manager under a contract which specifies the tasks he or she will perform as the transport manager”. Remember that an external transport manager can only work for a maximum of 4 operators (not licences) with a combined total fleet of 50 authorised vehicles.
