Logistics chiefs co-sign RHA letter to PM warning of supply chain collapse

The RHA has written to the Prime Minister urging him to allow the haulage industry access to EU and EEA labour before the supply chain collapses, amid reports that supermarkets are already struggling to receive goods.

The letter, which is co-signed by a raft of haulage and logistics bosses, said it was too late to train up HGV drivers to deal with the existing crisis and a temporary worker visa was now required to enable staff to be shipped in from abroad.

The RHA said it was clear that ministers at the Department for Transport and the Department for Work and Pensions had no immediate plan for resolving the deteriorating shortage of drivers and so the Prime Minister needed to step in and fast-track a solution.
