The Road Haulage Association is calling on the political party leaders to ensure the future stability and prosperity of the UK road haulage industry.

Measures within the Association’s manifesto include:

  • Road investment and facilities to support competitiveness
  • The unfair fuel duty differential between the UK and the rest of Europe
  • Emissions and air quality and the need for a realistic HGV scrappage scheme
  • The skills shortage within the industry
  • Brexit, including measure to maintain border controls at Calais

Britain’s hauliers are responsible for moving 85% of the UK economy. It is essential that the new administration understands and is sympathetic to the needs of the industry on which the entire population of the UK depends.
