Yes! You are the Legal Primary Duty Holder

You are a Chain of Responsibility (CoR) party because of a function you perform, not because of a title or job description, or the words of a contract. If you engage in any of the above activities, you or your business are accountable for heavy vehicle safety according to your Primary Duty.

More than half the Chain of Responsibility (CoR) functions relate to people and businesses that do not own or operate a heavy vehicle. A good rule of thumb is when your business sends or receives goods via a heavy vehicle, it’s a party in the core Chain of Responsibility (CoR)
