Chancellor urged to help hauliers

01 May 2020

Road hauliers face going bust because of Covid-19, the Road Haulage Association has told the Government. A recent survey by the Association found that 46 per cent of the UK’s truck fleet is not operating and 25 percent of drivers are furloughed. The RHA this week wrote to the Chancellor with a plea to help the sector by taking five actions:

  • a 100%, government-backed, invoice financing package (debt support)
  • moving to a weekly furlough of staff to provide a flexible return to businesses
  • a suspension of fuel duty and a rebate for hauliers
  • a business rates holiday for all hauliers’ sites
  • a lorry retention scheme for vehicles not being used (sector specific)
