As with many industries, road transport faces a demographic problem due to the lack of young people entering the business, it seems that few school leavers see the industry as an attractive prospect and many look to other sectors when considering a future career. There is no simple answer to this problem, in many developed countries society has fostered the belief that any job that involves getting your hands dirty should be left to the less academically gifted.

In Britain, we have taken this process further than many other countries and to a certain extent it has backfired, previous governments promoted university education and the obtaining a degree as the only possible way ahead for young people, other forms of training and education were almost eradicated. A generation were led to believe that any other career path would be seen as failure, now we have scores of people with degree qualifications, (sometimes in the most pointless of subjects).

Announcement

HeavyTorque White Logo

It is with regret, that the HeavyTorque team have decided to take a stand based on an industry-wide ‘blind eye’ to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business.

HeavyTorque (#15, July 2018) was the final issue to grace the shop shelves, both on the High Street and across the travel network. As part of our onward strategy to adapt, HeavyTorque will now be distributed exclusively through controlled circulation and available through printed subscription.

Please note, this change will only affect newsstand purchasers. There will be no change for our loyal print subscribers.

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer (in good conscience) participate in a distribution programme that creates such an inherent waste of our precious natural resources – and money.

For those of you who have enjoyed HeavyTorque from the newsstand, we sincerely appreciate your business – and we would hope that you’ve enjoyed the magazine enough to consider a direct subscription?
