The IRHA is the recognised national representative body of the licensed road haulage industry in the Republic of Ireland. IRHA members operate under Road Haulage Operator Licences issued by the Department of Transport. A Road Haulage Operator’s Licence is required where goods are carried for hire or reward in a vehicle or combination of vehicles which is in excess of 3.5 (metric) tonnes.
The IRHA was founded in 1973 with the purpose of representing and promoting the interests of Ireland’s licensed road haulage industry – on a national and international level. The Association promotes excellence, professionalism and safety in the operation of road transport businesses.
New IRHA President
Following a very successful annual conference and AGM over the weekend (8th & 9th of May) in the Slieve Russell Hotel, Cavan, the National Council of the IRHA elected Ms Verona Murphy of Drumur Transport, Wexford as the new President of the Association for the coming two year term.
Verona is only the second female President of the Association in its 42 year history and reflects the very significant role played by the very many ladies operating within the sector. The IRHA looks forward to continuing to progress the matters of concern to the industry over the coming period. More in-depth detail will be provided to members via our forthcoming members newsletter.
IRHA Preferred Supplier Programme 2014-2015
The IRHA Preferred Supplier Programme has now completed another term in operation and a sincere thank you to all third parties who participated. The Programme has been a huge success with IRHA members providing very positive feedback as to the competitive pricing and quality of service provided by both our Corporate Partners & Patrons.
Year three of the programme will commence in July 2013 and the IRHA will continue to only promote companies whom have the most reliable and cost effective product / service for operators in the road haulage industry. Our revised Preferred Supplier Directory will not be an exhaustive list of every supplier in the country but will continue to be limited to a small number of third parties who will have to pass a vetting process undertaken by IRHA head-office before inclusion in the Directory.
The Association is pleased to provide the mandatory drivers CPC training for HGV drivers in IRHA head-office, Bracetown, Clonee. The Association has been approved to provide all modules to interested parties on an on-going basis.
If you wish to be facilitated on any date that is not already scheduled, please contact head-office and we will seek to meet your requirements where possible.
