Transport Law & Haulage Solicitors

Transport Law & Haulage Solicitors

In the UK economy alone, the road haulage industry is reportedly worth a staggering 74 billion. The success of its economy relies on an efficient road haulage sector and road infrastructure.  With over 600,000 Goods Vehicle driving licence holders and over 496,000 commercial vehicles on the roads, the road haulage sector has the difficult task of delivering goods safely to customers, whilst tackling variable road conditions, inevitable congestion and all the while adhering to the strict rules and regulations.

Transport Law is the area of law which permits, regulates, and prohibits the activities of road haulage. The law governing this is highly complex and an increasing number of companies are finding themselves falling foul of these strict regulations.

The tightly regulated licensing regimes are designed to promote road safety compliance to the reported 2.2 million people working in the haulage industry. The key to success and longevity in the road haulage, for both business operator and the professional driver is compliance.
