The Heavies 2020: Bigger, Better and Back at Peterborough Arena

While much of modern life seems confusing in the extreme and the uncertainty over the country’s future direction makes long-term planning difficult, Nimble Publishing, producer of the heavy transport industry’s only dedicated title HeavyTorque is delighted to be able to give advanced notice of The Heavies 2020, our fifth awards evening. This is a firm date for everybody’s diary and a great opportunity to meet and celebrate everything that’s truly great about this unique sector of the transport industry.

The specialist heavy transport industry’s very own awards evening is to be held on 20 March 2020, at Peterborough Arena at the East of England Showground. The first-rate facilities and central position make this the ideal location, with easy access and the ability to accommodate large heavy haulage combinations. This now biannual event has proven to be the perfect opportunity for all in the industry to meet and enjoy each other’s company and showcase excellence in all aspects of this unique and truly diverse sector of road transport.

Teams of dedicated professionals utilise some of the largest, most complex vehicles and equipment to achieve transport, lifting and installation projects that often seem near impossible to the layman. The business of moving the largest of loads, on the UK’s underfunded and deteriorating road network, throws up new challenges for the industry almost on a daily basis. Customers demand higher levels of service, often with greater time restraints and other stringent requirements – but the specialists within the industry continue to find ways to meet their needs.

It’s also an opportunity for vehicle, trailer and associated equipment manufacturers to both showcase their products and compete with their competitors for a range of awards that reflect the technical innovation and the advanced designs that are key to almost every specialist transport operation.

We are delighted to welcome back our guest presenter and BBC broadcaster Sally Boazman, better known as Sally Traffic, who will announce and present the awards for us, ably assisted once again, by Jon Harle, a regular contributor to HeavyTorque.

At the Heavies 2020, we will celebrate the winners and those who are highly commended, furthermore it’s also an opportunity to thank the industry’s movers and shakers who generously support this event.

Remember 20/3/2020: a firm date for your diary!

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?
