FTA partners with Highways Agency

The Freight Transport Association (FTA) and the Highways Agency (HA) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to ensure both organisations work together to promoting and developing transport initiatives, such as clearer travel warnings for HGVs in the event of severe weather.

Theo de Pencier, CEO of the FTA, says: “Both organisations share mutual aims in terms of better serving road freight operators, whether that is about access to up-to-date information or, in the longer term, secure lorry parking provision.  With closer collaboration and a sharing of intelligence we look forward to effecting real change for the better.”

Graham Dalton, HA chief executive, adds: “We’ll be working with the FTA to keep freight operators informed, both on immediate issues on the network and on longer-term developments and improvements, and to investigate ways to improve the way we operate for the benefit of the transport sector and wider UK economy.”
