It’s been a slow change away from 7.5T trucks in the haulage industry; in fact it has taken a generation (possibly more) for hauliers to make the move from drivers who only drive 7.5T’s to drivers who can drive Category C, or Class 2, vehicles as well as the 7.5Ts under one licence.

The ratio of 7.5 – 10 tonne trucks to 12 tonne trucks is now 5:1 compared with 12:1 in 1998,
