Operators must get set for the Glasgow Games

Customers of haulage firms delivering during the Glasgow Commonwealth Games this summer need to work with them and have realistic expectations of what is achievable, according to the Road Haulage Association.

Martin Reid, RHA director for Scotland, said members were “reasonably happy” with the information they have been provided with, but would have liked more time to prepare.

“The haulage industry is pretty resilient,” he said. “We have to look at these things as an opportunity. Yes, along with the rest of the world we could have done with more time to prepare, but the guys organising the games have told us at every stage when information will be issued and they have delivered on that.

“What we have to remember is this is a very different beast to the Olympics, with a much lighter touch. Clients’ expectations have to be realistic, so they are not expecting the earth at a time when logistics could be more problematic than usual,” he said.

The comments came after Scotland’s traffic commissioner Joan Aitken urged operators to check the official Commonwealth Games websites for information and start discussions with customers and commercial partners to manage any impact.
