The Road Haulage Association represents over 10,000 transport companies that operate within the hire-and-reward sector of the UK based logistics sector.
The association provides dedicated advice, information and business services tailored to the needs of its membership. Another vital role is that of negotiator. Not just in high profile discussions with Government on national issues; but also through regular contact with local planning committees, regional transport groups and, of course, the European Commission.
In fact there is no legislative area of the haulage industry that is not scrutinised and actively pursued on behalf of UK hauliers, by the Road Haulage Association.
The association is presently involved in, amongst other issues:
. The un-competitive state of the industry, due to high levels of fuel duty.
. The European Training Directive / Driver CPC.
. The replacement EU drivers' hours regulations and UK interpretation.
Specialists are available to members in Operator Licensing; Health & Safety; Employment, Infrastructure Issues; Security; Technical; International Affairs; Training; Hazardous Goods Transportation and Management Services.
