The article offers information on how hauliers can get a grant to expand their business. The major source of public grants is the government. Most other grants sources are local but a few national and European grants are still available and these tend to have far higher capital limits. Most business grants are intended to encourage hauliers to do something they would not otherwise be able to afford, or to take their business in a direction that is socially or economically valuable to the wider community.
