Written by Michael Selinger

The Chain of Responsibility (CoR) is a concept of relevance for ANY company or individual involved in the supply chain who has influence over how goods are delivered or received by heavy vehicle. Understanding it is imperative — not only so you can protect your business, your employees and the public, but also so you can rest assured you’re meeting all of your obligations under Heavy Vehicle National Law.
