Membership of this group is open to hauliers within the agricultural and aggregates industries (particularly members operating within London on construction, demolition contracts) and those operating tipper vehicles in other regions of the UK.. The group also 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, Home Grown Cereal Authority, 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.
Socially, the highlight of the year is the increasingly popular Agricon conference, which is organised in conjunction with the RHA’s Livestock and Milk Group.
Membership of the group is subject to a fee of £10 + VAT.
