RHA pushes for Brexit meeting with Theresa May

The RHA is pressing for a meeting with new prime minister Theresa May to discuss future Brexit negotiations and their impact on the logistics industry.

“We congratulate Mrs May on her appointment as Prime Minister and are pressing for a meeting with her as soon as possible,” said RHA chief executive, Richard Burnett.  “The logistics industry employs over 2.2 million people and is a vital component of UK plc.

“It is therefore essential that as Prime Minister she understands that the needs and interests of our industry must be taken into account during the forthcoming Brexit negotiations.

“We enjoyed a constructive relationship with Mrs May’s team when she was Home Secretary which resulted in added security for our cross channel drivers who were suffering violence and intimidation as a result of the migrant crisis.”
