Discover what this year's sponsors are discussing at Transport Manager 2016

30 September 2016

FTA’s Transport Manager series is supported by sponsors each year with each one having a stand in the refreshment area for delegates to visit, this year we have Headline Sponsor Iveco and supporting sponsors Goodyear Tyres and Microlise.

Total cost of ownership (TCO) seems to be a popular subject this year but what else are the sponsors talking about on their stands?


Iveco are proud to be headline sponsor of Transport Manager in 2016, this year our main focus is 'total cost of ownership' (TCO). This is an important subject for operators and one that commercial vehicle manufacturers across the board strive to reduce, this will form a key part of their presentation but experienced Iveco representatives will also be on hand to discuss and also go over the Iveco product range with you. There will also be one of the first new Stralis XP’s on display at each venue.

You can also visit the Iveco stand for two chances to win!  At each event one lucky delegate will win an Iveco branded rucksack containing a model Stralis XP, a universal travel adapter, useful LED torch and durable notebook. In addition one lucky winner will walk away with an amazing trip, inlcuding return flights and accommodation to the Ferrari factory in Maranello (terms and conditions apply). All delegates need to do is answer the question on the competition entry form, complete it and drop it into the prize draw box on the Iveco stand. The draw for the winner of the trip to Maranello will take palce on 3 December.
