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.
