The skills shortage and the industry's image will be at the forefront of a workshop hosted by the RHA at the Microlise Transport Conference.

The Driving Britain's Future workshop will be hosted by the association's director of policy Jack Semple on 17 May.

It will also focus on the potential impacts of Brexit on the sector and driver health and welfare.

RHA chief executive Richard Burnett said: “We are excited to be returning again to the Microlise Transport Conference – a must-attend event for anyone working in haulage and fleet operations.

“The Microlise Transport Conference has grown rapidly over recent years, reflecting the quality and importance of the event. We at the RHA look forward to contributing to what will again be a fantastic and valuable day.”

The workshop will take place throughout the day of the event in its exhibition area.

Speakers at the conference are to include senior traffic commissioner Beverley Bell and the DVSA's head of enforcement policy Gordon MacDonald.

Registration for the event, taking place on 17 May, is open now.
