DELIVERING YOUR PLANT REQUIREMENTS
We deliver anything from a mini tracked dumper to a 14m telehandler direct to your site anywhere in the Sussex, east Surrey, South London and west Kent areas. Our HGV drivers are experienced, professionals who know that our customers’ delivery requirements need to be met.
This month sees the Road Haulage Association’s “National Lorry Week” designed to
raise awareness of the vital role the lorry plays in our daily lives and the difficulties
facing the future of the UK’s haulage industry.
The RHA cites there is a national HGV driver shortage currently estimated at around
45,000 and with 35,000 existing drivers due to retire within the next 2 years the
situation is likely to reach crisis point very soon. This could grind the UK and the UK
economy to a standstill unless more people can be encouraged, with the help of much
needed government funding, to train and take up an HGV driving career.
” National Lorry Week”will continue to promote safety awareness with lorries for pedestrians, cyclists and other road users. Some hauliers will be opening their yards to the public to come and find out more about lorries and logistics, others will be taking their vehicles to organised events where the public can get up close and climb inside the cab to get a birds eye view of what its like to drive an HGV.
“Love The Lorry” is a competition being run by the RHA during the same week in which YOU could win a prize worth a £1000.
Whilst delivering plant machinery to your sites Kelsey Plant Hire will be supporting this competition by displaying the “Love The Lorry” logo on our own two plant lorries. For competition details see www.rha.uk.net/events/national-lorry-week or twitter@RHANews.
