Danbrit Shipping have been members of the Heavy Transport Association for around 18 months.

Below is a brief overview of what they do.

The Heavy Transport Association (HTA) is the only specialist Trade Association for the heavy/abnormal load industry.  Examples of members include (but not limited to) abnormal load hauliers, truck/trailer manufacturers, route surveyors, permit agents, consultants, abnormal load escorters, ferry owners, infrastructure owners/managers, etc.  HTA members are consequently a highly specialist group of operators with very different needs over other sectors of the transportation industry



The Association was originally formed in 1983 and its operator members specialise in the movement of abnormal loads.  HTA Members meet at quarterly General Meetings.  Due to geographic spread of membership, meeting venues generally alternate between the North of England and the South Midlands.  The HTA is a member of ESTA (The European Association of Abnormal Road Transport and Mobile Cranes) and has held the Presidency for 3 years.
