Coronavirus (COVID-19) has affected many people and their businesses over the last seven months – when lockdown officially began in late March 2020 – and finances have been drastically hit.

The UK economy contracted 2.2% at the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak and was the biggest fall in 41 years as 25% of all UK businesses were forced to close or temporarily pause trading.

At Lorry Route, compliant HGV routing offers affordable options to help with the struggling times the outbreak has brought to UK businesses.

With several pricing plans available, customers can choose which plan suits best whether you are an individual driver with a sole vehicle or a fleet manager in charge of multiple vehicles. We believe in compliant routing for all fleets, no matter the size of your business.

Our compliant routing software allows HGV drivers to generate the fastest, safest and greenest compliant routes for all sized vehicles within the UK. Using always up to date sat nav technology, users can generate the quickest route within seconds. Our maps can divert you away from narrow roads, road closures, low bridges, Low Emission Zones, upcoming Ultra Low Emission Zones and London lorry route bans.

By generating the fastest compliant route, drivers can save money on diesel. With many road restrictions throughout the UK, HGV drivers are sometimes limited to specific routes leaving them vulnerable to road offences and penalties. Our maps successfully assist drivers in avoiding Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) fines by using turn by turn navigation through the Lorry Route app.

The software however also allows drivers to obtain knowledge to make decisions on which route is more compliant. Some journeys can increase road time which will increase fuel but a longer journey can assist drivers in avoiding charges. A slightly longer journey on the road can be financially cheaper in the long run with tolls and congestion charges all taken into consideration when generating tailored routes.

Following the repercussions of COVID-19 – which has tightened businesses’ budgets up and down the UK – Lorry Route understand unnecessary PCN’s are an unwelcome addition to any businesses’ finances. That is why our HGV route planner software is available for all HGV drivers to help save money and time spent on the roads.
