Brexit and the UK Road Haulage Industry – RHA Examines Where To From Here, at The Microlise Transport Conference


The RHA, as the UK’s only trade association dedicated solely to the needs of UK road transport operators, will once again play a central role at the upcoming Microlise Transport Conference, taking place on the 20th May at The Ricoh Arena in Coventry.

Richard Burnett, RHA Chief Executive, will discuss the post-Brexit landscape, clean air zones, investment in road infrastructure and the skills shortage and need for diversity within the transport sector.

In addition, Richard will update the industry on the continuing work the RHA is doing to tackle the issues facing operators.

“The Microlise Transport Conference is the key date in the industry calendar for discussing the key topics and learnings about the future of our industry,” said Richard Burnett, Chief Executive at the RHA. “We’re pleased to be participating in this event to engage with delegates on a number of important issues and outline how the RHA is engaging with government to represent the needs of road transport operators.”

“We have worked closely with the RHA for a number of years and value their input across our conference programme,” said Nadeem Raza, Chief Executive at Microlise. “Both organisations share similar values and a dedication to improve an industry that is vital to the UK economy. The Microlise Transport Conference sets out to empower delegates with new knowledge through access to thought leaders. The programme this year will continue to do just that. We look forward to Richard’s update which will align with our conference theme of innovation, technology and the future of the industry.”

Hosted by journalist, lobbyist and presenter Quentin Willson, the Microlise Transport Conference agenda will feature a range of industry leaders and subject matter experts, covering both the issues of today and the trends that will shape the future of road transport. The conference will also give delegates direct access to four workshop programmes and an extensive exhibition area.
