UK international freight companies will be just one of the market sectors who will hopefully benefit from quicker deliveries next year. The government have announced plans to raise the national speed limit from 50 mph to 60 mph for lorries travelling on dual carriageways, following the increase in speed limits for HGVs on single carriageways announced in July this year.

The announcement will ensure that as of 6 April 2015, lorry drivers have speed limits that are better suited to a modern transport network.

The changes to speed limits will update previous regulation dating back to the 1980’s.
