Backhouse Jones, in conjunction with Addleshaw Goddard, have lodged a ground-breaking legal action with the Competition Appeal Tribunal (CAT) on behalf of the Road Haulage Association (RHA). The application, lodged on 17 July 2018, signals the start of a claim against European truck manufacturers for compensation in excess of £1 billion for thousands of road haulage operators who have suffered loss as a result of the illegal cartel activities.
The collective claim is open to RHA members and non-members alike, and currently has over 7,000 road haulage operators who have signed up or registered an interest. It is anticipated that the number of claimants signing up will increase significantly over the coming months and this can be done by visiting www.truckcartelleaglaction.com .
