The RHA is warning that a plan for thousands of lorry drivers to strike on 23 August to demand better pay and conditions will only put more pressure on drivers and the supply chain by exacerbating the driver shortage crisis. The call for a nationwide strike of lorry drivers on 23 August is posted on a Facebook group page named “HGV drivers on STRIKE United Kingdom”, which has over 3,300 members. It urges all HGV drivers to join the strike […]
An HGV driver who abandoned his unhitched trailer on a roundabout to buy alcohol at a supermarket has been jailed.
The coming 12 months will see us released from lockdown, though challenges remain with the Christmas peak, IR35 tax reforms, VAT repayments and Brexit border controls coming into force. Not to mention the possibility of a second wave of Covid-19.
Temporary visas for HGV drivers are the only way to fill an immediate need for truckers if the supply chain is to continue running through the peak period, according to the RHA.
