The Road Haulage Association is pleased to announce that one of the UKs biggest transport operators Eddie Stobart, has become a member.

“This is great news for the RHA and all its members,” said RHA chief executive Richard Burnett. “We have spent the past six months working hard to modernise our strategy on all levels and we are actively focussing on raising the profile of the Association and providing better commercial deals for members.

“The addition of Eddie Stobart to our membership is great news. Every RHA member, whether an owner driver or a multi-million pound operation is important to us and we pride ourselves in giving the same, high level of service, regardless of company size.

“The commitment of a such a high profile operator will increase our buying power when negotiating the best deals for members with suppliers and will further enhance our already strong influence with government, opinion formers and key decision makers when lobbying for a fair deal for the industry”.

Commenting, Eddie Stobart Ltd CEO William Stobart said: “We are pleased to be counted among the membership of the UKs Road Haulage Association - dedicated to the needs of road freight operators. The RHA works hard for the industry on all levels. In particular it has put the issue of the driver shortage firmly on the political agenda. A united industry has far greater power to bring about change and, without doubt, we will be stronger together."
