Welcome to the Heavy Transport Association
The Heavy Transport Association (HTA) is the only specialist Trade Association for heavy/abnormal load hauliers and manufacturers of specialist heavy haulage equipment. 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.
The Heavy Transport Association website provides news and information that affect the sector as well as 24hr online access to current and archived information. Much of the HTA site content is private to Members of the HTA and require a member login in order to access. The HTA welcomes eligible new members; to apply
