Membership of this group is open to hauliers within the agricultural and aggregates industries and operating tipper vehicles throughout the UK. The group covers the food chain from field to plate, as well as the construction and civil engineering sector, and aims to provide help and advice to members.
Promoting the interests of members in sector-specific matters, the group works through the secretary and its elected committee, which meets three times per year.
The group maintains formal and informal communication with government and its agencies and with other representative trade bodies, including the Agricultural Industries Confederation, Agriculture & Horticulture Development Board, Quarry Products Association, National Farmers Union and others.
All group members are encouraged to provide input into issues emanating from government, including DfT, DVSA DVLA, the HSE and other bodies that affect group members’ activities.
