Since the UK’s plunge into lockdown on 23 March the nation’s reliance on truckers to deliver food, medicines and the all-important personal protection equipment to NHS frontliners has been massive – and the penny has finally dropped. The UK haulage industry does an incredible job – not just in times of hardship but every single day of the year.
RHA has launched ‘HGV Heroes’ – a campaign that recognises the industry’s workers and the job they do, 24/7/365. From now until 13 August, the RHA will be celebrating the industry’s driving force with HGV Heroes which is open to anyone who works in the sector: drivers, logistics champions and admin teams – it doesn’t matter.
Our latest campaign celebrates the amazing work our industry has been doing to keep our country going through difficult times.

The UK’s road freight industry isn’t just about trucks, it’s about people. It’s about those who’ve quite literally gone the extra mile to keep the nation fed and protected during an incredibly difficult and challenging time” – RHA chief executive, Richard Burnett commented on the campaign. – “HGV Heroes will ensure that they are not just remembered as getting us all through some very dark times – we should be celebrating them every single day.”
Each entry will receive an HGV Hero ‘thank you’ certificate. At the end of the campaign, one lucky nominee will be chosen at random for an additional prize.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance for us to say ‘thank you’, let’s not waste it. Without them we have nothing,” he added.
