Following today’s announcement by the Prime Minister that she will be stepping down from her role on 7 June, the Road Haulage Association is adamant that it will continue to dedicate its resources to bring about the best possible result for Britain’s transport and logistics operators over Brexit.

Commenting, RHA chief executive Richard Burnett said: “We acknowledge the tireless work of Theresa May to engineer the best possible result for the UK in its preparations to leave the EU on 31 October. It is extremely regrettable that not only do we face a no-deal departure, but we are still in the dark as regards clarity as to future cross border processes.

“We will ensure that the collective voice of the UK haulage industry is heard loud and clear. Transport operators need, incentives and clarity. Without these vital elements, the future of the industry on which the nation’s economy relies looks extremely bleak.”
