The Road Haulage Association is pleased to announce that one of the UK’s biggest transport operators Eddie Stobart, has become a member.
The trade association for hire and reward road transport and logistics operators have been working hard over the past six months to modernise their strategy and raising the profile of the Association to provide better commercial deals for members so securing the Stobart brand as a member will be a big shot in the arm.
“The addition of Eddie Stobart to our membership is great news. Every RHA member, whether an owner driver or a multi-million pound operation is important to us and we pride ourselves in giving the same, high level of service, regardless of company size.
“The commitment of a such a high profile operator will increase our buying power when negotiating the best deals for members with suppliers and will further enhance our already strong influence with government, opinion formers and key decision makers when lobbying for a fair deal for the industry”.
Commenting, Eddie Stobart Ltd CEO William Stobart said: “We are pleased to be counted among the membership of the UKs Road Haulage Association – dedicated to the needs of road freight operators. The RHA works hard for the industry on all levels. In particular it has put the issue of the driver shortage firmly on the political agenda. A united industry has far greater power to bring about change and, without doubt, we will be stronger together.”
