A blockade of Calais by French hauliers and farmers demanding the immediate removal of the migrant camps, launched this week, will make drivers a sitting target for migrant attacks and could trigger Operation Stack, the FTA and RHA have warned. RHA chief executive Richard Burnett said: “The inevitable repercussions of this will surely mean that the authorities on this side of the Channel will have no alternative but to deploy Operation Stack. This will bring yet further misery to hauliers […]
The freeze in fuel duty until the end of the current parliament will deliver “significant benefits to the British freight industry” according to the MD of one of the UK’s largest haulage firms.
The RHA has slammed Scottish first minister Nicola Sturgeon’s criticism of HGVs for using trunk roads in heavy snow as “naïve in the extreme”.
