The RHA is a member-led trade association supporting people and businesses in the road transport industry.

We offer a voice for our members to work with governments, policy makers, and local authorities across the UK on the issues most important to them. We campaign on a breadth of priorities including changes to legislation, rising fuel costs, better roadside facilities, and the transition to a Net Zero transport system.

Our 8,500 members have access to technical and professional services to help them comply with industry regulations and assist them in running their businesses efficiently.

We also offer a wide range of accredited training programmes to help firms develop their teams and operations.

The majority of our members are small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) but we also represent larger firms across the sector.

We’ve been proudly supporting hauliers since 1945 and now include coach and van operators in our membership.

We champion the highest standards in our industry and work hard to be the go-to organisation for driving business on our roads.

We’re based in Peterborough and have offices in Bradford, and Bathgate in Scotland.

The RHA has recently commenced our 5-year strategy on ‘Equity at Work’ which is focused on ensuring inclusion, fairness, and consistency in all that we do. We know that our Industry needs to attract more underrepresented talent to be able to keep on doing what we do and therefore getting equality, diversity and inclusion on the agenda within every organisation in our Industry is so important.

We are proud to be supporting The Big Logistics Diversity Challenge as part of our commitment to diversity and inclusion. Whilst we are just at the start of our ‘Equity at Work’ journey, our long-term aspiration is to be able to inspire others in this area. To be involved in a day celebrating equality, diversity and inclusion with other like-minded organisations is really exciting and we can’t wait to get involved.
