FTA and Highways Agency form closer links

Posted on 19th January 2012 By Steve Clark

The Freight Transport Association (FTA) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Highways Agency in order to form closer links with the agency and improve conditions for haulage workers.

Both of the bodies’ chief executives announced their plans to foster further cooperation and understanding between their respective organisations.

The main thrust of the MoU is to help both parties develop relevant and helpful transport initiatives, such as creating clearer transport warnings for snow and ice in case of severe weather conditions.

Theo de Pencier, chief executive officer of the FTA, said the two organisations shared the aim of making life easier for freight professionals.

“With closer collaboration and a sharing of intelligence we look forward to effecting real change for the better,” he added.

The FTA recently expressed its support for Transport for London’s scheme to reduce pollution in the capital city by reducing carbon emissions through the Clean Air Fund.
