RHA tackles fuel duty, skills and Brexit in Manifesto

The RHA has called on party leaders to “ensure the future stability and prosperity of the UK road haulage industry.

The association has created a new manifesto, which encourages a number of improvements and changes, including:

  • 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 measures to maintain border controls at Calais.
