The Road Haulage Association welcomes the transport committee’s timely report on road haulage report, published today, which fairly sets out many of the challenges facing the industry and is pleased that it reflects many of the points that the RHA has been making to government since 2014.

Commenting, RHA chief executive Richard Burnett said: “Today’s report represents a fair reflection of the issues facing the industry. But let’s not lose sight of the positives . This is a great, diverse and vital industry with a wealth of opportunities  - and we need to get that message across.”

The committee report highlights the essential contribution that road haulage makes to the UK economy and well-being of its citizens – a fact that is too often overlooked by politicians.

“The very real challenges facing the industry must be balanced with the range of career opportunities within this very large and progressive sector,” continued Richard Burnett. “The road haulage and logistics sector has something from everyone, whether in warehousing, driving, management, IT, finance and business development.”
