The RHA has launched a new campaign this week which seeks to shine a spotlight on the heroes of the transport and logistics industry.

Dubbed RHA Heroes, the initiative aims to encourage the industry to recognise staff and teams who’ve stood out for their hard work, dedication and commitment over the last year.

The five-week annual campaign – formerly HGV Heroes – has been expanded to include the coach and van sectors to reflect the RHA’s new membership base.

RHA Chief Executive, Richard Burnett is urging firms and others in the industry to nominate their colleagues and teams for an RHA Heroes award.

He said: “There’s no better time than after an exceptionally difficult year to acknowledge the amazing things people do day in, day out.

“We’re asking people in our industry to recognise drivers, mechanics, warehouse staff, admin teams, and anyone else who deserves an award.”

The campaign has its own website - - and will also feature on the RHA’s social media and news channels.

All nominations will receive an RHA Heroes ‘Thank You’ certificate before a panel of industry figures decide on a winning RHA Hero or team of heroes. Winners will receive an experience prize of their choice to the value of £1,000.

The closing date for entries is Sunday 6 June.
