Trucks are essential to the UK economy - and that must be recognised. We are proud to have a road haulage profession that is efficient, responsive and perhaps the safest in Europe - and we aim to ensure that it stays that way. Haulage operations are perennial targets for high taxes, more regulation and controls and that is being given a new twist with the green agenda and climate change. The RHA is at the forefront of political activity, representing your interests with Government, in Europe, in local affairs as well as with other industry bodies. We are constantly campaigning on your behalf and gather your views at regional and specialist group meetings, events and seminars. The RHA is the voice of the UK road transport industry – join us and make it stronger.

Member benefits include:


  • Use the Area manager and helpdesk services for telephone and face to face support on operators licensing and employment issues, driver’s hours and tachographs, current and future legislation, legal and technical advice and assistance with authorities such as DVSA and the department of transport.
  • Use of the RHA logo on company stationery.
  • RHA stickers for your vehicles.
  • Use of the RHA Conditions of Carriage which are copyrighted for RHA members and can limit your liability and reduce your goods in transit insurance. We are aware that some people trade under these conditions without being in membership. You must be an RHA member to trade under these conditions. There are recent cases of claims adjustors not agreeing limited liability due to people trading under the conditions and not being members and if you are not a member it may cause issues with your insurance company in the event of a claim.
