“It’s good to see AB Agri making this clear,” said RHA MD of policy and public affairs, Rod McKenzie. “Operators were worried about being bullied into joining another non statutory safety body under a threat of losing work. We welcome this clarification and stress we are all committed to safety and best practice but further schemes beyond the credible Earned Recognition scheme are not the way to go: hauliers are facing enough costs with Covid and Brexit without adding to their already hefty bill.”
