Roads Minister Baroness Vere of Norbiton states “the whole nation will owe haulage and logistics workers a huge debt of gratitude”.

The Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Roads and Transport Security, Baroness Vere of Norbiton has written a heartfelt letter to the Haulage industry, sent to, extending her, the Government and the whole nations thanks and gratitude to the haulage industry for keeping vital supply chains open during the Covid-19 crisis.

Isis Insurance, a specialist insurance broker for the Haulage industry, wholeheartedly agrees with the Roads Minister’s sentiments and applauds her efforts to recognise Parliament and the wider gratitude of the UK.

Her statement can be read in full on the Commercial Motor website but the key points are outlined below:

“During this time of national crisis, it’s imperative that those who can work from home do so. But it’s also crucial that goods continue to flow around Britain, that supply chains are kept open, that hospitals and chemists continue to receive deliveries of medicines, and that supermarkets can restock with fresh produce every night. This represents an unprecedented challenge for hauliers and logistics firms operating under difficult circumstances, yet it’s one the industry has risen to with outstanding dedication and professionalism.”

She concluded:

“Of course, there will be more difficult months ahead. We are still in the early stages of this pandemic, and no-one knows when things will return to normal. But when that day comes, and we can be sure we’ve beaten the virus, the whole nation will owe haulage and logistics workers a huge debt of gratitude.”
