National Lorry Week

Its National Lorry Week starting 26th October and today Jason visited his local road haulage company Tom Moorhouse and Son ltd in Honley. The National Lorry Week campaign was created by the Road Haulage Association to raise awareness of the HGV driver shortage and to encourage a new generation of drivers to get involved.

Love the Lorry trip

There is currently a shortfall of 45,000 HGV drivers in the UK and over the next two years a further 35,000 existing drivers are due to retire, furthermore due to economic growth it is predicted that by 2020 that the UK will require an extra 150,000 new drivers.
