INTERWORKING between hauliers I will receive a fillip from the publication by the Road Haulage Association, this week, of their directory of longdistance hauliers. It contains over 700 operators' names listed alphabetically under the names of the towns in which they have depots.
The directory has been compiled by the interim committee of long-distance hauliers, who are also producing a list of aims and objects. These will include the establishment of fair rates; settlement of accounts by the end of themonth after the receipt of the invoice, and an undertaking by members of the R.H.A, not to solicit traffic that they have previously carried for other members.
The formation of a committee to arbitrate in disputes between members is being considered, but, meanwhile, members are expected voluntarily to abide by the principles of fair trading laid down.
