New boost for haulage apprenticeships

New proposals for lorry driver apprenticeships streamline and improve funding support from April 2017. The new structure should make LGV driver, and other apprenticeships, more attractive for smaller hauliers and follow strong lobbying of government.

The RHA response is set out in a press release here. Member queries should be sent to deputy director of policy, Colin Snape, at c.snape@rha.uk.net.

Trailer and container stolen

The RHA has passed information to NaVCIS, the police agency, on the theft of a trailer/container stolen late Monday night/early Tuesday this week from the secure yard of an RHA member at Eagle Industrial Estate, Bagnall Street, Great Bridge, West Midlands.

The SDC skeletal had '51' on the front and “T.Baker & Sons” company logo.

The brown shipping container (Serial No: TRLU 7317709) had a load of generators on board.

Any Information? Contact West Midlands Police on 101 or NaVCIS or c.rampley@rha.uk.net.

Seat belt law ignored

Lorry drivers are generally the best-trained and most professional on the road – but far too many are still ignoring the law on wearing seat belts. That was brought home to the RHA on a day with Essex Police last week.

Around one in every five or six trucks was driven by a driver who didn’t have his seat belt on. In a relatively short period, a dozen drivers were issued with £100 fixed penalty notices and the same number escaped police censure.

The RHA urges members to tighten up on compliance with this law, which is well accepted.

Injury and hold-up waiting to happen

Apart from mobile phones, the main message from Essex Police related to load securing. RHA head of technical services, Ray Engley, has been working with several police forces and with DVSA on loading issues.

An example of what the police see is shown in Ray’s two pictures below, with a single frayed rope under winch tension holding two cars – just about.

Diesel roller coaster riding up again

Wholesale diesel prices have risen by almost 5ppl in two weeks, continuing the volatility seen since the EU Referendum result on June 24.

While the RHA's bulk fuel price survey last Friday recorded an average of 85.65ppl ex vat – this Friday is likely to see prices nearer to 89ppl, an increase of nearly 4%.

Oil industry experts now forecast an increase of 24% in 2017 to around $56 a barrel.

500-truck overnight park in Kent

The planned lorry holding area in Kent will have 500 overnight spaces with washing and toilet facilities for daily use, as well as another 3,600 spaces available when needed for Operation Stack.

This is revealed in a new consultation document from Highways England. Drivers will be charged when Stack is not in operation but the HE is asking for views on how the service should operate. The chosen site is at Stanford West on the M20 close to junction 11.

The RHA has been lobbying for more parking in Kent. We are discussing the plans with the HE and welcome member feedback.

A2 lorry park re-opens
The popular Marling Cross lorry park off the A2 at Grevesend has re-opened after five months’ closure. The RHA has welcomed the re-opening but says much more parking is needed in Kent.

Construction in recession before Brexit vote

The construction sector slipped into recession with two consecutive three-month periods of decline since the start of 2016, official figures show. June was down 2.2% against the same month last year. Output fell in both building and maintenance.

Further reductions are forecast following the Brexit vote.

Foreign workers in warehouses

'Warehousing and support for transport' depends on foreign people for 23.5% of its workforce, with 12% coming from Eastern European EU members and 9% coming from outside the EU, says a new report from the Resolution Foundation.

The report urges investment in technology to reduce reliance on foreign workers but recognises that options for that are limited in some sectors.
