Joining Forces for Trailer Security
The Equipment Register (TER) plays a crucial role in tracking stolen trailers and plant equipment. The NTTA is proud to be supporting the TER's trailer registration initiative.
By partnering with TER, the NTTA strives to make trailer registration a common practice and promote responsible trailer ownership. The TER collaborates extensively with all UK police forces, The Chief Constables Association and other government bodies, assisting them in identifying various plant, equipment, and trailers. This collaboration between TER and the police ensures a streamlined process for identifying and recovering stolen assets.
The NTTA supports the TER's mission to enhance security in the light trailer industry and is dedicated to advocating for the importance of trailer registration. Our goal is to inform trailer manufacturers, businesses and the public about the advantages of registering trailers with the TER.
