Britain’s Road Haulage Association (RHA) has launched its Vans initiative

“Many of our members operate vans as well as trucks,” said RHA Commercial Affairs MD, Richard Smith. “Representing their entire fleets seemed the obvious next step to make sure that our members get a complete care package.

“They work tremendously hard and we want to take away as many headaches as we can. For example, their vans as well as their trucks are covered by RHA Conditions of Carriage.

“As part of our best practice, we work with our members to set and maintain the standards the wider industry wants. Our compliance, audit and help desk services are available to assist them and their businesses at every stage.

“Leading change for the sector; we have close links to government and a policy team devoted to influencing government, linking industry to decision-makers and shaping the future of the sector both nationally and locally. We have a strong track record in ensuring the voice of our members is heard by policy makers.”

The RHA has also unveiled its Van Policy document – launched at the recent Commercial Vehicle Show in the UK.
