Travel back in time with this load of pheasants
Check out the journey of a load of pheasants travelling from the UK all over the Continent. And travel back in time with this video into the golden era of international trucking when the letters TIR made our hearts beat faster.
Do you have memories about the queues at the borders? Or the old-school motorways? So many things have changed since then and so many things remain nearly unchanged. TIR still exacts, just like the organization called IRU whose documents the official handles. Paper maps have nearly disappeared. But what about the requirements of a reliable international driver?
The only driver who is any good to us on this sort of work is a mature man, over 30, married preferably, definitely with 10 years heavy driving experience, and responsible.” – says the official at the transport company.
Could you imagine such a job description today?
