Freight Crime

The RHA has launched a drive ahead of the local elections to get freight crime taken more seriously.

It says freight crimes cost the haulage industry and the UK economy around £250m a year.

It wants to see more consistency with how police forces manage abnormal load enforcement.

The campaign calls for:

Full engagement with the National Vehicle Crime Intelligence Service (NavCIS) including reporting instances of freight crime directly to the unit and requesting assistance where significant instances are reported;

Including freight crime in policies relating to organised crime and liaise with other forces including through the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners;

More safe and secure truck parking;

Supporting truckstops with investment in security measures;

Creating a local awareness campaign;

Also don’t miss the Truckfest in Lincoln next month (May 4-6).  There’s a discount for RHA members.
