JMW’s road transport and haulage specialists understand the needs of the logistics and passenger transport sectors and recognise that whilst some operators’ use of commercial vehicles is central to their business, for others it is merely an ancillary (albeit essential) part of their core business.  

Either way it is important that any legal issues relating to vehicles need to be managed effectively.
