OPERATING costs for express carriers have increased this year by the same amount as in the last three years combined. This is the findings of the Road Haulage Association's express carriers group. The rates sub-committee has sent a circular to its members containing the following analysis of the increases: 1970, 14.8 per cent; 1971, 10.75; 1972, 8; 1973, 8.1; 1974 (JanuaryJune) 9.2. Between July 1 and November 30 this year costs have risen by a further 10 to 15 per cent. Although the circular does not directly advise members to increase their rates it draws attention to recent remarks made by Mr Ken Hatcher, the RHA's chairman. He said that the frequent and substantial cost increases required "a thorough and continuing check on the prices of all commodities and services and an equally thorough and continuing application of increases in haulage charges, to ensure that even a modest return in capital is secured by hauliers".
