Dunlop partners with RHA HGV Heroes

Premium tyre manufacturer Dunlop will be exhibiting at the CV Show (Stand 5G38) for the first time, together with the Road Haulage Association (RHA).

Alongside the RHA, Dunlop will be championing the HGV Heroes campaign, raising awareness of the driver crisis facing the road haulage industry and working to redefine the image of the driving profession.

Marc Preedy, Commercial Director at Goodyear Dunlop said: “Last year we kicked off the HGV Heroes campaign with the RHA. We achieved a great deal in a short time in terms of raising the profile of this issue, with national media and social media.

This year we want to use our industry’s biggest event to champion this cause again and hopefully, help recruit new drivers. The CV Show gives a great flavour of the transport sector today – the innovation, the critical role it plays in terms of the UK’s supply chain and its evolving nature in the face of online retail and ever shortening delivery times.

Never has there been a better time to get into our industry and we’re hoping to attract a new generation of HGV Heroes this year.”

Dunlop will be hosting a Truck Challenge game using remote control trucks at the CV Show, inviting visitors to see if they could be a HGV Hero. The Challenge will feature a competition with daily winners and an overall champion.
