Assuming that the cartel did have an impact on the prices of new and used trucks, road haulage operators will have lost out through paying high prices when purchasing new trucks but might on the other hand have achieved higher prices when it came to selling those trucks on. While all members of the collective claim will share a common interest in establishing that there was an overcharge in the sale of new trucks at as high a level as possible, there is potentially an underlying divergence of interest between purchasers of new trucks and purchasers of used trucks. The impact of the cartel on the prices of new and used trucks and the relationship between the two will be a matter of expert evidence in due course and the Tribunal will ultimately determine the matter (unless the case settles before final judgment). It is important to note that, in agreeing to be part of the RHA’s collective claim, you agree to accept the determination of the RHA, following expert advice, not only as to how the impact of the cartel on the prices of new and used trucks should be presented to the Tribunal but also as to the appropriate relationship between new and used truck prices in any settlement discussions.
The whole process (including answering the questions below) should be quick and straightforward but it is important that you complete all the steps and answer all the questions as fully and accurately as possible.
