The UK road user charge levy is proposed to be introduced in April 2014; the charge requires all foreign registered HGV vehicles to pay a charge when entering UK territory – including Northern Ireland.The proposed charge can be paid as a daily levy of £10, or as an annual sum of £1,000, depending on the haulage operator’s preference.The haulage industry feel the introduction of the charge will have major repercussions for Irish hauliers operating in the six counties and transiting through them.Donegal Hauliers in particular, feel that this charge will have an adverse effect on their livelihoods, on the haulage industry, and on industry as a whole. Local representatives, as well as various media outlets, will be in attendance, with all interested parties welcome to attend the event.  DONEGAL TRUCKERS TO MEET TO DISCUSS NEW CHARGES was last modified: February 12th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
