National Lorry Week – Keeping our nation moving.

Every year, the Road Haulage Association celebrates the vital role of transport – the UK’s fifth-largest industry. This is the 8th year the RHA have run the event and it will be held between the 24th to the 30th of October 2022. There have been lots of activities ahead of the event – you can find all the details on RHA’s social media channels and by searching #NationalLorryWeek.

National Lorry Week is a great opportunity to celebrate the vital role of the haulage industry in our everyday lives. It’s a fantastic way to promote employment within the industry, especially because 98% of our essential consumer goods are transported by road.

This year, the event will focus on career opportunities within the logistics sector and encouraging young people and anyone who may be considering a new challenge to think about joining the next generation of drivers, managers, and technicians.

The National Lorry Week is a great chance to shout out to the industry heroes and their hard work. WT Transport has been showing support to HGV drivers showing why Northamptonshire is a great place for job opportunities within the industry.

To show the support for transport and its heroes we have launched a Referral Scheme, we are always on the lookout for quality drivers. We hope that the referral scheme will encourage additional talent into the industry.
