The Road Haulage Association’s third annual National Lorry Week runs from September 11-16 and a busy schedule of events will be taking place across the UK.
Events will be informative, fun and all will have the same goal – to show just how important the industry that transports 90 per cent of all goods by land in the UK is to the economy.
But National Lorry Week isn’t just about the truck and the theme of this year’s event is ‘The Next Generation’. Government statistics show that by 2022, the industry needs to recruit 1.2 million more people. Drivers, workshop technicians, warehouse operatives, management.
Members will be engaging with schoolchildren, students and members of the public at schools, colleges and in town centres.
