Mobile Batching Impact Study

Mobile Batching Impact Study

The Batched On-site Association (BSA) is the trade body for the Mobile Batching Plant (MBP) sector. MBPs deliver and mix concrete on site to order. The UK Department for Transport (DfT) was considering a regulatory change that would see their operating weight restricted to that of a Heavy Goods Vehicle.

Regeneris Consulting was appointed by the BSA to undertake an assessment of the sector’s current economic contribution to the UK, and to consider the likely economic consequences, if the proposed policy was introduced. We gathered data on the sector’s economic footprint via a survey of all operators of MBPs in the UK and modelled the direct, indirect and induced effects arising from the sector’s activities. We also gathered intelligence via case studies with key customers on the wider benefits delivered by the sector to the construction sector and wider economy. We considered the impact of the policy change directly on the sector, on its customer base and supply chain. We also quantified the likely environmental consequences.

The report was used as a key input into DfT’s consultation on the policy and has was presented to MPs at a special briefing event at the Houses of Parliament.
