RHA increases support for parliamentary freight group

The Road Haulage Association (RHA) has announced it will fund the appointment of a member of staff to support the work of the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on freight transport.

The APPG brings together MPs and peers, regardless of party, with experts and campaigners to promote freight transport issues and provide a forum to discuss challenges and opportunities facing the industry in all its forms.

Geoff Dunning, chief executive of the RHA, said: “This group presents many opportunities for our industry to make its voice heard in parliament and the RHA is delighted to support it by providing much needed resource for its work.

“We are confident that being able to facilitate the appointment of a dedicated member of staff who will focus on road freight in particular will help not only the work of the group itself but will also, in turn, help the Association provide an even louder voice within Westminster."
